You may remember a post several months ago which explained how you can create paper versions of your friends to take out on the town with you when you can’t all be together in real life. My sisters and I began making flat friends the last time that we got 3 out of 4 of us together for a big fun time. We really were sad that Caity, our youngest sister, couldn’t be there to share in our good times. We McNally girls are big on making lemonade out of lemons if you know what I mean, so we created “Flat Caitlin” from paper and popsicle sticks, and took her with us throughout the day (and night’s) shenanigans.
My sister, Heather, just moved to Austin, Texas. I helped her move, so I’m here for a few more days. Sarah, another sister, is arriving tonight, just in time to grab dinner and hit a Camera Obscura concert. Fun times are definitely going to be had, but how can our joviality be complete when we are missing one sister? That’s right. It’s Flat Friend time.
We decided to go with a new photo this time. Mix things up, you know? Keep it fresh.
Unfortunately, this photo mostly just shows her head, and we really need a good portion of body in order to get the Flat Friend just right. Plus, we need somewhere to stick the popsicle stick. Not a problem though, with the wonders of Photo Shop, we can easily create the facade of a torso. Just a few clicks of the mouse, and VIOLA!
Isn’t digital imagery amazing? Now to print her out, attach her to a stick, and hit the town! Yippee Kai Yay, Texas!
Update: Here are some photos of the fun we had with Flat Caitlin in Austin
