The new Princess Stencils!!
The girl! The castle! The wands!
The PERFECT little girl Birthday Party!
The PERFECT Babygirl shower cookie!
The PERFECT ‘I’m going to Disneyland’ themed set!
*Also these stencils are the perfect weight and color! Yes color!
They are off white so a darker paper can sit behind, so storage is easy to see for selection!

I LOVE all of Stencibelle’s stencils! I already have some but I would love to own the script writing stencil!

Great resources and teachers. These resources have taught me and are still teaching me how to decorate cookies. Thank you for everything you do.
