For Reusable Utensil Holder

  1. Download Stripes_Stencil.fcm to your machine.
  2. Load the low-tack mat with a piece of cardstock.
  3. Cut out the cardstock with the machine & discard the three center pieces of the stencil.
  4. Lay the stencil over the top of the utensil holder and use it to guide where the fabric ink or paint is applied to the fabric. Press the stencil down firmly to ensure it doesn’t move around while the fabric is being covered.
  5. Once all sections have been colored in, lift the stencil. Allow the holder to dry completely before using.
  6. Done!
