Leaf Laminating in Autumn

This time of year in New England is a dream for those of us who love to do nature crafts with the children. 
 

 One really fun way to display the beauty of autumn is to collect pretty leaves and flowers you find on a nature walk and preserve them to hang in a window. 
I happen to have a heat laminator which makes this job much more easy. We simply lay out our nature display and put it through our laminator. It is so much fun to see it move through slowly and come out the other end like a piece of artwork.
Another wonderful option is to use wax paper and a hot iron.  Simply put your leaves between two pieces of wax paper, lay a cloth or towel over it and gently iron until they stick together. 

Can you identify the leaves we found?
