After you pick out what stencil you want to draw go ahead and draw it on the card. Next you want to get a razor blade and grip it in between a pair of pliers and heat it up with a lighter so it won't make an easier cut through the card.

After you're done melting and cutting out your stencil it will be a bit messy and it's okay if it doesn't look good just grab yourself a little file and start filing the edges to make them smooth and nice after that! enjoy and be safe!

Great use of an old card. It'll be a lot stronger than regular stencils.

they work great, > its best to glue a popsicle stick on it as well so that when you use it you don't get your hands messy! thanks much!
