Your New Friend Sam, Etsy Shop: Papercut and Digital Silhouettes (Give-Away Closed)

Papercut Silhouette from Your New Friend Sam on Etsy 25

One of my favorite pieces of art in our home is my husband and my papercut silhouettes from Disneyland that we had done during the 50th anniversary celebration in 2005. It’s such a classy and timeless way to preserve a moment in time.

Last fall, I started to offer my own papercut silhouettes… starting with borrowing a few of my friend’s kiddos to practice on. I just adore their little profiles especially their little noses.

These were a hit for the Christmas season, especially for the grandparents!

It’s been fun to see the variety of ways these can be personalized. Between the multiple cardstock pairings and personalization styles, each one is so unique!

    Hi! These are so cute. I was wondering what the font is that you used for the names on the dogs’ silhouettes, or the “Win a Papercut Silhouette” font with your handle and hashtag. Thanks so much!
