Harry Potter 7.5 and Totally Awesome T-shirts

For Harry Potter 7.5 my friend Martha and I decided to make t-shirts.  Why?
A) We love Harry Potter.
B) We love making t-shirts.
It was Martha's idea so I cant take all the credit.  

For theses shirts cut out 8 1/2 X 11 sheets of freezer paper.  
Using an inkjet printer, print out your preferred saying and cut out the individual letters. Make sure the letters print out on the paper side not the plastic side. 
Place the letters on the shirt and iron them on plastic side down. (Don't worry they peal off really easy).  
Put bleach in a spray bottle and squirt around the letters. 
Press the hot iron on the sprayed area for instant color change.
(I usually spray a few squirts then iron, then spray some more then iron)  
When you are content with the contrast, peel off the wax paper letters. 
Wear totally awesome shirt.

Me and Martha at the Harry Potter 7.5!!!
My shirt: "Make Love Not Horcruxes".
Martha's shirt: I solemnly swear I am up to no good".
