Cut Letters From Printer Paper

Using scissors, cut the collegiate type font letters from paper for use as stencils. Tip: The two letters are used for a layered, shadow effect. When choosing proper sizes, it's best to stick with a size of 8 inches tall for the back letter and 7-1/2 inches tall for the front letter. This will create a properly proportioned shadow effect.
