This little book contains six sturdy stencils of rain forest animals. The designs are beautifully drawn and display the creatures boldly without too many small parts. The stencils are pre-cut on easily detachable cardstock pages. I used this set to cut out parts of the animals from various colors of foam craft sheets which I made into puzzles for my younger friends. You'll have fun coming up with other ways to use them. The animals depicted are a toucan, a howler monkey, an armadillo, a gorilla, a caiman, and a tree frog.
Bought every one of these little books that were available. They are small, about 1/4 the size of a standard sheet of paper. The inside is medium weight card stock and each page has one stencil. There are maybe 8 to 10 pages of stencils based on the book's theme in each book. Wouldn't use for a painting project, but I'm planning to turn them into fabric applique designs, and they will be perfect for that use.
These stencils are in a small booklet, but my grandchildren loved them. I taught them out to join the separated pieces of the animals together to form a whole. They liked all the animals.
This booklet has the cutest designs I have ever seen. I love the heavyweight of the stencils which will make them last longer. Really cute.
I LOVE all of these little template booklets. I use them for applique, stenciling, and painting. I check for new ones ALL the time and grab them up when I see them.
The stencils themselves were bigger than I expected but are sturdy and good quality. Very satisfied with my purchase.
Purchased for a baby shower game, everyone loved it! Each page has an image.
