I know you can buy stencil template plastic at craft stores, which you can cut using a craft knife.  As for the designs, check out iStockPhoto or Photoshop brushes – you can always blow them up on a photocopier.  Check Michaels and Hobby Lobby, though – they have a ton of pre-cut stencils, maybe something there will work for you.

I think you could probably find a stencil of something like that at your craft store. I know that Lowes carries a wide variety of stencils too if you want to check those out. You could probably do a google search for stencils too.

Good luck!

Try a hardware store with a paint dept like Home Depot, maybe Lowe’s or Orchard Supply. I would look in the paint dept for the stencils that can be used as a paint border.

You could download an eps from Briarpress and blow it up in Illustrator. Print it and cut it out from acetate.

I don’t want to be a buzzkill…really…but I just want to make sure you realize how long this is going to take.  I recently cut one item, less detailed, out of a template (8.5×11 paper), and it took me forever, and I regretted the project…I do paper crafts all the time.  So, I am just suggesting that you do one prototype, time it, and decide if it is something you will enjoy for that many hours.  Hopefully you are more patient than me, and it will be a fun project!
