I have seen many craft/stationery blogs use silhouettes lately. They’re nothing new, but seem to be popular right now.

I decided to make my own. I won’t bore you with the process, but Photoshop made quick work of the project. I printed out the headshots, traced them onto some thin craft balsa wood and then simply cut the silhouettes out.

I think I will get some new frames and backing paper, but they seemed to have turned out pretty well.

For something more impressive, check out Jenny Lee Fowler’s silhouettes shaped from leaves on Etsy. Yeah, I know. Go now! Also, here are some instructions for a way to do it if you do not have Photoshop.
