Our paper eucalyptus is a pretty DIY project for a rustic wedding. The thing I love about eucalyptus is the soft green color of the leaves. It’s such a calming tone. The shape of the leaves on our paper version are long and fine and as such, this is the perfect paper wedding green. Use it as a garland along the front of your top table, as a vertical back drop to your wedding photographs or around the wedding cake as we have done here.
This is a simple paper eucalyptus to make. I printed a watercolor pattern onto my sage paper before cutting the leaves. This addition gives the foliage a more realistic look as the tones of green change slightly across the paper. Open the watercolor JPG and print this onto sage green text weight paper. From here you can either use the SVG file and cut on your cutting machine or download the PDF below and print the pattern template directly onto the paper. Cut with scissors or a craft knife then gently curl the leaves with the blunt edge of the scissors to create a little dimension to your work. You can follow the easy tutorial below. Enjoy! ~ Lia
