Cookie Cutters: Not Just For Cookies Anymore!
Post # 24: Simple Stencils
Sure, you can buy stencils, but why when you can use cookie cutters and some plastic binder dividers you already have on hand? A simple stencil can easily be made with these items and a craft knife.
In a pinch you can use the cookie cutter itself as a stencil. Use your cutters with stencil paint, give them to your children to trace & color shapes, or use them to create a unique cake topper and more.
- Make really large letters for project signs!
- Make your own custom phrase!
- Make custom party decorations!
- Make your own coloring pages!
- Much more!
- Plastic dividers: on-hand or $1. Making these stencils cheap enough to make and use once!
- Thin clear plastic
- Craft knife
- Cookie cutter
- Permanent marker
- Keep a look-out for thin plastic binder dividers and stock up. I got my latest ones at Dollar General for 50 cents a set on sale – that’s a LOT of stencils! When using your plastic stencil, spray Repositionable Spray Adhesive (Easy-Tack) on the back and then stick it to the wall, tee shirt, etc. Then you’re ready to stencil. If you need to store your stencil cover the sticky side with cellophane food wrap.
