How do you temporarily attach a Template to a piece of cardstock, so it doesn't move while you are working with it?

Any suggestions will be appreciated!!!

Good suggestion Holly! I didn't even think of painter's tape.

I read one time that some people use repositional adhesive, (don't know what kind) but some repositional is only repositional for a short period of time, and then it becomes permanent.

All I have is blue painters tape...so I will be using that for now. But I have a lot of templates....so I should look into that stencil spray...for future use!

Thanks so much for all your suggestions!!!

I don't know why you need to hold it down. If you are working on a flat surface, you just lay it flush, surface to surface, on the cardstock and spray. Unless you're working on an upright surface, that should be all you need to do.

All the blu-tack (and it comes in yellow and white, too) that I've used leaves an oily residue behind.

I'm not using spray, I was doodling with markers and using different templates. Sometimes the template tends to slide around on the paper while I am working with it.

I used blue painters tape, and it worked great!!!

Post it notes. I tear strips along the top so that I have a line of the sticky bit.
