Stencil cutter

My recent obsession has been stencil making and i pulled up a ton of images that can be turned into beautiful stencils. So, the very first piece I made is Ganesha( An Indian God) and stenciled on our prayer room table and here is how it looks :


Initially, I traced the image on plastic folder and tried to cut with a craft knife, but  the sheet of plastic was too thick . So I ended up doing it on a paper. But using a paper stencil was very tough to avoid it soaking in the paint. After all, I want to re-use them for different projects.

Then, after reading couple of blogs I found the stencil cutter is an easy way to DIY Stencils. Basically, it is a heating tool with sharp tip that burns the plastic. I found it at Walmart for 12 bucks and totally worth it. 

And I followed a simple and easy tutorial on  youtube(  on how to use this tool. Finally, here I am with the designs. They may not be perfect but I am happy with the results..:-)

Hi, I am very delighted that you stopped by! Welcome to Creative ME!!! I 'm a wife to an amazing hubby and recently mother to an adorable little munchkin :-), an Asian(Indian) native, nomad for a while and now currently @Portland, Oregan. Recently relocated from The Grand Canyon State and still adjusting to the gloomy weather here... When we first we moved to US(2012) ,our first 2 months of accommodation was in a hotel and that's when everything started. You must be wondering HOW? I was introduced to HGTV and started reading craft blogs. Ohh yes, PINTERST toooo and that is my fav! Well, inspired from these places, I started to DIY on budget and decorate our home. Whenever I posted pics of my projects on Facebook, everyone loved and gave many positive comments. Some of them also said I should not look for a job, instead start a blog or sell some of my projects ;) They thought I was doing something very cool!! That was a great motivation and I decided to tickle my creative senses to tame the stress monster ;-) And then, one day here is my blog , where I share my ideas and projects with friends, family and all other aspiring DIY-er's :) And if you like my blog, please come back and also don't forget to tell your friends :) Lastly, if you have a fun and functional craft or project or even a simple recipe I want to hear….please let me know and I can feature, down the line we will make Creative ME to WE..;)
