Pretty nifty. Here's some info about the leaf punch used.

"Miniature Leaf Punch perfect to create miniature leaves compatible with scales 1:35, 1:43, 1:48, and 1:76 (54mm, 32mm, 28mm and 25mm)."

According to the showcase link posted by Armand above, it will cut only thin paper. Still that's probably what you want for scale-correct leaves.

Hmmm … in the picture from the manufacturer's web site (I posted below), they show punches from real leaves (dried I think). Certainly thin and a great way to get the color correct!

Any chance anyone in the U.S. carries this item? I've looked at the regular haunts for something similar and found a few but nothing like this one.

Thanks.

The leaves and technique are nice but the _mural_! The mural is spectacular, and done by hand! I am truly impressed by the icon-like quality of it and the treatment.

Glad you like the mural my friend.

I just got three of the Green Stuff punches (orange, purple and lgt blue) and they are cool! believe it or not they are to scale. I think you can order them only from GS in Spain but shipping (along with 2 packs of Milliput and Blue Stuff molding compound was only over $4.00 USD

@CeroLucifus
Most of the time, you wouldn't want to use it on dry leaves, but dry them after you use the punch. With dry leaves, you can crumble the leaves almost as easily as you can punch through them.
