I've been dying to try Reynold's Freezer Paper but it's been a little difficult to track down. My mom finally found me a roll this week and it did not dissapoint! Freezer Paper works as a stencil. You cut your design out and iron the paper onto the fabric. It seals all the edges so your paint goes on nicely and it peels off so cleanly, you would never know it was there!
We're going down to LA to visit my sister who just joined a sorority so
I wanted to bring her a few new things!
I used my Silhoeutte to cut out "Alpha Gamma Delta" and ironed it on to the front. However, if you don't have a cutting machine I saw a great tutorial recently where she used graphics printed from Word and an exacto knife to cut out the shapes.
Once the outline was done, I placed the little pieces (the inside of the A's, P, and D).
I made sure not to move it too much once I had ironed it on, I didn't want the stencil to come loose so I just painted right on the ironing board. I used her sorority's colors to fill in the words.
I only had to wait about 10 minutes for it to dry before I could pull off the stencil. I made two of these bags, one for my sister and one for her 'big sis' in sorority. Because I love personalization, I added some more lettering to the side of the bag with black paint.
I love how they turned out and I hope the girls like them too!
I also personalized a few more things for her!
Their mascot is the squirrel, so when my mom dug this guy out of storage I couldn't help but make him a shirt!
Thanks for stopping by!!
