If you go to the Stencil section of most craft stores you can find sheets of Mylar, the plastic material that stencils are made from. A small 12 x 12 sheet is only $1.99. I cut mine to the 8.5″ with to fit my machine and was then ready to create!
I love how it adds just a tiny little detail! I can’t wait to get busy making more and more stencils! There are thousands of designs I can upload from the Silhouette collection on line! The trick is using a design that is solid and will punch out in one piece! This entire project took me like 10 minutes start to finish! I love this new toy of mine!
