Paper Crafts

General

What is a printable template?

Printable templates are digital PDF files.

Software Requirements

Do I need any special software?

All you need is the FREE Adobe Reader on your computer! Most computers will already have this installed but check that you are using one of the latest versions.
 
The latest version is called “Adobe Acrobat Reader DC” and you can download (or update your earlier version) for FREE quickly and easily here: http://adobe.com/go/reader.
 
Some resources are more than one file. In cases like this the files may be packed together in a zip-file. To open a zip file you need to unzip it first
 
Please look here for more help on how to unzip: www.wikihow.com/Unzip-a-File.

Printing and Paper

Will the template print exactly the same color that I see on my computer?

Generally you will see slight variations in the color of your printed template from what you can see on your computer screen.
 
This is because not only do the colors vary from monitor to monitor, but will also vary depending on the type of paper you choose, your printer and your printer settings.

How many times can I print the template?

You can print the template as many times as you like as long as it is for your own PERSONAL use.

What kind of paper should I use?

Templates are formatted for A4 sized paper  but print perfectly on US Letter sized paper (8.5 x 11 inches)  sized paper too.
 
I recommend printing on  heavyweight Matte Photo Paper for best results. If that is out of your budget, choose a bright white Cardstock.

How do I print the templates?

My printable templates are designed to print at home on your color printer.

Cutting and Assembling

How do I thread the superhero puppets or how do I make it into a jumping jack/string puppet?

To make a jumping jack or string puppet, you need to slide a piece of string through the holes you made in the small white circles on the arms and legs (the larger circles are for the fasteners). You can either make a small knot to keep the string in place or loop the string and tie the arms together. Repeat this process for the legs. Then take a longer piece of string and tie it to the to pieces of string connecting the arms and legs. Check out the images below for more details. Images are showing the back of the paper puppet.
