After I did the practice exercise using the design Don provided, I made a small flower stencil for the quilt I’m currently working on. This time I used two pieces of cereal box cardboard and cut a 4-1/2" square window opening in the center using an exacto knife. Then I stretched the tulle over one piece of cardboard and taped it in place with painter’s tape to secure it while I added the second piece of cardboard, sandwiching the tulle in the middle, and then stapled the cardboard together. I had intended on using glue to hold the cardboard pieces together, but my glue was all dried up. The end product is a small stencil that I plan on storing in a notebook for future use.
