Start by taking two photos of yourself, one portrait and one profile. Camera should be at eye level.
photo editor
With some quick help from almost any photo editing software, you can doctor the picture to fit your specifications.

Step 2

Prepare Your Head

Print and laminate the photo. We actually used clear packing tape that worked just as well. The plastic prevents water from permeating the picture.
