That's not stupid.  Sometimes it can be really hard to get one's head around that sort of thing! 

To answer your question, the part that is black is what I cut away.  In other words, I had two separate sheets of freezer paper for each design.  One just had a big cupcake-shaped hole in the middle of a sheet of freezer paper.  The other one was the "body" of the cupcake (the pink part inside the black border) with the facial features cut out.  Does that make sense?  It isn't quite that easy with more intricate designs, but it worked perfectly for me here.

Thanks for all the nice compliments.  You guys have made my day.

These were my first attempt at stenciling, but I am now officially addicted!  I think freezer paper just might be man's greatest achievement.

I always get so paranoid when I make something as a gift, but now I'm feeling better about it!  I put these in the mail to my friend a couple of days ago, so I can't wait for her response.

I'm sure there are many tutorials out there that explain it way better than I ever could, but I will be happy to throw something together when I get off work.

LOVE these, they make me smile!

May I ask where you got the towels? I want to do something like this for some friends, but I can't find anything like this for an afforable price. Towels to craft on should not be so expensive!

I'm still in the market for some better ones myself.  These are flour sack towels that came from Target.  They have 6-packs of plain white ones for, I think, $7.  I dyed these pink, and they took the dye really well.  Target also had a 6-pack of various colors for the same price.  I got a pack of those too, and three of them have already been stenciled!  They are 30x30 inches, which I thought would be too big for what I wanted.  However, they shrink *a lot* when you wash them.  They are also very wrinkly--no matter how much you iron them.  For some reason, the colored ones seem to wrinkle less...like maybe they are made from a thicker fabric?  Anyway, I never go to Wal-Mart but I would assume they have them there too (and they're probably cheaper).  Oh, and I did see some at Bed Bath & Beyond, but they were much more expensive.
