one of a kind

i love unique portraits of people, and none is more unique, or one of a kind, than these cut out fingerprint portraits. this would be a seriously fun project to do at home if you have an ink pad, scanner/printer, and fresh x-acto knife.

simply take the fingerprints needed, scan them in, enlarge them to the size you need and print. if you want a super clean print, flip the image before printing and cut on the side with smudged lines. then flip the paper over once your done for a clean surface and properly facing print. i think i'll be making these for the mister and i this year - how about you?
