Spray Paint Stenciling

Thumbelina has a birthday party to go to for a boy in her class. And while I have a million girl present ideas, boy ideas are hard for me. The invitation was a Mario Bros one, so I went off of that. I found a Mario keychain on super clearance a while back, so I decided to pair that with a Mario shirt he could wear. I printed off a picture, and spent some quality time with my craft knife. So much time, however, that hubby told me, (and I quote) "we need to get you one of those cutter machines that you want---how much are they?" Anyway, after about a hour with the freezer paper, craft knife and iron, I had it ready...but I was too tired to find my fabric paint. So I took it outside and spray painted it:

And after all that cutting, I couldn't bear to throw away the part of the stencil I didn't use---so Thumbelina got a shirt too:
Thumbelina loves her shirt and I hope her friend likes his too. I also got a Cars puzzle, Cars Pez, and a magnifying glass to throw in the bag with the shirt and keychain.

Now that is done and I am so excited that hubby is finally onboard with the Silhouette!!!
