Moving along with our recycling/decorating efforts, I cut silhouettes out of milk cartons to make luminaries. My daughter picked out the images online and I cut them out using good pointy scissors. The instructions I found suggested using an exacto knife. After the first cut, I knew that was crazy and would lead to a ruined project, bloodletting, or both.
I need to test them out in the dark to see if I care enough to paint them too.
ETA: I did paint them. The cow jumping over the cat bugged me, lol.
