  5. Starting with the letter "P" from "PLEASE",  lay the stencil for the "P" on top of the "P" that was traced on the paper.  Hold the stencil down without moving it and remove the paper from underneath.  Stencil the "P" in Licorice.  Repeat the same step for each letter.  Make sure to leave a space between the "N" and the "T" for the apostrophe.  It will be cut out of stencil blank.
