On a recent consignment store trip, I found a plain white t-shirt for Pinkerbelle for $1. It was fine, but it was a perfect candidate for some embellishment. I decided to do some freezer paper stenciling; it’s quick and easy and I hadn’t done any in a while.
I chose to do the totally trendy cupcake and free-handed a design (I did look at images online and based it on some of those). Feel free to enlarge and use this image if you like.
I wanted to put a caption underneath and asked P. what she wanted it to say; she immediately said “sweet”. My crafty cutter is an old fashioned model called “x-acto”. It’s a little more labor-intensive than the newer models, but effective nontheless.
I used metallic gold fabric paint for the cupcake wrapper and pulled a toothpick through it to create the lines. Dimensional fabric paint was perfect for the sprinkles.
It’s always a little bit thrilling to pull off the freezer paper and see the result.
I let P. try it on before she went to bed. She loves it, but she was being a goofball for the camera.
