Ok. I have this design that I want to us for stenciling. Can anyone tell me what material I should buy to make the stencil. I have seen the regular stencil material at michaels but wasnt sure if it was food grade. I'm not sure if I will be cutting the stencil by hand or using my cricut machine.

I live somewhat close to Designer Stencils that sell so many beautiful cake stencils. They sell just the plain material for making your own food grade stencils in their shop. Not sure if they sell it online or by phone orders but it's worth checking it out. Good luck - I'd love to hear how the stencil making process goes!

I found some flexible chopping mats at the Dollar Tree store. There were 3 mats in the package, and obviously food grade. Cuts fairly easily with X-acto knife. Works well as a stencil.
