DIY Leafy Resin Paperweight Office Decor

It’s the first day of fall! In our area of southern Ontario you can already catch the occasional glimpse of the leaves changing colour. Soon they’ll be perfect to collect and make a resin paperweight with!

A couple of weeks ago we shared the tutorial for this DIY resin paperweight using various species of maple leaves I collected in my neighbourhood. It sits so nicely on my dining room table (which does double duty as my office). The many facets and colours in the paperweight make it so interesting to look at when I’m stuck for inspiration.

Very clever

. I would like to make a paperweight for my friend who lost her husband a few years ago.

Just prior to lamenting that he had not been able to purchase a gift for her —— On their last anniversary, from his voice controlled wheelchair, he exhibited his ongoing charm and asked her “ May I offer you an anniversary potato chip?”. Do you think a potato chip would hold up in resin?

I think I would use a thicker kettle fried chip. Any advice you have will be appreciated. Thank you.
