The High King Lives

Crafty Monday: Lemony Snicket Inspired Silhouette January 12, 2015

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
