Crafty Monday: Lemony Snicket Inspired Silhouette

Hello dear ones! Michael is reading the “A Series of Unfortunate Events” books by Lemony Snicket. Our last craft for the week was inspired by a Lemony Snicket quote and a scene from the movie based on the books.

In the movie, the Baudelaire orphans make a tent in Count Olaf’s dismal attic. They hang up their parents’ pictures and it makes a silhouette of the whole family. It gives the feeling that the parents are looking over their kids. I believe there is mention of it being a sanctuary and this quote:

“Sanctuary, a word which here means ‘a small safe place in a troubling world'” ~Lemony Snicket

I just love that. So Michael and I made our own family silhouette picture and used that quote.

I took our profile pictures and then printed them out. Michael traced the pictures onto colorful construction paper. Then he cut out the silhouettes.


I glued the pictures to Acryllic paper and wrote the quote. Then I modge podged it. You can see how shiny it is when the flash is on. I hope you’re inspired :).


I just have to show you this sweet card Michael and his friends made me.



Well, God bless & remember the High King lives! ~Amber Dover
