Sweet potato vines are popular garden plants that comes in many different colors and shapes, from deep plum to neon green. Plenty of room to get creative! For our frosted paper sweet potato vine, Krista used three colors from our Stone Fruit pack to create the ombre effect these leaves typically have.

This leaf pattern is a fairly simple one to cut by hand, but we recommend using a cutting machine with our SVG file since there is a lot of cutting and scoring to do. If you don’t have a cutting machine, you can always use our printable template instead.
