VERY last minute gift idea (Think GRANDPARENTS)

My parents are SO hard to buy for. So, I usually do something creative with the kid's photos every year. Here is what I did this year :

Silhouettes
SUPER EASY and SUPER CHEAP....
I think I spent a total of $6.00 (frames were on sale!)
All you need:
Printer
Photo Paper
Black Paint
Photo frames
Oh, and a side profile PHOTO of each kid.
*Have your child turn to the side and snap a photo.
Enlarge the photo (I can not remember my size dimensions but make the HEAD big enough for a 8x10 piece of photo paper)
Once you have printed your photo, Cut out the profile....
Turn it over and paint black
Allow to dry and then place it on top of another piece of Photo paper.
FRAME IT and GIVE TO GRANDMA.
She will go gaga over her new Silhouettes!!
