Project Details

  • Level:beginner
  • Time:1 hour

Project Instructions

  • 1
    Using project photo and frame as a guide for design and size, draw a tree onto Mocha Divine cardstock and cut it out. Label this as a template for future use.
  • 2
    Use micro-tip scissors to create a Pastel Pink background large enough to fit your frame opening.
  • 3
    Draw several large (roughly 2 inch long) leaves with Bubblegum, Green Bean, Light Blue and Lemon Yellow cardstock. Cut out with micro-tip scissors. Repeat, but this time make the leaves roughly 1 inch long.
  • 4
    Punch an extra large Seal of Approval on Boysenberry for each member of the family you are putting on the family tree.
  • 5
    Punch a large Round and Round on Snowcap for each member of the family you are putting on the family tree. Using project photo as a guide, use markers to add family member's faces and distinguishing characteristics. Adhere the family member's faces to the cutouts from step 5.
  • 6
    Use scalloped-edge or pinking scissors and Green Bean cardstock to create the top layer of grass. Adhere this piece closest to the tree. Cut four other different pieces of cardstock in varying widths from the paper pad to create a layered grass look. Adhere to the Pastel Pink cardstock.
  • 7
    Use Glue Dots to adhere the tree and add large leaves in clusters around the branches, filling in with smaller leaves in the openings.
  • 8
    Use Glue Dots to adhere family faces to the tree.
  • 9
    Print names of family members with desired font and font color using a word processing program, cut out with micro-tip scissors and adhere to the tree using Glue Dots.
  • 10
    Optional: use the stickers to add a word that describes the family tree, such as the relation of those in the images or a family name.
  • 11
    Tie a bow from the ribbon and adhere to the bottom of the tree.
