Freezer paper stencil

Personalise your packaging using a freezer paper stencil
Freezer paper can be bought online or in most craft stores, it has a waxy coating on one side which allows you fix the stencil in place by ironing it
Buy this box at my etsy shop 
What you need:
Freezer paper
Paint brush
Test you paint on an inconspicuous area first to check it doesn’t bleed too much, thicker paint works better than runny/watery paint
Cut out your design using scissors or make it even simpler and buy a pretty punch to use instead
Using an iron on a low heat, fix you stencil, wax side down to your packaging
Paint your stencil
Top tip - only use a small amount of paint to prevent any bleeding under the stencil, if the effect isn’t dark enough apply multiple coats, waiting for the paint to dry between coats
Allow to dry before peeling off the freezer paper
