Parts of a Cookie Stencil

Let’s start with the basics–

A cookie stencil is a thin sheet of polyester film, plastic, or acetate with a pattern or letters cut out of it, used to produce the cut design on the surface below by the application of icing or airbrush colors through the holes. I took this from the dictionary, but changed it to cookie language. I always buy food safe plastic. If I am unsure, I call the manufacturer.

Here are what I call the parts of a cookie stencil. I am sure there are more technical terms, but I want to keep it simple.

  1. I can’t wait to learn!! I already cut stencils, but it’s just been trial and error. I haven’t had much luck finding stencil tutorials online. What plastic do you buy?
