We made this family tree for my grandmother`s 80th birthday, using only the Cricut expression 2 machine, the Cricut alphabet cartridge and also the wall décor and more cartridge, and various colors of cardstock (different greens and also a dark chocolate brown)
1. load your cricut machine with your green paper and pick a leaf shape (from the wall décor and more cartridge) now cut about 50 various shapes and green colored leafs. (you will need about 45 sheets of paper)
After you have finished the leafs, load your Cricut machine with brown cardstock and cut out about 10 phrases.
(shown in the picture above)
After you have finished making the phrases for the trunk you can cut out a swirl out of chocolate brown (optional) to connect the top half of the tree and the trunk together. (shown in the picture above)
we used the wall and arranged the leafs to look like the top of a tree. then added the swirl and then arranged the phrases for the trunk, then finally we used some photos and arranged them on the leafs. Hope you enjoyed!
