A tip for faster results:

Put two sheets of tracing paper on top of each other, glue both layers together outside the lines using the glue stamp - this way, the layers will not slip during cutting.

Cut tracing paper sheets matching the width of the lantern + 1 cm.

Using the glue stamp, apply glue on the leaves and attach them overlapping onto the paper sheet.
