Introduction: The Best Stencil

About: Im invisible. I like creating odd and creepy things cool things weird things scary things destructive things intelligent things dumb things worthless things, shiny things, loud things, obnoxious things, pretty…

In this instructable I will show you how to make a quick and easy stencil out of an old gift card or credit card making your stencil last forever and not get damaged during your stenciling!!

Step 1: Gather Materials

For this instructable you need an old credit card or gift card, a marker for to draw your stencil, a lighter, razorblade, and pliers

Step 2: Cut and Finish!

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.

Step 3: Finish Up & Put to Use!

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!
