3D Family Tree – Genealogy Crafts. Many of MadAboutGenealogy’s readers have been asking if I would add another category to the website – genealogy crafts. I am more than happy to oblige as, although my main passion is genealogy,a very close second is all things craft. My mother was a great dressmaker and craftswoman, the craft part got handed down to me, but missed out on the dressmaker genes as I can’t sew to save myself! So here is the first of occasional posts on crafts with a genealogy twist.
This first post isn’t something I have made myself, it was designed and created by my fellow blogger, Jennifer Maker of jennifermaker.com who has been kind enough to allow me to use it as the basis of this post. This delightful family tree can be made out of wood, Kraft board or cardboard and although you could cut the pieces out by hand the best method is to use a Cricut Design and Cut Machine – for more details on the Cricut CLICK HERE. I long for one of this and am saving up to buy one as soon as I can.
Jennifer is very clever and also very generous as not only has she designed the family tree, but she created SVG, DXF & PDF files that you can download free from her website. There are full instructions plus photos to help you make your own family tree. You could write family names on each branch, colour code and link it to a framed family chart hung close by or hang miniature ancestral photos, pasted onto stiff card, from the branches.
Do pop over to Jennifer’s website as I know you will be enchanted with all the lovely creations. CLICK HERE for Jennifer Maker’s DIY 3D Family Tree
Thank you Jennifer 🙂
