Kid's Silhouette Tutorial

By:

This silhouette tutorial comes to us from Catherine Peart of Gingham Cherry. Making silhouettes of the kid(s) is a great gift idea for Mother's Day or a fun way to decorate any room of the house. The look is easy to achieve but elegant.

  • Decorative backing paper
  • Black or other coloured solid paper/card for silhouette
  • Glue or double sided tape (or mounting tape if you have a shadow box frame

  3. Cut out carefully and use glue or double sided tape to adhere cutout to your decorative or plain background. If you have a shadowbox frame it is nice to use mounting tape as well.
