DIY Silhouette

Posted on: Monday, September 5, 2011

I love making silhouettes and have found an effective easy way to create them. All you have to do is take a photograph of a profile (preferably against a white background). Then just print the picture out in black and white on regular paper. You can print any size you like (I usually print 8x10 photographs). Once you have your copy simply layer a piece of paper underneath. I used black here but you can use any solid or patterned paper. I tape a small amount of painters tape on the edges to keep the paper from slipping as I cut around the image. The result: a perfect silhouette. I think they are the sweetest keepsake's.
