There are so many things you can do with stencils, and for this project I wanted to try something that I hadn’t seen before.  This is when I thought of a simple project using a stencil from istencils.  It’s perfect with Mother’s Day coming up…stenciled wrapping paper.

istencils has so many different stencils.  istencils has one of the largest online selections of stencils for home decor, custom clothing and more, including many different wall stencils.

To make the stenciled wrapping paper, I used heavy duty butcher paper and seriously it was SOOOO easy.  I used blue painter’s tape and taped the wrapping paper to a large picture frame, then taped the stencil down and used Glitter Blast and went to town.  I chose to use Glitter Blast because I knew it would cover well and show up through the stencil.  I used the 24×24 stencil and it worked really well.

Do you want to try a stencil from istencils now?  I’m sure there are projects just dying for a fun stencil design.  Well, I’ve got good news for you!

istencils wants to give one lucky Crafting Chicks reader a $50.00 gift certificate!

    I just went to istencils and I have NEVER seen so many stencils in one place! I probably would choose the number stencils or craft stencils! It would be ha hard choice to make, but with $50 to use, I could choose several stencils!

  3. I would LOVE the Route 66 stencil! We are doing a Chevy nursery for our little boy and this would fit perfectly!

    What a neat store! I am loving the background stencils!

  5. I think I’d get some pirate stencils and make my son some bad-a@@ tees!

    Since I don’t have any istencils, I don’t know which one I would since there are so many to choose from. Thanks Crafting Chicks for the opportunity to win this prize.

  7. I love the music stencil 89-00112! Clever design. I was really drawn to the music catagory stencils and I don’t even play an instrument.

    I am a follower on facebook. I love the decorative stencils. I’d love to have one of each but that is not possible. LOL There are a lot of beautiful stencils.
    Thanks for the opportunity to win a GC.

  20. These are so cute, and I’ m loving the wrapping paper idea! Awesome! I’m not sure why, but I love the giraffe print one!

  21. I am a public follower and I have to say I’m really impressed about the amazing array of stencils this company offers! I love the geometric stencils. I’d probably pick one of those…

  22. I love the all over repeat stencils! Great idea to stencil your own wrapping paper, these would have so many uses!

  23. Love to stencil…

  24. I loved the geometric stencils; specifically 27-00011.

  25. One of the map ones would look cool in my sons superhero room

  26. Vicki Fisher Says: May 10, 2012 at 10:33 pm

    I like the large stencils that would work for decorating my walls. My husband likes plain white walls, but a few stencils around a door or window would give a more decorated feel to those white walls.

    I am a public follower.
    So, many great stencils. I would definitely need some of the shell stencils but I love the rose stencil the most! thanks for the giveaway.

  28. I follow you! Thanks, mamatkins@hotmail.com

  29. There is sooo many! Five minutes later I decided I like the all over repeats, specifically 27-00075, it has 5 little flowetrs arranged in a circle. But there are many that I would love

  30. The rose stencils are so pretty 🙂

  31. Rebecca Says: May 11, 2012 at 4:54 pm

    The flames stencil rocks… especially since I could use it at work and home. We are the Flames at school and at home I could stencil rock apparel for my boys.

  32. Tiffany Says: May 11, 2012 at 4:59 pm

    I love the animal prints!

  33. I never used stencils before! What a great opportunity to learn. Since I work at a zoo, any of the animal ones would be great to use.

  34. Hard to decide which one i love most. The shells ate beautiful. And I’d love to try the allover stencils. Very inspirational.

  35. Pam Harris Says: May 11, 2012 at 5:12 pm

    Hard to choose, love the holiday stencils

  36. I would like to get some of the holiday stencils.

    I am getting ready to paint my curtains and would love to do it with a damask stencil!

  40. I love the amazing selection, so I didn’t know where to start. If I had to choose, I would choose the flower stencils because they are so diverse.

  41. steviecruz Says: May 11, 2012 at 6:24 pm

    love your ideas!! Wish I had more hours in the day for crafting– I probably would choose the number stencils or craft stencils! It would definitely be a hard choice to make. I could choose several stencils for all kids of ideas I have!

  42. Dix Millar Says: May 11, 2012 at 6:37 pm

    Thank you to the Crafting Chicks for the inspiration ! As a busy mom and full time worker I don’t get much time for an types of crafts But even a quick look gives me inspiration and brightens my day!

  43. Natalie Giron Says: May 11, 2012 at 7:30 pm

    I follow you on FB and love all the ideas and inspiration. I have been wanting a damask stencil forever and love 17-00005, so cute. Thanks for the giveaway:)

  44. Ok, I have a secret love of Skulls, so I liked their skull selection BUT I can’t believe they had SO MUCH to chose from. I’d have to say Damasks, which is pretty general, but I’d probably buy more than one of those, the skulls – they have to be a certain type of skull and being a “Mom” that never sounds too good to admit too 😀 Great selection though!

    I’m also a follower, but I’m hoping I did it right … :/

  45. Kathy Knudsen Says: May 11, 2012 at 9:17 pm

    There are so many wonderful designs. I like the damask, celtic, holiday, tree and beach/tropical…but really like most of them. I have done some stenciling many years ago and enjoyed it alot then. Maybe it’s time to give it a try again !

  46. marylou Says: May 11, 2012 at 9:34 pm

    I would not know which to choose. I love the holidays so I would probably start there, love your site!!!!

  47. How darling is this! Love it. Just popping by to say hello because I met some of you at SNAP. I’m enjoying my visit to your wonderful blog.

    Warmly, Michelle
