Guest Book Tree

If you have been on Pinterest you might have seen these trees.  They are the big trend for wedding guest books.  You make the tree and have everyone that comes to the wedding, put their finger print on the tree and write their name by their finger print.  FUN!  So my future daughter in law came to me to see if I could help her make one for her friends that were married last weekend.

Here's what we came up with.  How fun is that!  We thought it turned out so good.  AND, this tree was created with just ONE branch from our Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge.  We made branches that were 6", 4" & 2" and make it look like a tree!  How did we do?  

This is a picture of it with all the finger prints on it.  WOW!  What a beautiful tree all filled in!  LOL She has a frame for it and will be displayed in the new couples home.  What a great way to remember your wedding and those who shared your day!  

 There was one flaw in our tree...the swing was meant for the bride & groom...their finger prints were SUPPOSE to go there, but the grandma & grandpa got their first.  UGH!  lol  Oh well.  I guess next time the bride & groom will have to put their finger prints on FIRST!  But all in all it turned out great.

Here is the sign we made to tell them what to do.  I guess we should have also had a sign that said, "swing reserved for the bride & groom"  LOL
It is so nice to have a daughter in law (soon to be) that likes crafts too!  Now if I can just get her scrapbooking!!!  In time....
