I found the idea for a terrific Christmas present for my and Pat’s parents. It was in the TOS Digital Holiday Supplement for 2009. I made silhouettes of all the kids for my parents and for Pat’s mom. Then I made a set of Wendy and Will’s for their nouna and nouno (Godparents). They turned out great and were actually fairly simple to make. I used digital scrapbooking papers for the backgrounds. Then I took photos of each kid and manipulated them in the Gimp. Then I printed a mirror image of each picture, pasted it onto heavy black cardstock, and cut them out. Once assembled, they looked great, although the pictures I got don’t do them justice!
