2. You can press and dry the leaf between pieces of wax paper with a warm iron.
3. You can use a clear adhesive laminate attached to a card or paper backing.
4. You could also seal the leaf in a small jar of alcohol to preserve it. It will turn white and if you remove it from the alcohol, it will deteriorate.
In all of these methods, the color will eventually be removed, however, the laminating method seems to retain the color the longest.
