Leaf it to Nature

I've had a couple people ask me where I got the leaves that I used on the various bases I've done (like Doomshaper for example). So, it got me curious myself about these little magical decorations.

The "leaves" are actually a part of the seed pods of Birch trees. Here's a picture of a Birch tree:

The seed pods grow in great numbers on a single tree and look like this:

When you flake apart the seed pods, they separate into seeds and then the little "leaf" bits, that are great for basing, like this:

And there you have it!
