I have been wanting to do this easy and inexpensive project for about a year now and finally tackled it today! All in all it cost me $.10 out of pocket (1 sheet of black paper) to make these two ADORABLE silhouettes of my doggies, Piper and Sophie!
I first found a digital picture that showed their full bodies from the side. Using the draft setting on my printer I printed a 3x5 size of the picture onto basic white computer paper. Using VERY sharp scissors I cut out the picture to reveal the dog form. From there I traced the picture onto a black piece of card stock. Using frames I already owned I simply glued the silhouette onto white card stock and popped into the frame. Presto...a piece of art I will treasure for years to come!
