Family Tree Project

Here I got the idea to make this family tree for my brother Andy this year for his birthday. I kept wanting to do it for he and Meghann for their wedding but I just didn't get it together. That, and as willing as I was to pay the big bucks for the Red Envelope version, the resourceful girl within could not justify playing that much for frames without glass and paper shapes that I could create myself. I am planning to make the second half for his wife for her birthday and they can hang them together. That's assuming they like them enough. I printed the names of family on colored cardstock and then used a cookie cutter to trace and cut the maple leaves. It was lucky that I just happened to have a maple leaf cookie cutter around the house, eh?
