This method saves a lot of time & effort when giving or following directions for a project. By using this system you can easily know exactly what size oval or circle to cut when following instructions at a class, workshop or online. It also makes sharing instructions a breeze!
Here is how to label your templates
Using a permanent marker, label the sizing chart and patterns 1 through 7 using the following system:
Circles (1-3) - 1 is the smallest circle, 3 is the largest
Ovals (4-7) - 4 is the smallest oval, 7 is the largest
While you’re at it – you might want to label your patterns & cutting guides, too. Lots of people have the same tools & labeling them with your name or initials makes it a snap to see what is yours when packing up at a crop.
The following abbreviations are used in projects:
I = Inside Track O = Outside Track
R =Red Blade G = Green Blade B = Blue Blade If a layout calls for the following: 1 I R (2) then you would use the smallest circle pattern (#1), cut on the Inside of the pattern with the Red blade and cut 2 circles.
