Fab Flower Alert! Here's a helpful stencil how-to for using the zinnia flower stencils that we call BLOOMERS from the lovely Bonnie Christine Stencil Collection from Royal Design Studio. The Bloomer Stencil Sets each feature 2 different sized flower stencils that come in 3 simple-to-use layers and offer maximum design and color combinations. We wanted to show you how easy it is to use these stencils and to "layer" them for a completely custom effect. For this project we used the Big Bloomers Flower Stencil Set as well as the Medium Bloomers Flower Stencil Set for even more pattern variety.
