Those are awesome! I have one suggestion: for Photoshop, you can do it all in one step by going into the filter menu, scrolling down to "sketch" and selecting "stamp."

eh i really dont like that method. I'm like a perfectionist when it comes to stenciling..if it's not really pretty and stuff, I get angry haha.

_That method wouldn't leave lines clean enough.

Adding two methods to your list -with my horrid grammar & English-

Photocopier! -manually & for those that are intimidated by computers-

1. Go to the nearest photocopier
2. Play with the settings -or nicely ask the person to play with the settings- until the darker areas look really dark & the lighter areas appear lighter, creating blocks of image.
3. With a dark marker -sharpie- color over those areas that are dark creating a stencil
4. Using tracing paper -I hope this is the right name in English- copy the basic lines to your design & use that to trace the stencil onto your stencil material -contact paper/cardboard/x-ray/freezer paper/material of your choice-
5. Cut material & use

The good thing about using tracing paper is that:
a. You can keep the picture for future projects
b. It allows you to simplify the lines of the image

Adobe Illustrator/FreeHand -advanced users-

I find better to start with a black & white picture, then tracing the lines I want as part of my stencil in Illustrator/FreeHand obtaining a stencil that is not only extremely clean but also completely resizable without loosing image quality.

sorry, i'm not sure if i'm doing something wrong, but when i click on the links for the tutorials, and they open in new windows, they are only large enough to read for about a second before they resize automatically.  even when i expand the new window to full size, the tutorial images stay too small for me to read the actual text directions, and all i can see is the large images changing in format (specifically the microsoft word one).  is there another way to view these so that they remain large enough to read?  i use internet explorer for my browser.
thanks!  sorry for my lack of computer abilities (blush)

yeah, the turoials are each a picture, and your browser must be set on to where it resizes images to fit the screen.
to take this option off, open interent explorer. click on tools. click on interenet options. click on advance. scroll down til you see the title "multimedia" and uncheck the first box.

This tutorial is terrific! I just have one question though, how do you print the whole thing out?  I keep only getting the first page of each group.  Thanks!

I have no idea haha each tutorial is it's own image...so it must have something to do with your printer settings or something.
