ScanNCut Freezer Paper Techniques
May 30, 2017
I'm sure that freezer paper is useful in the kitchen, but I love it in the craft room! Today I've got two freezer paper techniques for you.
In case you don't know what freezer paper is, it's a "thick paper with a plastic or wax coating on one side. It differs from parchment, which has no coating, and wax paper, which has a coating on both sides." (from the kitchn blog). I know freezer paper from the quilting world where it is often used to create stencils. You can melt the wax coating with a hot iron to create a temporary (and non-damaging) bond with fabric.
I've cut many freezer paper stencils by hand over the years and I wasn't sure if the ScanNCut would have a delicate enough touch with this thin paper, but it did! Check out how easy it is to create a freezer paper stencil using your ScanNCut:
And now a super cool technique that makes cutting fabric without a high tack fabric support sheet or a fabric blade possible! Seriously. It's like magic! (And perfect for the casual fabric cutter.)

What do you do with freezer paper in your craft life? I'd love to know!
