Default Question about hybrid box template

One by Heather--the box that looks like a happy meal box? Is it possible to just print out guidelines off the box onto pre-existing printed 12x12 paper? Does it come with guidelines if you're not using the layers for digital papers? I'm not even sure what size paper the template prints out onto! I don't have a 12x12 printer, but one that prints on 8.5x11 to 8.5x14 and smaller.

Help?

All of Heather's templates print onto 8.5x11 paper. If it's a bigger template it's sometimes split onto 2 pages, but they are made with the home printer in mind (not a wide format).

I'm not sure which specific template you're talking about, but I opened up the milk carton one in PS. The template is set up as shapes to clip papers to, and there aren't any guidelines that would print if you turned the shapes off.

My suggestion would be to recolor the template as a whole, to a light grey color, and print it out onto white cardstock. Then you can cut that out and use it as a template for the 12x12 patterned paper. Does that make sense?

I meant this one: https://www.sweetshoppedesigns.com/s...cat=338&page=5 Um, sorry about the long link, I'm not sure how to insert the pictures with links into these posts yet.

It's good to know the templates fit onto 8.5x11 sized paper! I think I can make some guidelines without printing and cutting apart for a pattern--that would kind of negate the benefit of not printing with a lot of ink while also using up my paper stash.

That one actually says right in the description that it prints on 2 pages.
"DIY Printable Templates: Tote Box includes 1 template that requires two printings to create a tote box. Finished box measures approximately 5.25" wide by 5" tall by 3.5" deep. Step by step instructions are included. Pre-designed Tub Time printable box IS included. For personal use only. "

Printing it as a light grey uses VERY little ink. And then you only have to print it out once, and file it away for later uses. I've done it lots of times. To me, taking the time to make guidelines is far more work. But, that's just me.

Enjoy!

Ah, I thought the "two printings" meant you printed twice on the same piece of paper, after turning it over, so that you had coverage on the interior and the exterior. I didn't know it meant it was spaced out over two individual pieces of paper.

You can do it that way if you want, but I never do. I just leave the inside white.

One easy way to make just outlines would be to add a layer style to each layer - a stroke of 3 in gray or black would do, then just set the fill or opacity setting for the layer to 0. Copy and paste that layer style to all the layers and viola! lines! HTHs

Oh and for printing double sides - I've found it very difficult to print precisely in the sections when you flip the paper over. If you want printing on the inside of a project I suggest printing an overall pattern on the reverse side - just big enough to cover all the template pieces. Then flip the paper over and print the template/design.
