Silhouette cutouts of my children

Want to be a silhouette artist? With Microsoft word, black paper, and some patience--you CAN!  I purchased Silhouette paper off of Amazon (25 sheets for less than $10).  The best way to do this is to fold the paper in half with the black side on the inside. That way you only handle the white side and the natural oils from your hands don’t mar the black silhouette side.  I used Microsoft Word’s picture formatting tools to “gray scale” the profile picture I took of my kids. I printed it out to the desired size and used this as my template to cut out the silhouettes.
