Where do I get the paper rings?

It is a Rhubbard leaf have a few stems soaking in water now to keep the leaves alive until I find the perfect site to do my stepping stone

What is a "paper"? I love this idea for a front walk way.

Looks like a hollyhock leaf to me, and that's what I'll be using for this project.

I could see this with an arrangement of magnolia leaves, fig leaves, elephant ears, short stalks of bamboo with leaves--endless possibiities.

the rhubarb leaf would be great we also have what is call gunners manicata that would be excellent for any size stones up to 4' to 6' if the stone could tolerate the pressure

Mix the cement (finbetong) until it resembles oatmeal. Mixing ratios of water and concrete are also listed on the packaging. Stir in about 10 minutes.
Saw off a paper of suitable size. These are available at well stocked hardware stores.
Oil the rhubarb leaf to get it to release better. Add this to a flat surface and protect the surface during the plastic.
Push the paper ring tight against the sheet and fill with concrete. Stir gently to prevent air bubbles. Place a weight on, making sure it stays in place. Let the concrete burn one days

I'm sure that's a simple rhubarb leaf, lots of that around, even to be found in abandoned gardens and yards.

The leaf looks like a collard, it is a winter veggie.

An Elephant Ear leaf would work nicely...thats acutally what I thought that was pictured

Actually, I checked out the original Swedish site (after I posted my first comment) and it says that it's a rhubarb leaf...but I think a pumpkin leaf would do the trick, too!
Wow I had not idea that was a pumpkin leaf. Thanks! We have farms all around us.
My pumpkins/winter squashes, and some of my zucchinis, produce leaves that big. (And, indeed, it looks to me like the leaf being used there is a pumpkin.) If you don't have a garden, try asking around - I'm sure someone would lend you a pumpkin leaf or two! ;o)

May I ask where you find such a huge leaf for this project? I wonder too if one could lay down a number of oak, maple or other leaf they happen to have in their yard and get a similar result?
