I have 3 boys and I'd like to make each of them a Zombie Response Team T shirt.  Can I use the same stencil for all 3 or will I have to cut out the words three times and make three stencils?  How much cutting I have to do will determine whether or not I tackle this project for Christmas.

For freezer paper you can only stick them down once. If you want to make one to use three times you could try contact paper (the stuff you line your shelves with). The stickiness will wear down with each use but it should hold for three uses. Or you can cut a stencil out of velum or a projector sheet to use multiple times. They wont have a sticky back so you'd have to tape it down and be extra careful to not move the stencil around while applying the paint.

Thanks for the tips!  I might have to give the contact paper a try.

I used some freezer paper just today, and I stuck it down twice (ironing it down again the second time). It didn't stick quite as well the second time, and I had to take more care painting the stencil, but it did work.
