I put clear tape on my ruler and traced the lines from the instruction sheet.

This is the first time I've posted with multiple pics.....I'm hoping everything shows up ok

This is how I did my template.

I'd like more variation, but didn't want to overthink this test!

    Nice job! I did the same thing at Christmas with a small tree...tape works great!
