  1. Great video John, I have made some stencils from acetate, it wasn’t so hard to cut (CM600) but they where hearts and I thought when it was finished that I couldn’t make amore intracte design because the acetate is very stiff. I hope to find the polypropylene 350 you recommend but still didn’t find it. Google gives me a lot of polypropylene but not the sheets in 350 micron.
    Thank you so much for this great video, stay safe and have a wonderful Sunday.

  2. Thanks John – really helpful. Can anyone tell me where they have managed to buy the 350 polypropylene sheets from please


  3. Thanks John. I found this very useful. Going to look online at mylar sheets, I have a CM900 and a Cricut Explore 3 air which is my go to machine unless I need to cut something I’ve printed.
