my family lit up

My most favorite thing in the world is my family.  My 2nd?  Taking pictures of them and displaying!  I try to come up with creative ways to display my precious people. 

Here is my Family Tree.  I stuffed a tall glass cylinder with twigs and brown corded seed lights, printed my photos in sepia tone, trimmed the photos with pinking shears, then clipped them to the twigs with mini binder clips, and wrapped the cylinder with ribbon. 

Simple, simple, simple....... I change the photos out often, and use different ribbon as my mood and motif change. 

Pattern or design used: My own design - Family Tree

Brilliant work junk friend!
