- toilet paper roll,
- a printer,

- Glue the large rectangular piece on first to cover the tube.

- Close the template window after printing to return to this screen.
- Set page margins to zero if you have trouble fitting the template on one page (FILE, PAGE SETUP or FILE, PRINTER SETUP in most browsers).
