One of my favorite stores is The Paper Source in Oak Park, IL. Ever since my art student days, I would buy beautiful printed paper and decorate books, make books, or other crafts. I saw this adorable project for a silhouette portrait, using decorative paper decoupaged on top of a frame.
I put my own twist on this project, by decoupaging precut oval mat board. Further, I used my handy iPhone to take pictures of the kids, and printed the images out on 8.5"x11" paper. I cut this image out, and used it as a template to trace their faces onto black card stock.
This project turned out adorable, and would make a great grandparent gift.
