Craft Yourself a Spa Day
In nature Eucalyptus branches are known for their healing properties, especially when it comes to the respiratory system. For us crafting mimics these benefits; it gives us a chance to breathe and press pause on our busy lives and it heals our souls in the process. This project uses our very own heavy crepe paper. If you’d like to join us in adding this aura of peaceful craft to your space, just follow along with our stress-free tutorial below. For an added benefit, spray the leaves with Eucalyptus essential oil when you are finished. All you have to do is crank up some calming tunes, take a nice deep breath and settle into your craft.

Hey Lia! 😁 If you were to make this now, would you use brown crepe paper and glue to secure the leaves? Or would you stick with floral tape? Many thanks!
I would use either brown, copper, or gold crepe paper. The copper and gold do not look as metallic when stretched and they offer a lighter tone.

I am using a Cricut Maker but have trouble with the rotary blade cutting all the way through. Do you have a recommended cut pressure for crepe paper?
We usually use the Crepe Paper setting set to “more pressure”, but have also used the Denim and Cotton settings. We filmed a live video last Friday demonstrating our tips & tricks using the Maker if you want to watch! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=91IyqbcFQzk
Love this! I cannot have eucalyptus in my house as I get pain in my stomach, then get nauseous anytime I smell it. With these I can have the look of it without the distress!!!
Oh I’m so happy we can help!! 🙂
I noticed the svg file when loaded has the daisy one instead of the eucalyptus file
Hi Laura! I just checked the SVG download and am only seeing the eucalyptus. Can you send a screenshot to email@example.com?
