5 Minute Silhouettes: The Disney Version

The {finished} craft hutch was begging for a little art, 
and when I stumbled upon this, inspiration struck.

A quick google image search found just what I wanted, and it got cropped and printed.
Blowing it up to a bigger size makes it blurry and pixelated, but no need to be discouraged -
the basic shape is all we're after.

Here's the part where somebody tells me there are fancy machines 
that can cut this kind of stuff, but those are for people who have lots of extra money.
For the rest of us scissors work just fine, especially if you make the tail a bit thicker (doh!)
and thereby easier to cut.

You can totally skip a step and use black cardstock but 1. I didn't have any and 2. plain computer paper is so much easier to cut intricate shapes because it's thinner and 3. I didn't have any.

Glued on to a piece of paper and stuck in a cheap dollar store frame from the closet, it's a great reminder for my anxiety prone, easily overwhelmed self to Ha-kuna Ma-tata, Ha-kuna Ma-tata.

  1. how come the paper didn't curl when you had it wet?

  2. The paint is thick enough that curling isn't usually a problem. The super thin parts curled ever so slightly this time, but once you put it under a frame, the glass smooshes everything down - problem solved.

  5. Very cool. Yes there are machines for that and I have one of them, BUT you also would have to have the cartridge and they can be pretty expensive. I think you did a great job!
