Ben had a silhouette cut for him when he visited Disneyland two summers ago. It found a place among the branches of our Christmas tree last year and I just knew I needed silhouettes for my other two, as well.
I googled "how to make a silhouette" and found tons of tutorials..some rather complicated. In the end I took profile shots of Alan and Sadie, shrunk them to the size I already had of Ben, and cut them out with the black paper behind it. I think it worked well and gave the silhouettes the "hand cut" look I wanted.
One, two and three, I just need to find frames and they can take their place in the tree too.
