Are you doing freezer paper stencil? I would say that is the best option for this stencil.
You can print on Freezer paper (my printer can do it) so I would say that you should cut the freezer paper to standard printer paper size, print the image, and then cut it out with an xacto knife.
You need to make sure that as you are cutting, you retain the tiny pieces that will be needed (like all the insides of the loops and letters) and make sure that they are available when you are ready to stencil. Just iron on the freezer paper and then paint... voila!
Freezer paper is the most amazing craft supply that I have discovered... I feel like I have missed out on opportunities in my life since I discovered it...
I hope this is useful, if you have any questions, feel free to ask...
No question is a dumb question!
thanks so much i like that idea.. where can i get freezer paper ?
