  1. Awesome project! You could probably use them to decorate cakes, too. Thanks for sharing this fun idea. Glad you stopped by my blog today. Hope to see you again soon ;-)

  2. The Frida Kahlo cutout is so very cool! I've done the freezer stencils but nothing near as creative as you did. I found reusing was possible, just not over and over again.
