Hello! Today I tried making freezer paper stencils for the first time and, omg, how have I lived this long without them?! Freezer paper is amazing! I brought a huge roll and so now I'm excited for more stencil projects ^_^
I made these tote bags for Laura and Carina, who are doing the Graduate Program at my work. They are both very cool, and I don't think either of them read my blog so hopefully they won't see these before I give them to them on Monday. They both say "totes" a lot (i.e. "they are totes profesh") so I thought this design was appropriate ...
Here's an awesome thing I love about freezer paper: I cut out one design and got two stencils! Wicked!
For the green design I ironed down the letters that I cut out from the freezer paper and then just painted over everything in a planned but trying to look haphazard kinda way ~_^
And for the pink design I used the outline of the letters that were left over. To make this look a little different I left out the inside parts of the "o" and the "e" and also cut out some retro looking stars. The font I used was Fabulous 50's and although it's the same basic design for both bags, I like that they both turned out quite different ^_^
Yay! I think I need to make one for me now too! ^_^
Do you like them? What would you make a stencil of?
