After choosing a template pattern to print off on A4 paper and a few frustrating attempts at transferring onto a material surface, I settled on this.....

From a cardboard breakfast cereal box I remove the front and back panels, spray gp adhesive on the picture sides to dry tacky then press together.
Cut out a rectangle around the chosen diagram plus a card to match and repeat the adhesion process then do the precision cutout.
The resultant sturdy template is reusable and can be recut to contour lines for shaping.
I also use a sharp pointed scribe to pierce and indent drill centres.

That's what I do. For traceable templates I cut those out of the notebook plastic. Works great as well
I got a box of different templates glued to cardboard some single some doubled up . But I always lose shape tracing them or my hand moves marker to fat always something. I know hand made never going be spot on . I bin having good luck just glue sticking them on well except one I hit to hard compressed air blew it off things happen.
