So this is my small version.
I used one complete A4 sheet of 5 different greens:
Call Me Clover Shaded Spruce Mint Macaron Garden Green Soft Sea Foam
and punched as many leaves as I could from each sheet.
Next I wrapped some heavy jute string around the disc. Not sure how long but I had a length of about 1m, and needed to add a bit more. This was not wound too tight, but helped to hold the soft suede in place and was just firm enough so I could easily slip some leaves under it.
I picked up 2 or 3 leaves at a time, dipped both stems in a puddle of tombow and adhered the stems onto the card base. sometimes the leaves slipped under one of the pieces of wrapped Soft Suede, sometimes under the twine, and sometimes just laying on top of the previous bunch. Sometimes I twisted 2 or 3 stems together. All the leaves lay in the same direction and at intervals I slipped the twine back over the stems to anchor them - if that makes sense. I covered the whole width of the disc working from side to side.
At the end I didn't have too many leaves left over.
The background paper is from the Pressed Petals Suite and is cut to 9x9" to fit my frame.
I'm really happy with the finished product and will definitely make some more, and although they do take quite a few hours, they are a labour of love. It's the punching that takes the most time, and you have to wash the glue off your fingers quite regularly.

I hope you have a creative week and remember,
