Wedding Silhouettes

I made these silhouettes of my hubby and I on our wedding day several months ago. It was super easy to create! I don't have a picture tutorial for you but I do have a how-to!

They were buried in a box from the move and David just dug them out today and put them up for me. Isn't he sweet?

To make these I used:
  • plain white printer paper
  • pretty scrapbook paper
  • matching frames
  • printer
  • tape
  • pencil

First, I found profile pictures (not like on Facebook, like the sides of our faces) of my hubby and I on our wedding day. I cropped them and resized them to fit the frame I was using (5x7) and printed each picture out. I taped each onto a bright window, then taped another piece of plain white printer paper on top to trace. I carefully traced around each of our heads and then even more carefully cut each out (looking back I should have used a nicer paper...but honestly I like them the way they are. :) I glued each onto some pretty scrapbook paper cut to the size of the frame and that was it! Super easy, super quick, and a really nice addition to my fancy shelf. :)

If there are any questions I can redo the project and take pictures to go along, so just let me know!

Happy crafting!

Very pretty. I've made a few of my kids but I never thought to do one of me and my hubby. I like the idea of a wedding day picture.
