Last week my sister Jackie rang to ask if I could make a laser-cut “Family Tree” for her friend’s anniversary.

Her friend Victoria really really liked the hand-cut trees that are available from Eticut on, but apparently they couldn’t make the piece in time for the anniversary. So I and my trusty laser cutter (I really must come up with a name for it) were asked if we could step in and create a tree with names on it.

This is the version that we came up with…

… and I think it’s one of the nicest things I’ve made. I even managed to find a font called ‘Jasmine UPC’, which seemed appropriate.

(Naturally I have now offered this service in my Etsy shop if anyone else would like a similar tree…)
