Family Tree

This family tree I made for my parents is probably one of my favorite paper crafts I have made.  My mom framed it and now it hangs near their front door.  I need to make one of these for our home, too.  Someday...


I just used a 12x12 piece of scrapbook paper for the background, scrapbook paper for the circles that make up the tree, buttons, and brads.  Some of the paper I stamped on also.  I used a background stamp on the paper I cut for the tree trunk.

This was so much fun to make! :)

Very precious. I made one for my husband as a gift for our wedding day, 10 years ago, to show our 2 families joined. I used actual branches, in a shaddow box, with names printed on paper shaped like leaves...still hanging in our front hall!
