Valentine’s Day may be tomorrow, but there is still time to create some seriously pretty love notes. If you’ve seen my Etsy shop, you would know that I know paper cutting words, so I created this easy tutorial for making your own letter stencils, and using color to your wildest imagination.


– card stock for stencil
– pencil, and eraser for mistakes
– craft knife / X-Acto blades
– paper or card stock and envelopes for cards
– color medium of your choice – paints, colored pencils, oil pastels, etc.

Begin by writing your message in block lettering. If you don’t feel comfortable writing free-hand, try printing your word(s) in your favorite font to use as a stencil.

Cut out the letters as silhouettes with your craft knife.

Center your stencil over your blank card where you want your wording to appear. Begin filling in your letters with complimenting or contrasting colors. I used colored pencils…

… and neon paints:

Your stencil can be used over and over until it wears out, but make sure it isn’t stained through before using again on a clean blank card.

That’s it! I hope you all have a very lovely Valentine’s Day.
