HOW TO MAKE YOUR OWN STENCILS - sheet music dresser







I want to show you how
make custom stencils,
the size I need, the shape
I want and inexpensively.







I don't have time to run to the craft store or wait for an order
 to come in the mail and because I work on larger projects I
 like to be able to make my own stencils to fit the right size of
 my projects. Below is a SHEET MUSIC dresser I created 2
different sized stencils for, both in a Fleur de lis design.




HOW TO:

** I print out a simple graphic on regular paper the size I want.
** Then I cover the front and back of the paper with strips of clear packing tape.
(This makes my stencil thicker and paint resistant.)
**The final step is to cut my stencil out with a shape knife and get to work.

YES IT REALLY IS THAT SIMPLE!


Here is a better look at the sheet music dresser I used
my stencils on. I adhered the sheet music paper with wallpaper paste.
