Ok, so the DH is a World of Warcraft freak. He is really hard to craft for so I thought I would stencil some shirts for him for Christmas. I bought these two singlets - black and olive green - for a ridiculously low price (it's summer here so we need all the cool clothes we can get) and tried my hand for the first time at making a stencil from the paper wrapper around the computer paper. I believe this is a freebie version of freezer paper. I resued the same stencil for each shirt.

The stencil was pretty time consuming and considering how well it turned out I kinda wish I'd made it bigger. But I LOVE the way you iron on the stencil, paint and then peel off. Soooo much easier than using spray adhesive and I can't use my screen cause I'm using the thick fabric paint in the squeezy bottles.

Olive green with black stencil:


Black with metallic blue and metallic green blended into the centre (can't really see the colour change - bummer):


And while I was at it, I made myself a stamp out of craft foam and mounted it on a piece of board (those cheap craft wood coasters and placemats are so perfect for this). I am going to use it to stamp my husband's Christmas wrapping paper, I always use plain brown paper and stamp Christmassy things on it and then use a bit of regular wrapping paper to accent - cheap, paper is thicker than wrapping paper, and I can customise to my heart's desire.

Print on left, stamp on right:


I really want to recreate the priest stencil on the Jinx website but I think it might be a bit too ambitious Undecided.

Great projects!
I'm really amazed how much detail you were able to get with the stencil.

I know a WoW addict and these would be perfect for him. Unfortunately I don't have enough time for the tee-shirt, but maybe the gift wrap. Though I might end up stamping and wrapping on Christmas Eve.

Thanks Synchronicity01. I was really pleased with how well the paper held up, it's thicker than computer paper so it accepts more detailed stencils. Plus I used a brand new blade.

The stamp was really quick, i just taped the printed image onto the foam sheet and cut it out from there. Then glue onto a scrap of wood and viola!
