Hey Everyone!

I am wanting to make a stencil with my Cricut. The ones I find to buy are around $50+.

My question is what type of plastic should I use for the stencil? Thickness, etc...

I'm told that the plastic used for cake stencils are thinner and stick better to fondant and icing as compared to regular stencils you can pick up at hobby stores.

There is a thinner mylar stencil material sold at hardware stores - They sell blanks. I have the name at home and will post it later today. I bought some for the same thing.

Haven't cut stencils yet but cut gingerbread templates out of posterboard - that worked great.

OK - is called Plaid Stencil Decor. They actually sell wall stencils but sell a cut your own blank. One package contains 3 sheets, each 9.75" x 18". I bought mine at Menards, but have seen them at Lowes or Home Depot etc.

Good luck - let us know how it works!
