Darci's silhouette art is also great entertainment. She hand cuts Her silhouettes on the spot without any pre-drawing. The guest's silhouette is put in a beveled edge mat board black frame and is placed in two bags: first a cellophane sleeve/bag and second a translucent white gift bag.
When She cuts the silhouettes, Darci cuts out two at a time. The first goes to the guest and the second silhouette is for you for an album that she provides. Darci brings an assortment of colored pens and the guests are encouraged to write a personal message next to the silhouette in this special keepsake album.
