Printing with Freezer Paper Stencils

Page 2 of 2

Materials:
The image you want to print
Freezer paper - I bought mine at Safeway, about $7
Scissors, or an X-acto knife
A cutting mat - if using the X-acto knife
An iron
A piece of non-stretchy fabric to print on - natural fibers are best
Fabric paint - Or Martha Stewart's multi-purpose paint
Paint sponges

Method:
First cut out the images you want to print. Place your freezer paper on top of the image and tape them together so they don't move about. You can also trace the image before cutting it. Make sure the plastic coating is on the back - facing away from you.

Cut out the image(s).
