I am trying to figure out how you enlarge the guitar template i got here in CC. I can only make it so big in my printer. Any ideas icon_redface.gif

I went to Staples and had them enlarge it for me. If I recall, it was several sheets of paper.icon_smile.gif

Do you have a program on your computer to make it in banner form. It will print on several sheets of paper and then just tape them together. Depending on the size you want you could trace a guitar on freezer paper. That is what I did when I had to make a guitar cake. I hope this helps.

I have microsoft Picture It. I printed out sections of the guitar on separate pieces of cardstock then taped them together to use as a template.

I don't know if this helps, but when I did my guitar cake, I traced a Guitar Hero guitar. They're a little smaller than real guitars, but they still make a nice sized cake! If you have one available to you, this might be easier than making enlargements and copies. icon_smile.gif

I have brought many templates to Kinkos to be enlarged on their super-enornmous copier - the one that's used to duplicate blueprints. That way, you aren't trying to piece something together that may not have the same proportions.
