    If you wanted to make a custom stencil, what would be the best material? I'm thinking paper would just bleed through. Let me know what you think.

    Extra thick printer paper (or two sheets) with soft lamination.

    Yeah TennsDog. Draw your stencil on a piece of paper/cardboard, laminate it, then cut it out with a stanley knife.

    Or you can get one of those plastic folders that kids use in school. They're already see through and you just have to cut out the design.
