Today my friend Sara is joining me to show you how to make these cute t-shirts using freezer paper and a Silhouette Cameo 2. These are simple and fun to make. You could easily do this with a Cricut machine as well, but you’d need to use different settings as the two cutting machines differ in how their settings are inputted.

Using freezer paper as a stencil is a great way to customize a shirt.
Step 2: Load the cut mat back into the Silhouette machine and use the same settings to cut your shirt design.
Step 3: Very carefully peel off your freezer paper. A less sticky mat is ideal for this so your freezer paper doesn’t rip when you remove it. Make sure to remove the center of your A’s, O’s etc. so you can add them to your stencil. It’s a bit tedious.
Step 4: Iron on the main stencil. Once you’re done that, you can add all of the centers for your letters (the inside of the Os, etc). Press those as well.
Step 5: Use your sponge paint brush to dab on paint. You may want to do a couple of layers of thinner paint rather than using a lot of paint in the first go.
Step 6: Once dry, you’ll remove your stencil, include the centers from your letters. Tweezers work well for the space pieces.
I had to do some research for this post. This post was inspired by the following blog posts: Silhouette School Freezer Paper Stencils.
