Photo Family Tree

Source: The Martha Stewart Show, May 2007


Here's a unique way to showcase a branch (literally!) of your family lineage. To unify the photos and other components of your display, try creating photo borders and labels using a single family of colors.


  • Collector box

  • Rose leaf punch

  • Colored craft paper

  • Adhesive foam dots

  • Pen

  • Small tree branch

  • Glue pen

  • Scissors

  • Ribbon-style labels


  1. Punch out leaves with our rose leaf craft punch and label with names. Find a small fallen branch with a nice shape and glue leaves on with glue pen, arranging names based on where you will place your photos.

  2. Add a simple border to a photo by cutting out a piece of colored paper 1/8 inch larger than photo on all sides. Glue photo to paper, then attach adhesive foam dots to back to add dimension. Pin photo at corners into collector box backing.

  3. Create a small banner containing your family name or a title using alphabet transfers on ribbon-style labels. Place over bottom of branch and pin at each end.
