Full Answer

Alphabet stencils can be used in teaching or in parenting, and only require paper or plastic, and a razor knife. If children will be helping with the project, substitute the razor knife for child-safe scissors.

Step 1: Cut out paper letters

If only one set of letters is needed, a razor knife can be used to cut out around each letter.

Step 2: Use the paper stencil.

Use the cut paper as the stencil. It will be very floppy and tear easily.

Step 3: Make a plastic stencil.

If the stencil will be reused, place a sheet of polyester film or a clear plastic sheet on top of the lettered paper.

Step 4: Cut the plastic letter stencils

Trace the letters through the plastic and cut out the plastic letter shapes with the razor knife.
