Contact Paper Screen Printing DIY

I had the neat idea the other day to use contact paper as a stencil for screen printing, and I decided to make it a tutorial to share with you guys! : )
Supplies: Contact Paper, Paint and Paint Brushes, Craft knife or Die Cut Machine
[Your paint doesn't have to be an expensive one. I used some cheap stuff from walmart and it works fine!)

Step 1. Cut your design out in your contact paper. I used my Cricut, But if you don't have a die-cut machine, you can easily cut it out with a craft knife! :)
step 2. Stick your contact paper onto your fabric, rub it and make sure its stuck good!
step 3. Paint over your contact paper.
Switch colors if you want!
Step 4. Let your paint dry completely.
Step 5. Once your paint is dry, Peel off the contact paper! It's that easy.
You can use this technique to screen print onto Paper as well, Like I did Here:
I'd love to see your version!! Be sure and leave me a link if you do this!
xo, Katie

  1. This is a really cute idea! You should post it on totally tutorials! It usually gets lots of views!


  2. freaking awesome idea! can't wait to try it. :D

  3. I LOVE this method, I made a pretty rad Sarah Palin t-shirt (she's like crazy Oprah, I love her in a non-political way) but it took foreeeever cutting out the stencil. My little heart is lusting for a Cricut.

  4. Just a quick note to let you know that a link to this post will be placed on CraftCrave today [07 Mar 12:00am GMT]. Thanks, Maria

  5. This is awesome! What a great idea. I must try it myself soon!

  6. This is so cool! And I'm still totally jealous that you own a Cricut! I want to come over to your house and play! :)

  7. Thank you so much for sharing.........
