Yeah, for freezer paper stencils, I'd use the already existing tutorial.  Basically to get the image onto the computer and print it, I just took a picture of what she drew and loaded it from my memory card into Paint.  I erased the background so I wouldn't be wasting ink - but you wouldn't even have to do that.  If it's on paper, I would suggest scanning it in if you have a scanner - it creates a clearer image. 
Get your image and words (if any) to where you want them for your project and then follow the directions in the other tutorial.

I splurged and bought a package of 8x10 sheets of freezer paper at a quilting store.  I had a discount so it turned out to be cheaper anyway.  It's less expensive to buy a roll of freezer paper but I had trouble with getting it to go through my printer sometimes.  It kept jamming unless I had a full sheet cut out.  Now I use my roll of freezer paper for things I can draw or write directly onto it. 
Actually, that's another option - just have the kids draw directly onto the freezer paper and cut out from there.

Baby number four is here and he's a boy!!  Time to start using all the great stuff I got from a bunch of Craftster friends:

This is so wonderful!  What a great idea... I am bookmarking it for when my nephew is old enough to draw.  Great job!
