Crafting keeps the madness at bay. Or is it the cause?

I was wondering if printing from a laser printer onto acetate and then cutting it out would make a decent permanent stencil?

yeah that would work great! I made stencils with the plastic sheet protectors and used a VERY LIGHT coat of spray adhesive. they have held up thru many stencilings.

I don't know about acetate stencils, but don't use a laser printer! My friend used one with acetate once, and it melted inside the printer... Hope this doesn't get to you too late!
