A custom silhouette paper portrait is a classic gift that will be cherished for years. The one I had made of my son melts my heart every time I glance at it.

It used to be you had to visit a silhouette artist in person, but these days you can simply email a photograph and receive your beautiful custom silhouette in the mail. Easy peasy!

You can have custom silhouette paper portraits made of children, adults and pets, either upper body or full body. They can also be done of siblings and couples. A silhouette of a couple makes for a lovely wedding or Valentine’s Day present.

Some people call silhouettes “portraits of the soul” because they omit skin color, hair color and eye color and leave only the basic essence of a person for a viewer to recognize.silhouette

You can find several hand-cut silhouette artists on Etsy.com. One of my favorites is the PaperPortraits shop.

Silhouette paper portraits contain both heart and soul.
