Why not use a natural resource when crafting? I recently pressed some leaves I found in my parents' backyard. Being the weirdo I am, I scanned them onto my computer (results above) and they'll be forever remembered as beautiful! It's crazy the difference in color, shape, texture in the leaves, and all laying just a few feet from one another.
I also pressed leaves from the yard last year, and incorporated them into a wedding-related craft.
See what I did with them tomorrow!
