RTT - freezer paper stencil


I know a TON of you out there have already tried this out, but this was my first attempt and I wanted to share. There are several tutorials out there,
here are just a few:

For this shirt, I drew my own cherry blossom branch on the freezer paper and cut it out with an exacto knife. The flowers were punched from my friend's Cricut. I think it turned out pretty cute! I guess if I want Bryn to wear it soon, I'll have to put a long sleeve shirt underneath...it is getting cold here!
What fun ideas have you done with freezer paper???

I love your shirt! And I love using freezer paper! I have made three shirts with it now. Here is a link to the first one I did. It's a guitar for my hubby!

Thanks for the idea ! I bought my fabric paints today at Jo-Anne's for 50% off. I hope I can do the same way you did. I'm so excited..
