Cardboard.
Red, blue, black Tulip brand soft fabric paint.

Freezer paper.
Exacto knife.
Iron (without water)
Printed images sized to preference.
Marker.
Fine tipped paint brush.

——————————

1) Using marker, trace designs onto freezer paper (rough side. Make sure the shiny side is facing down)

2) Carefully cut out design with Exacto knife, making sure to save the little pieces for the middle of letters etc.

3) Iron (medium high setting depending on iron) stencil shiny side down. Carefully iron the little pieces for the middle of letters etc.

4) Make sure cardboard is inside shirt to prevent paint from bleeding onto the back of shirt. Using foam brushes, carefully dab paint int appropriate areas. Red for the star, blue for the wings, and black for the letters. Make sure not to overlap colors into the wrong shapes.

5) Once paint is mostly dry (not all the way dry) carefully remove freezer paper from shirt (it will peel up like sticker paper). Use the tip of the Exacto knife to carefully remove the little inside bits.

6) Look and touch up any spots that may need more paint with fine tipped brush and let dry completely.

7) Optional: using stong glue (E6000) adhere craft gems to desired spots.
