Family Silhouettes



I was feeling thrifty and crafty the other day, so I put together this project using things I had around the house:



I started by taking profile shots of the hubs and myself using PhotoBooth on my Mac.


Then I resized them to the size I wanted and printed them out. I cut out the two images and traced them onto the paper I wanted to display. I took creative liberty with my hair and gave myself a hairstyle that was cuter than what it was actually like in real life.

Once they were cut out, I secured them onto a piece of painted cardboard, cut out some vinyl for the bottom, and stuck in a frame. I opted to tape the silhouettes so that we could rearrange the whole thing in the future as our family grows.
