So I decided to document the easy steps and share it with the insructables community.
If you can trace you can make a stencil.
Step 1: Design Your Stencil
Or draw it yourself if your are more skilled than me.
*This paper will be destroyed so don't use something you are attached to.
Step 2: Gather Your Tools
a cutting tool
your stencil design printed
and your stencil medium
At the craft store the stencil medium is a sticky paper or a flimsy plastic, which is fine for one time use but if your are making something to last get something thicker.
* Pictured is the stuff I found.
Step 3: Tape Your Stencil
Lay down your stencil design.
Lay your stencil medium over it and center your design.
Tape it down so it is secure.
Step 4: Cut
Step 5: Untape
Step 6: *WARNING
The harder the plastic of your stencil medium, the harder on your fingers.
