This brass stencil made by plaid for disney is very well made and nice. This is Winnie the Pooh and it resembles him well, which is usually the issue when purchasing items like this. I am not a big scrapbooker or cardmaker but enjoy doing a little here and there and trying out different things. Brass stencils are kind of different from other items in that you need special items to go along with them. A light box (or something of the like) and a special tool are a must if using them for cards, but we do use it for other things. I actually use my son's little tikes desk that has a light box in it for this stencil and it works great.
Being that this is made of brass and a nice thick piece it is quite durable and really very hard to harm or destroy in any way. It is also easy cleaned if you need to. The Pooh is well done and has thick enough lines to get your tool around nicely, yet still detailed enough and I like that the hunny bees are a bit smaller (not as thick) more true to size in the real world.
We also use this for other things such as coloring with my son. We take a crayon and lay it down on the side to skim over the top, put the paper over the stencil and then you have a nice picure of Pooh. Or also we use it when making brownies sometimes. You can sprinkle powered sugar on top after putting it over the brownie (or any baked item) and then when you remove it shows Pooh. It is alot of fun for the kids. I would recommend this item.
