Craft Tip

It seems like I'm always using homemade stencils for some project. I just print out letters, pictures, etc. then create a stencil out of that instead of buying twenty million different stencil packs only to use one letter. I digress. I just wanted to pass on this tip in case any of you find yourself needing a stencil quickly. I save empty cereal boxes. I just flatten them out and stash them behind an armoire in the front bedroom so they're out of the way. They're the perfect thickness for what I need. So I print the letters, then lay them on the cereal box. Using a ballpoint pen, I firmly trace around the letter leaving an imprint of the outline on the box. Cut them out, and there you go.
