How To Cut Stencils with ScanNCut


Julie Fei-Fan Balzer, crafting expert and educator, is a paid consultant of Brother ScanNCut USA.

I would say I get at least one e-mail every single day asking the same question: Can you use the ScanNCut to cut stencils?  The answer is a resounding yes!  Yes!  Yes!

Over the years I’ve done six or seven different videos about creating stencils with your ScanNCut because it’s such a popular subject.  Each time I do a ScanNCut stencil video I try to tackle a different aspect of stencil creation.  Today’s video is about how to take a design that would make a fabulous mask and turn it into a proper stencil.  Watch the video for the how-to.




And before you ask: you can use virtually any stencil material under 2mm to create your stencil with the ScanNCut.  I use stencil film, transparencies, plastic packaging, and good old fashioned paper!  There isn’t a “right” material to use.  It’s whatever you like to use and/or happen to have on hand.  That’s one of the great things about the ScanNCut. Use what you love.

Talk to you next week!
