I've always loved vintage cut paper silhouettes, so last night I decided to make mini ones of me and Jesse. And, yeah, I apologize in advance to any possible future spawn of ours - you're going to have a big nose, kid.

To make these, I just drew on the back of a piece of gold card stock while looking at photos of us in profile, then cut along the lines with a pair of small scissors. I used an x-acto knife for the tiny interior slits. To make it even easier, you could just print out a profile photo on the back side of a piece of card stock and then cut around it.

Stay Gold, Ponyboy
