Christmas Silhouette

Don't forget to enter my giveaway!

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


This was a very simple project that took about 5 minutes. I used this image (used google images and typed in wisemen silhouettes). I copied and pasted it into a word document. I added the quote (Love this quote) and sized it to fit a 5x7 frame. I printed it off, cut it out and framed. The part that took the longest was choosing an image.

Variations:
1)If you don't want to use a lot of ink you can trace your image directly from your screen and cut it out of black paper (that same way I made my Halloween one). It would also give it more dimension.
2)Print it on Christmas pattern paper or any color to give it a fun look (wish I would have done that)
3)use black paper for the back and cut your silhouette and words out of white paper. This would give it a pretty reversed look.



I am adding this to Blue Eyed Blessings Craft Challenge and Somewhat Simple's Strut your stuff. Head to their blogs for more great ideas.
