Metamorphosis Monday: Doggie Silhouettes




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!

I'm joining Metamorphosis Monday over at Between Naps on the Porch.  Click here to check out all of the wonderful projects bloggers have been working on!
