Did you know that you can make reusable stencils in your Cricut? I found these plastic dividers at Target and cut overlays from the Artbooking cartridge.
Here are a few stencils that I have already cut.
To start, place the plastic divider on the mat and load it into your machine. Move the blade to the top corner of the plastic divider and hit the “set cut area”.
Press the “fit to page” button and set the pressure to max then “cut”.
Here are two stencils that I cut from the same plastic divider.
And this is how it looks when applying the ink pad directly to the stencil.
I hope this tutorial has been useful.
Until next time,
thanks for sharing such a helpful hint — your pictures are very helpful as well
Glad you liked it Kathy! 🙂
This is BRILLIANT!! I’ve been making mine out of paper and throwing them out. You’ve just saved me!!!
Yay! Glad you were able to gleam a useable tip from my blog. 😉
