How to make a stencil


It’s Gaby with a new tutorial: stencil making.

Here’s what you need:

  • clear plastic sheet (I used some packaging from a box. You could use cardboard but it wouldn’t last as long)
  • a detail/precision knife
  • scissors
  • permanent marker (Sharpies work great)
  • something to stencil (I used Adobe Illustrator to print out a pattern of scales)

1. Find something to trace. A pattern, old stickers, paper scraps…

2. Trace your object with the permanent marker.


3. Cut out the objects with scissors and/or knife. Be careful–the plastic can be sharp!


4. Try it out!


What do think??

Hope you enjoyed this tutorial!
