Studio DaphNat - Freezer Paper Stenciling

A long time passed since the last Studio DaphNat... we both are busy for this "episode" we chose a really easy technique: Freezer Paper Stenciling.
For those of you who don't know what a stencil is, read this wikipedia page.
The only thing you need actually is freezer paper (I bought mine online in this quiltshop). Most of the times freezer paper is used in combination with fabric; you can make your own prints on a t-shirt using fabric paint, or you can iron some fabric onto the shiny side of the freezer paper and put it through your inkjet printer, printing directly onto the fabric.
Just one product; lots of possibilities!

Nat and I just limited ourselves this weekend to just cutting out the stencils.
I googled some free stencils and printed them on the dull side of the freezer paper. I also used some punches to make a stencil with a repetitive pattern.
I think the photo's speak for themselves. Let me know if you have any questions if you want to try this technique yourself and get stuck.

Check back later this week to see our projects made with the stencils and of course check out Nat's stencils by clicking HERE!

Enjoy your week!!
