Silhouettes









These are the silhouettes I have of my girls that were done 12 years ago.  I have always treasured them and visiters to my home always comment on them.

I began offering these custom silhouette papercuttings in my Etsy shop and it is going over really well.
Holiday orders are already coming in!

I've done these cuttings for family and friends and I've even sold some but this is my first time offering them on Etsy. 

I'm working on cuttings of my grandkids right now.  I'll show them once they are done.  We didn't get a good profile picture of  the baby when they were here for Halloween so that is holding up my progress.  I want to do single cuttings like these but I am also thinking about trying something with all of the kids in one frame...still working that idea out in my head.

Looks like I'll be a busy bee this holiday season!

Your silhouettes are beautiful. Lots of detail. I have ones that were done at Disneyland, not near the detail of yours, but I do treasure them!
Blessings,

Those are just beautiful! Silhouettes are hot right now. You should have no problem with selling them on Etsy.

I love these and am hoping to sometime soon be able to fit some into the family budget. I would treasure some of my 3 kids. My Mom had some done of my brothers and I when we were young.

I can't believe the paper feather you posted about. Incredible!

I was heartbroken about the passing of your dear family member. May you find comfort in memories of happy times.

Peg, your silhouettes are gorgeous! I can see why you get so many compliments on them. Thanks for your comment on my blog. Yes, indeed, time is a great healer. I have no doubt that your dad is around, and leaving tinsel for you to find! Have a very Merry Christmas!... Donna

Those are SO SWEET! I tried just taking good photos of my kids in silhouettes--limited success.
