But I really hate to see all those magazines go to waste, so I decided to take a few home. And after Pinteresting and Google-ing , I’ve come up with this super easy, but very cute craft!
So as I've mentioned before, I love orcas, and I thought this silhouette would be a fun craft to hang up by my bed!
What you need:
I googled orca silhouettes and free handed the outline on a white piece of paper. Then I taped that piece to a piece of card stock and cut it out. And since the orca has the signature white belly and eye patch, I also cut out card stock outlines of those too.
I ripped out colored ads from the magazine and cut them into small strips and taped two inch sections together. (The colored ads are for the black parts of the orca and then I used white text pages for their white spots.) I also cut the two inch wide sections in half to double the width because the orca silhouette is not very tall.
After you have the width of magazine strips you need, tape the back of the magazine strips to your card stock outline. Then cut around the outline. After you've finished, you can either pull the outline off or use it as support. If you have multiple outlines (for example, the white parts of the orca) then repeat step three for those and arrange them accordingly.
Find a canvas or background for your new animal silhouette and glue/tape it on.
And your done!! See how simple?
