Freezer Paper Silhouettes

I absolutely love the way these silhouettes turned out! I made mine into pillows because I obviously needed at least three more pillows on my bed. However, I also think that they would be great framed.
Here is how to do it!
Step 1: Take a picture of your munchkin's profile. This is a bit hard to do when you have an active 9 month old. Step 2: Download your picture. I then copied mine into a word document. I wanted my picture to fit on a 8.5 by 11 in. printer paper. So, I played with the image until I got it the size I wanted it.
Step 3: Take freezer paper and cut it the size of your printer paper. Place the cut freezer paper in your printer and print your image.Step 4: Using an Exacto knife cut out your image. (For some reason this picture cracks me up!)

Step 5: Take your fabric and iron your silhouette onto it.

Step 6: Paint! You can use fabric paint or just plain old acrylic paint. Both work well.

Step 7: After the paint dries, peel off the freezer paper. This is when I made mine into pillows. But the possibilities are limitless.
