How can I create a outline of a solid letter

Probably a very simple task but I rarely use graphics so I'm not in practice. And if it matters my filters on the menu bars are all disabled.
Anyway, I want to make letter stencils. I have the letter I want to use but they are solid black. Why waste all that ink? I want to transform the solid black letters into outlined of white letters so that I can print them and then cut them out.
Can you help me? Thanks.

Hi sofasurfer,
You can type the letter using a thick font like "Stencil BT Semi-Condensed" enlarge it's font-size to 200. Then select the text, now from "Filter" menu choose "Light and Shadow" then " Xach Effect". Choose white as the hightlight color and black as the drop shadow color in the dialog box. The text appears to be surrounded by dashed border just as when you fuzzy select. Using the "Move Tool" from the tool box drag the black text down, voila! you have the white text underneath the black one.
