Paint these beautiful gift pouches with snowflake designs super easily using freezer paper. This project is great for kids and adults. Use either store-bought cotton bags or quickly make pouches by upcycling t-shirt sleeves.
Make a paper snowflake, cutting your design from freezer paper.
Place the paper snowflake, shiny side down, onto the fabric where you want your design to be.
Carefully run a hot iron over the paper snowflake until the paper snowflake has adhered to the fabric. (Make sure no edges are loose.)
Carefully paint around the edges and over all of the holes in the paper with fabric paint.
Once the paint has dried, carefully peel away the freezer paper.
To set the design, follow the directions for your fabric paint. In most cases, you'll need to cover the design with parchment paper and iron over it for a minute or 2.
You can now further embellish the gift pouches with heat-set rhinestones or dimensional paints.
To keep the paint from bleeding under the edges, use just enough paint on the brush and dab the areas that need painting. It's best to keep the brush in a vertical position so that you don't push the paint under the edges.This is an easy craft and can be done by older kids, resulting in a surprisingly professional effect. With a bit of help, though, even small kids can help you make these by helping you paint the fabric or by helping you embellish the pouches afterward.
