Pinch Proof T-Shirt
Freezer paper stencils are an easy way to make cute t-shirts. With St Patrick’s Day right around the corner we thought we would use this fun technique to give us some special protection!
Freezer Paper Stencil Tutorial
Draw design on paper side of the freezer paper, shiny side of freezer paper facing down. I have included the template I used. I cut the stencil with my Silhouette Cutter, but an exacto knife works also.
Iron freezer paper shiny side down onto t-shirt. This doesn’t take much —about 30 seconds on medium heat. Check to make sure freezer paper is completely adhered to the shirt. Don’t forget to also iron the center parts into the letters. Notice I forgot the center of the first letter p.
Apply paint to stencil and sprinkle wet paint with Glamour Dust. I was glamming up the shamrocks, but wish I had sprinkled it on the whole stencil. This stuff is so cool and gives such a professional finish!
Flip over and remove extra Glamour Dust. Remove stencil.
Allow paint to dry 48 hours (only 24 is necessary if only using paint and not Glamour Dust), then heat set the paint by ironing over design for 30 seconds on medium heat.
No pinching allowed!
