I remember doing silhouettes in elementary school with the old fashioned projector light on the chalk board.
I wanted to try a more updated look for my kids. Read a tutorial here on how to do that with paint.net. To be honest I could do step 1 and 2 and then was stuck so then what? Well after about an hour messing with it I called my brother and he did it in 30 seconds with Photoshop! Ha ha. Thanks Ryan 🙂
I’m sure you all are better with computers and can do this no problem!
Take a profile photo of the kiddos
(I had to bribe with M&Ms…see she’s holding them..lol)
and use an editing software to take out the background layer and make the silhouette black. I actually used dark brown on mine.
Then I found some cute frames at Hobby Lobby for 10.00 each and glued the silhouettes on top of scrapbook paper.
And there you go!
I think these would also make such great gifts!
