Mom 4 Real - Freezer Paper Stencil

Morning Everyone,

I've got a visitor today, one of my sweet girlfriends (whom I've never met but know we'd hit it off right away!).  She's visiting today with an awesome Stencil on Freezer Paper Tutorial.  Enjoy and let her know what you think, by leaving a comment below.  

Hi, I'm Jessica from Mom 4 Real!  I am so happy to be guest posting for my friend Hilani today!  I am sharing a super easy tutorial on using freezer paper to make a stencil...hope you love it!

I saw a pillow just like this one at Crate and Barrel right before Christmas, and haven't been able to get it out of my mind.  Since then, I've seen them all over the blogosphere, but had no idea how to make my own.  Last night, I decided I was going to figure it out.  If I had known it were this easy, I would have made mine much sooner!!!  All you need is freezer paper!  What?  Yup, freezer paper!  Here is how I made mine...

I used my Cricut machine to cut out my ampersand, but you can totally trace something and cut it out with an x-acto knife!  If you use your Cricut or Silhouette, you need to place the freezer paper shiny side down on your mat.

Pick out your shape and cut with your machine or by hand.

Once your shape is cut out, take the outer part off of your mat to use as your stencil.

Lay it on your fabric, and iron on...shiny side down.

Make sure all of the inner edges are ironed down well.

Use a stenciling brush and tap your paint onto your fabric.  Make sure you don't use too much paint, and work from the edges inward.

Let dry for at least 2 hours, then pull the stencil up.

That's it!  You can sew your pillow together now...but can you imagine all of the other things you can do?  I can see lots of cute, one of kind tees and bags in our future!

Thank you so much for having me, Hilani!
