I {heart} silhouettes

I've been thinking a lot of silhouettes these days and how it would be cool to make one of each Gravy Kid.

I'm not opposed those who create them in Photoshop, or crazy enough to do the whole stand-in-front-of-a-light-bulb-and-trace-on-a-wall way, but that'll never happen with two kids under age five.  Instead, I'd prefer to half-fake my way through the project by using a digital image as a pattern.

Design*Sponge featured great tutorial on creating your own silhouette by tracing and cutting, and The Vintage Farm has a version where you cut out a photo and then paint the back (clever!).

These would make great Mother's Day gifts!

Oh neat idea. My word verification is "sperm"?? Thought that was odd-what kid of operation are you running here.

Holly - HA! Of course it had to be you to be given "sperm" for a safety word. :)
