Freezer paper stencil tutorial

I'm almost embarrassed to post this tutorial because the pictures are horrible (and I don't have the energy to color correct them) and the outcome was not so great. My first go round looked good but due to my poor x-acto cutting skills this one didn't turn out so cute.

Step 1
Gather your tools - freezer paper (I got it at the hardware store but you may be able to find it at a large grocery store), fabric paint, a cutting mat, x-acto knife and whatever you want to print on.

Step 2
Design and print the graphic you'd like to stencil. Trace the graphic on the paper side of the freezer paper and cut it out the black portions with an x-acto knife.

Step 3
Iron the freezer paper onto the shirt (wax side down) and paint.

Step 4
Let it dry for several hours then pull the paper off.

And one more NOT wear your favorite J.Crew white painter tee. Splatterd red fabric paint will not come off :-(
