Hello CC Family
I would like to know. I have to create a popcorn bag template. But this question is for any future template I make as well. What do I make the template out of so that I can keep it and use it over if I have too. What material do I use to make if firm enough so if can with stand several use.
At craft stores (like Michaels) you can buy plastic sheets that work well for templates. I forgot the brand name, but I just saw them recently. They are about the same thickness as the plastic covers for book reports - thick enough to hold up, but thin and flexible enough that you can cut them easily. I've used them before for leaf-shaped templates for tuille cookies and they clean up nicely. You may need to ask a store employee to point you in the right direction. Good luck!
i make a lot of my templates out of cheap table mats.. like the ones from wal-mart,etc..
I've made them out of paper then covered them with clear contact paper (front & back) and cut them out.
Whenever I make something that I want to use over and over again, I go to an "educational" type store and get the picture/template laminated.
Good luck, hth.
I save all the bits of cake boxes I've butchered to fit a cake properly as well as boxes that are too marred to give to customers.
Whenever I need a template, I cut it from the cakebox cardboard and cover at least one side of it with clear Contact paper.
If I need to make a template at Kinkos, I laminate it right there.
