DIY Silhouettes

I've always loved silhouettes. They are just so classic and timeless. Recently, I had seen some DIY silhouettes using photo shop and wanted to give it a try. Unfortunately, I don't have photo shop and I couldn't figure out how to do what I wanted using Iphoto. So, I went old school to get this end result...
I took the following two pictures and had them printed to 5 x 7 size. From there I cut out their silhouettes. Then I traced the pictures on to black paper and then cut again. I put the black silhouettes against some craft paper from Hobby Lobby and put them in 8 x 10 frames. Total cost for my project was around $15.
