DIY silhouette: One big puff

Wavey was pretty bent out of shape when she saw Griffin's DIY silhouette and kept pestering me asking why there wasn't one for her yet. Fiiiine.



Given her crazy-curly locks, I figured a silhouette in her signature hairdo - "The Single Puff" - would memorialize it forever, and also be easier than trying to decipher around a blob of curly hair.


Same deal with the black cardstock, tracing paper and image to trace around.  I printed the photo in reverse so when the silhouette was trimmed and flipped, she would face opposite of Griffin's image when side-by-side:


To make it more girly, I added eyelashes:


The final, framed result:

Not many pics exist - but my hair is EXTREMELY curly (I flat iron every day)... I think you did the right thing with the "puff" pose cause we curlies get lost in our hair lol... they turned out fantastic!

They look great.

{I have always wished for curly hair. When I was little I would sleep with sponge curlers in my hair.}
