Gifts for Grands

12.15.12

This Christmas is going to be extra special since it is the first year we have a little one to celebrate with.  I have always really enjoyed making gifts for family and friends for holidays, but multiply that by 1,000 now that Bennett is here.  I scoured the internet and pinterest looking for ornament ideas to give to B&#39s grandparents, but I didn&#39t find any that I loved.  Instead I decided to make a silhouette versus a hand print, so I took some picture of him to get his profile…(not an easy feat, I should note).  This was the best one I got:

I imported it into Illustrator, and used the pen tool to outline his sweet face.  Then I designed the text around it to come up with these.
