This is one of my favorite paper crafts ever. It is so simple.
First you pick a nice background paper. I like the stripey one.
Truth be told the one I am scrap lifting is actually pieced together
with several different papers, little strips glued to one
background paper. I thought there were so many cute
paper patterns that I would just cut out that step. OK, so
I don't have a "Cricut" machine but my friend does. She
generously cute oodles of ovals out for me in each color. The
exact amount is about 20 in each color. Way more then you
imagine you need. Next I used a stamp pad, brownish in color
to edge and distress the leaves. I also folded them in half to give
them even more dimension. Then you just write the
names of your family members on as many leaves
as you need. I just did my immediate family but
extended family would be really cute too.
Then I just free hand drew a tree trunk on the
back of the brown paper. Then I cut it out, next I used glue
dots to adhere the tree trunk to the paper. Then you add
the leaves, making sure to evenly distribute the names
Last I added a cute little quote about how
money does not grow on this tree,
that it is a tree where love grows, and finished
it off with our family name and date of marriage!
