Default paper leaflitter

This may be a cute dumb idea...

Has anyone thought of somehow stamping out leaves from brown paper bags or similar material...?

I hear Kitcolebay has success with using dollar bills, but I'm not sure if regular paper would hold up very well

Seriously thought, I think paper would just end up being goo pretty quickly. Why not just use real leaves?

The point of leaves is for the leaves to slowly decay and feed your springs and isos, and in turn the decaying leaves provide nutrients for your plants. The isn't really a point to substituting leaves out. Why fix something that isn't broken?

I suppose it would be for people in areas where leaflitter is hard to come by.

You basically want something with high lignin content in particular and cellulose as well.

I've observed brown cardboard to rot fairly slowly. I often take pieces out of my cultures and toss them into my tanks and they don't stand out in the leaflitter.
