    I like the look of this and had a thought to add to save time – - if you own a Cricut or Silhouette or any other die cutting machine, why not use your machine to do the letter cutting and stencil for you? Cut letters from your torn out book pages and then use a heavier card stock for the stencil itself. Would save a ton of time!

    Better yet, if your chosen “book page” is a card stock, use it for both the stencil and letters in your machine with only one cutting or simply trace around the cut out letters after they are glued down. Easy!

    u could even make it easier by cutting only one set of letters from your background page, and then simply layer another page of sheet music, etc., behind the negative space.
