DIY Thursday: Paper Silhouettes

I found this project at Craftynest, via design*sponge, here.

Here are the full instructions by Monica Ewing of Craftynest, who made these beautiful paper silhouettes:

"This was a simple, inexpensive project. I thought it would be sweet to have silhouettes of my daughter hanging on her wall but found it impossible to keep her still long enough to trace her outline. I settled on this solution. I found these simple frames at a dollar store. The entire project cost less than $10, but it adds a personal touch to her room. Here’s how to do it:
Supplies and tools
scrapbook paper
glue stick
white card stock
double-sided tape
printer or photo copier
1. Search your photo collection to find images that are profile or silhouette shots. Copy or print them as large as possible on an 8-1/2- x 11-inches sheet of paper.
2. Tape the photo page and scrapbook paper back-to-back then cut out around shape of the child in the photo.
3. Glue the silhouettes onto white card stock and frame them.
