I am still getting the hang of this blogging thing, but I thought I would try my hand at posting my new creations. For Christmas this year, I was trying to come up with some chic, cheap, and personal gifts for my family. Since silhouettes seem to be all the rage nowadays, I thought they would make a great gift for my sisters of their sweet little families and their kids. I have tried different methods with little success. I had the brilliant idea that I wanted to use pretty scrapbook paper instead of the usual black construction paper. I have to admit, my journey to get here has been very stressful! I tried one method after another. I scanned Pinterest for inspiration. I googled. Still, I had trouble. THEN, while laying awake this morning (I do a lot of my best thinking while the children are still in bed) I came up with this plan! It worked brilliantly! I hope you can find it helpful too!
