Yes, it's a partial sheet of stencils. Did you ever get and use those at Christmas time? It seems we got a new stencil book every year or two. We had friends who used stencils like this with glass wax to make frosty designs on their home's windows, but we never did that. Instead, we used the stencils to make cards, ornaments, and Christmas scenes using paper, crayons and colored pencils. Apparently, some child (more than likely me) was making something, maybe even using an idea from this magazine, and stuck the stencil in the magazine to mark a place, or just for a safe place to put it. So much fun from something so simple. Today's kids are missing so much!
