    Print the template out using a program like Publisher, but make sure that your margins in your computer program are all set to .25” and that you drag the boundary lines (the black lines on the edges of the Wonder Template) to the edges of the 8 1/2" x 11" paper that shows in your program. If you have a printer that allows you to copy the template and print it on the patterned paper you can do that, too. You can, also, use this sheet as a guide and draw the sheet onto the back of the patterned paper using a ruler and a pencil.
