Merry Claire Papercrafting creates hand cut silhouettes, an old fashioned art that highlights the simple beauty of a profile. All silhouettes are based on photographs, cut to fit an 8x10 or 5x7 inch frame. When you place your order, designate your preferred size and background color.

Your silhouette will be based on a photo that you submit to jillandclaire4 [!at] msn.com or via Etsy Convo. Once I receive your photo, I will create a drawing for you, and allow you to give feedback. We can make as many changes as necessary to be certain that we are getting a true likeness! Once you approve the sketch, I will cut and mount your silhouette on archival paper, and ship it priority mail. Typical turnaround time is two weeks.

If you would like your silhouette personalized with the name and/or date, please tell me in the message box when you place your order. Font samples are in the fifth photograph.

A few tips for submitting a great photo:

1. A natural, relaxed face creates the best likeness. Consider snapping photos of toddlers while they watch a show, or sit on the lap of someone they love!
2. Please include the entire head. Especially for a baby with little hair, this can make or break the likeness. For a girl with long hair, consider a bun or pony tail so that the lines of the neck are visible.
3. Be at eye level with your subject. Looking up at them or down at them will distort what I see as I create your sketch.
