Haha I think freezer costs about the same as wax paper, if not...it's still pretty cheap.

you know what, I went to walmart for freezer paper and they had no idea what to give me. "Wax paper?" "No, it's called freezer paper, its only waxy on one side." "No, you see, wax paper has wax on TWO sides..." "I know, thats why I want the freezer paper!" "....We have freezer bags..."  Angry
I can't believe them. But I think today I'll try a regular grocery store.  Smiley

HAHA!  I probably should've said that they don't have freezer paper at Walmart...I tried my Walmart and they didn't have it, either.

GO TO THE GROCERY STORE FOR FREEZER PAPER!

There, I said it haha.  Cheesy

Ooh Ooh I have a question! Does the stencil paper go ON TOP of the wax paper or UNDER the wax paper before cutting the stencil out? And how do you keep the two together? Doesn't the freezer paper and stencil kinda shift when you use the exacto knife to cut the stencil out? I think this is my biggest problem to date. I hate when stencils are all complicated and not just one simple shape, its gets so frustrating when they move around Huh  Cry

You put the stencil ON TOP of the freezer paper, and tape it on so it doesn't shift.   Cool

FWIW, my local Wal-Mart does carry freezer paper, although they have only one kind.  Reynolds Freezer Paper in a 150 sq. feet roll.  It costs $5.04 here, but W-M prices can vary by location.

I'm looking foward to trying this idea out.  Even if it turns out I don't like stenciling with the freezer paper, the box lists other craft uses, and there's always freezing stuff in it, I guess.

Sometimes I don't make anything but a mess.

I know it's a bit old, but I thought I'd toss in my two cents:

I make all my stencils with freezer paper. However, I'm always worried that the print-out will move (or that I just won't be able to get fine lines while cutting through 2 pieces of paper), so I use a trick from art class:

Take your print-out or drawing. Flip it over. Scribble all over the back with a pencil. (Not really the whole back- just the part where the design is.) Flip it over and tape it pencil-scribble-side-down on the freezer paper. Trace over the design with a ball-point pen. (Anything a bit pointy, really- I've even used a chopstick.) This will push the pencil graphite onto the freezer paper. Remove the print-out and cut out your design.

I find this helps a lot if you do small, intricate designs, like lettering. It also means that if you mess up (your knife slips, you want to change the design, etc.) that you haven't ruined your print-out (or original drawing, which is much worse), and that you can erase on the freezer paper if you need to change something.

I believe you can do this with contact paper (rather than freezer paper), too. I used it in art class for glass etching.
