|The pink and purple punches where cheap, the yellow punch works.|
I bought two of these for next to nothing on Aliexpress. The third was not cheap (it's the one that says PK-Pro on the bottom. After a quick first test the pink one should actually be binned as its leaf shape is way too big for the scale I work on (28mm heroic). The maple leaf one could work as these leaves are quite big, but - no surprise here - the PK-Pro one is the only one that really works for scale.

Here is the mix almost a month later. The mix consists of the leaves pictured earlier and some yellow leaves I added. My conclusion: the best material to make leaves is leaves.
|And we have a new basing material handy.|
