Freezer Paper = Cheap Advertising

Thursday, October 11, 2012 Aimee Larsen 2 Comments

I am cheap, everyone knows it... but I am also thrifty and crafty.
I purchased a shirt online the other day and paid $18.95 with shipping for a similar shirt seen above.

I am going to a conference this weekend called Ladies Alive for Advocare and I wanted a shirt!  Honestly, I needed a shirt.  So, I had this bright idea to try the freezer paper technique to make my own.

I printed out the logo from our selection of logos that we can use for advertising, laid a piece of freezer paper on top matte side up and using an exacto knife, I cut out the design.  I then ironed the freezer paper, including all the letters onto the shirt.  I painted with fabric paint and immediately lifted the freezer paper off.  I almost did a back flip in my kitchen!

So, for the price of paint, freezer paper and shirts I already own I can make my own shirts.
My son also got in on the action and created a few shirts.  He wore one to school this morning!  We have a new obsession.

You can do this for your business, school, sports teams, etc...  A friend of mine owns a Silhouette to cut designs and was super excited to see this.  I might need to by a Silhouette.
