A friend recommended these to me, but I was doubtful. I'm not a big stencil fan. Boy was I wrong. I've used this template repeatedly to add custom flourish to my LOs. I trace them on the desired cardstock and cut out the shapes. These swirls are right up my alley, and the results have been great.
I've used this template on every page I've done since I bought it! It is just the perfect touch to your page, and you can have a flourish in any color/paper you want. Difficult to cut out, but worth it!

I absolutely love this stencil. So versatile! You can add flourishes any color of pp, ink, chalk or whatever. Loads of possibilities!

These swirls are very large being 12x12" and make nice accents on scrapbook pages but are too big to use that way on cards. I found they work nicely on cards if you use a pale color ink that just adds to the background and is not a main player in the design. My only complaint is the plastic material should be stiffer, therefore only 4 stars.
These are made with thick plastic so they hold up well and your pencil doesn't slide outside of the lines! They create really cool effects on paper...I wouldn't want to doodle without them!
