great thrifty sentimental grandparent gift!

I just made the coolest present for my mom, and it was SO easy:

I saw it on a tut here, I think in the craft chat. You just take profile pix of your kids, print them out on heavy white paper, cut out the image, and glue it face down on black construction or other decorative paper! And you can take a picture of it and then have as many as you like, if you don't want to cut out more than one! And you can reverse the colors of the picture, so you can have traditional black cutouts on white if you want!

Very cool! I was hoping to do this for myself. I want to do mine in black then put them in a black frame with a white mat.

Re: great thrifty sentimental grandparent gift!

I found the link to the tutorial. It was in the thrifty forum, not craft chat. It's really good.
