Okay. People keep telling me that when I stencil, I should use freezer paper. This is the stupid part. Do I actually freeze it, or just use it alone? How should I attach it to the fabric?

you dont have to freeze it...you cut the stencil out on the side thats not waxy...and when youre ready to stencil you place it on the shirt and iron it with the waxy side down on the shirt and the non waxy side facing you

Do you already have freezer paper?  You can get it at most grocery stores. I like Reynolds Freezer Paper.  It's just like wax paper only it only has wax on one side.  So you trace your design onto the paper side and cut it out with an exacto knife.  Then iron it to the fabric (wax side down) , paint the fabric paint (or spray paint) on and peel the freezer paper off!   It's good because then the stencil wont move while youre painting.  It's called freezer paper because it's actually meant to be used to wrap hamburger patties and such in...i assume to put them in the freezer, lol.

Good luck stenciling!
