No printer? Optionally use a small ruler and pencil to mark the grid
Optional: use a grid stencil to mark dotted grid. Find a the Ultra grid shown in the lesson at Acadia Laser here
Optional: create and print your own grid using one of these websites. Remember I do not endorse or own any of these, so caution when using:
1) Gridzzly: super easy to use, my favorite.
2) Incompetech: offers many different options and different selections. Careful with the ads and misleading green buttons.
3) Printablepaper: huge selection of shapes, but doesn't offer option to customize the paper size.
Tip: Make your own template!
If you can't print your dotted paper over cardstock, then use this really neat idea by Kerri. Mark your own dots on cardstock, tape it with packing transparent tape to make it sturdier and then punch the holes with a thick needle. Brilliant, thank you Kerri!
This lesson will work over any type of graph paper
