Have you ever tried to trace around a paper template? The edges are so flimsy your pencil slides under or over, and makes a mess.
Here’s an easy way to print a sturdier template.
Cut a manilla folder in half, and then cut one side to 8 1/2 inches by 11 inches, so it will fit through your printer.
Lay the cut manilla folder page on top of the paper in your printer.
Find the template you want to print, and when you press “print”, the template will be printed on the manilla folder.
Cut the template out.
The edges of this template are firmer than paper and easier to trace around.
If you are going to use this template a lot, trace it onto cereal cardboard or other sturdy cardboard or milk jug plastic.
