I have a pattern from a wedding invitation that I would like to put on a wedding cake. I'm just wondering if anyone has ever made there own stencil to use, and if so, what was the best material to make it out of? Oh, and how did you cut the stencil out?

Go to Office Depot or any other office supply store and buy some transparencies for overheads.

How would you sut that out? Just with an exacto knife? Great idea!

I would try an exacto knife, one with a small blade and one that swivles. I even think they make a device for cutting stencils or use a wood burner used in carving wood. You may also be able to use a rotozip or an engraving tool. I think cutting by hand with and exacto knife could be long and tedious. So if you can find one of the above, you could work a lot quicker. If you have a cricut, you can cut with it.
