HOW TO MAKE THE DRINK STENCILS
If you’d rather watch a video on how to make it step by step, take a look at this video here (highly recommended!):
STEP 1: GET THE FREE SVG FILE
Get the free drink stencil cut file from the Free Resource Library.
STEP 2: CUT IT OUT
This stencil is all ready for you to go! Go ahead and hit make it.
I ran a laminating sheet through my laminator (without actually laminating anything) to create a clear transparency sheet. Then I put this on my Standard Grip mat to cut out.
If you don’t have a laminator, you can just cut it out using card stock. However, card stock is not as durable and cannot be washed. But it’s great if you’re in a pinch or want to make temporary stencils!
Follow the prompts to cut it out. I used the heavy cardstock setting on my Cricut Maker with more pressure.
STEP 3: WEED YOUR DESIGN
Carefully weed your designs. Be careful when weeding around the letters.
STEP 4: USE YOUR STENCIL
I frothed my milk for my drink and added it to it. The key to getting a nice image with the stencil is to shorten the distance between your stencil and the foam. So fill the foam up to the top! This helps prevent the design from “bleeding”.
Just put some cocoa in a fine sieve and shake it over the design.
Nice! Make sure you serve the drinks immediately! The cocoa will not hold the shape for long.
