My Family Tree By Charlie's Hand

My Family Tree By Charlie's Hand
One of our daughters, Rebecca, gave us this gorgeous framed paper cut Family Tree for Christmas. We were both beyond delighted with it. It was made by a very clever woman called Charlie and her company is By Charlie's Hand. What amazes me is that she does it without the assistance of a laser cutter, just a scalpel and a steady hand. Go and take a look at her Facebook page where you can order one for yourself.

This is it inside the frame. Notice that our tree is heavy with fruit, any more additions to our family and we will have a forest.

This is a work in progress image I found on her Facebook page, not ours but it's interesting to see the process.
