1. Fold a strip of metallic paper in half, then use craft scissors to cut out 3/4-inch-long half ovals from the crease to create the leaves.
2. Glue them, fold side up, to 4-inch-long pieces of metallic ribbon, leaving a 1 1/2-inch-long "stem."
3. Wrap a short length of ribbon around the end of the bottom leaf, and secure with a dot of glue.
4. Pin to cake.
