|Inspiration silhouette - cute, but kinda plain!|
First we went to Michaels (best store ever!!) and picked up the following:
- 10x10 black picture frames
- plain black 12x12 cardstock (or scrapbooking paper)
- a large assortment of 12x12 printed scrapbooking paper to match our home decor
- a quality x-acto knife
- and a glue stick!
Next, we cut the photo silhouette out using the x-acto knife, and then traced the outline only on the black cardstock with pencil.
Then we VERY CAREFULLY cut out the silhouette - ensuring that no mistakes we made!
We then just glued the black silhouette to the fun and colorful paper, and we added silver embossed letter stickers of each dogs initials right below the silhouettes.
Lastly, we cut down each one to fit the 10x10 frame
...and voila! Custom framed silhouettes of my amazing pups!!!!!
|All done and hung in Heidi's bedroom!|
|and... just in case you aren't familiar with my dogs (and how incredibly cute they are!!!)|
