If you’re a fan of recycling and keeping things simple then this project is for you.

Are you new to working with paper stencils? If so (or even if not) you should know that you can prepare your paper stencils so that they can be used again and again. Yeah! That’s right. The one you just printed can become a long term free stencil. It’s easy. Do you have some of that clear, wide packing tape? Just use it to run even strips covering all of the paper surfaces before you cut out the stencil. Burnish or rub the tape down to get the air pockets out. That’s it.
For more on working with paper stencils see our article on
If you think you are going to become a downloadable stencil fanatic then get yourself some clear shelf liner paper to cover your stencils before cutting them out. It’s so much easier and it’s really not expensive at all. You’ll love the ease this provides.
By the way, I like to do just the top side of the paper. If the bottom is slick it can encourage paint to bleed under the stencil and smudge your surface. The underside may get wet when you wash it but just let it dry and you can flatten it back out by storing it in a book.
Working with paper stencils has a few more advantages. You can adjust the size of your paper stencil to fit the size of your project. Just take the page to a copier and reduce or enlarge. Then cut out the stencil openings. It's that easy and you can’t do that with a plastic stencil.
Wait! There's more. Don't miss these cute Free Pumpkin Stencils and the ideas that I share with you for using them (along with a great video).
