HERE’S WHAT YOU NEED

HERE’S WHAT YOU DO

While the paint is drying, open the design in your cutting software.  Size the design to fit on your wood.  Mine was about 10″ x 5″.  Draw a box around the design to create a stencil.

Normally, when I create a stencil, I’ll make the box the same size as my board.  Doing this helps me to make sure the design is straight and centered on the board.  But, because this board is so long and the design isn’t in the center, I had to do it a little different.

I still made my box the same width as the wood sign (11.25″), but instead of making it the same height as the board, I just made the rectangle a couple of inches taller than my design.  I decided I wanted the tops of the letters 1″ from the top of the sign, so I placed the top of the rectangle 1″ above the letters.
