DIY Family Tree Placemats

One of the great things about Family Tree Prints is the flexibility of what you do with your custom family tree once you've created it. Once you've input your names, customized and ordered your family tree chart, you own the file, and can do anything you want with it (other than resell it) including printing it off as many times as you want! One prime DIY activity to do with your unlimited printing privileges is creating placements (for your own table, grandchildren, a family reunion, etc.) What could be easier than printing off a bunch of 11" x 17" or 12" x 18" charts and laminating them?

Looking for some different ways to execute this? They will, of course, look fabulous if you create matching placements starting from one of our carefully crafted templates! Another idea that will get every member of your family (that wants to be!) involved is to choose to start from either our Classic White family tree template, or our White Simplicity family tree template, and then letting individual family members color on and decorate their chart before you do the lamination. It's a little reminiscent of the "Pedigree Picasso" competition we ran at Rootstech, where kids were challenged to use their creativity to turn a fan or circle chart into something else (animal, spaceship, etc.), but you can keep it as kid-friendly or classically classy as you want!

Ready to add a little more family to your family dinner? Get started on your own DIY placements by choosing your starting template! (P.S. These also make a FANTASTIC gift for parents or grandparents!)
