fun with freezer paper

I've been dying to try freezer paper tenciling for a while now. Here's a look at my first attempt (which was a birthday present for my brother-- a proud new papa):

Step 1: trace your pattern onto freezer paper and cut out with an exacto-knife.

Step 2: Iron the freezer paper onto your tee (plasticky side down).

Step 3: Paint

Step 4: Peel off the freezer paper and feel pretty darn cool.

What is freezer paper?That is really cool though!

Alissa, Freezer paper is a plastic-backed paper you can find in the grocery store near the waxed paper and plastic wrap. When you iron it onto a t-shirt, the plastic side will melt and stick to the fabric, but it will peel off without leaving a residue. Perfect for stenciling!

I love freezer paper!! Did you know you can print right onto the paper? I have to do it that way, otherwise I always mess it up. :)
