Big Time Rush is right! {Freezer Paper Stencil T-shirt}

The following is a reenactment of a recent series of events.

1. Tweet from a friend of mine--our daughters are also friends. 
"Please have Dolly call K." 
2. I text Dolly and pass along the message. 
3. Moments later I receive an excited phone call that she has been invited to a Big Time Rush concert (her first). Nice!
Okay, so what do you need for a concert?  Extra money (hi Mommo), cell phone (yup), camera (duh)...all those things and....a concert T-shirt!  

4. PANIC!


 That. Is.Custom.

It is at this time, that I'd like to say thank you to my husband for stopping at the craft store for t-shirts (thanks!).  And of course, Rocco helped me out here too.


I created my design on my Silhouette, and cut it out on freezer paper.  Remember to save the innards of your letters and numbers ( in my case the B, R, 8, and 0). (Like my use of innards there?)


Carefully iron onto your shirt of choice.  I cut up a couple of cereal boxes to slide inside the t-shirt to prevent the paint from bleeding through.


After painting a mixture of one part acrylic paint and two parts textile medium (check your label for instructions), I dried it with my blow dryer so I could remove the freezer paper.


I love being a hero.
