I would leave the leaves on and let it grow out. You might even let the plant dry out a little and gradually move the leaf over a bit. I think it will work. Get double sided tape and take a piece and put it under the leaf you want to move and then stick it to the leaf ring in the place you want the leaf. It will stick to the ring and eventually the leaf will grow out where you want it to. You still have two months. Get going tonight. If I make it to convention I am hoping to enter an AVSA collection with Shy Blue, Rob's Argyle Socks and Jazz Bouquet. All from you I think except maybe Shy Blue. We might be competing against each other for the AVSA Gold Rosette!
