Test-cutting stencil patterns out of some kind of wax-paper on the lasercutter. Top: SK6812-EC15 LEDs, bottom HRO TYPE-C-31-M-12 USB connector (the two parts with the smallest pads on my PCB).
For scale, each of the three USB connector attempts is 7mm wide in total.
I can't believe the paper still holds together as these really fine strings on the first attempt of the USB connector! But I think I will go with the middle version (labelled 5).
