How to make it

  1. Striped Stars T-shirts - Step 1

    To make one, first slip sheets of newspaper inside a plain white shirt so that when you print on the fabric, the paint won't bleed through to the other side.

  2. Next, cut out several corrugated cardboard stars. Peel away the top layer of each star to expose the ribbed layer. Coat the corrugation with red or blue fabric paint and then firmly and evenly press the painted surface against the shirt. Carefully lift away the star.

  3. When you've finished stamping your design, let the paint dry completely and then set it according to the manufacturer's directions.

  4. Tip: To make the painting process less messy for kids, glue a cardboard square onto the back of each star for a handle.
