HOW TO MAKE A CUSTOMISED STENCIL
Have you ever used a stencil or template in your project, if so do you love the effects you can create using them? In this tutorial we will look at how to create your very own unique re-usable stencil so that you can customise and add some extra points of interest to your projects.
12X12 plastic stencil sheeting
Photocopied Image of design
Mark your 12"x 12" border on the plastic sheeting; this acts as a guide for your overall size of template.
You could draw your design directly onto the sheeting or create a design in a photo-editing programme like Photoshop or PSE. If you choose this option, print out your image and use that as your design guide just as I have here.
When you are happy with your design align it underneath your plastic sheeting making sure the image remains confined within the outlined 12X12 border. Tape it along with the sheeting to your cutting mat to prevent it from moving then begin the careful cutting process.
Hope you find this tutorial a fun way to add that little extra something to your layouts and projects.
