Hi there,

These are probably basic questions -- but I searched and didn't find anything.  What's the best font to use for a stencil?  (Something easy please -- this is for the Craftster challenge.  I've never stenciled before and want to try it.)  And how do I "stretch" the text to fit the size of the bag that I want to stencil?  I tried typing and resizing in Word and in Powerpoint, but no luck. As far as I know, I don't have Photoshop on my computer.  Thanks in advance for any tips!

If you type your text using wordart in Microsoft word, you can stretch it vertically and horizontally.
Below is a link to a wordart tutorial.
You will have to experiment to see which font works best for you.
