I was about to throw away the cottage cheese carton when my hand stopped mid-air!
Out whisked the cookie cutters, a marker, a small exacto knife, a cutting board
and WAH-LA
a stencil was born. 


             Use a lid from the peanut butter jar, cool whip carton, yogurt, cottage cheese  or any other food container to make circles.  Even the inside ring from that used up roll of tape will work.       Make different size circles using different size containers. A pasta measurer makes a great stencil too.
Use cookie cutters to trace shapes onto lids before cutting out different shapes.
Both the shape you cut out and the lid result in a stencil.
