Print off the headstock and fretboard sections, cut them out and stick them like I did to a piece of wood.  A quick wrap with some sticky back plastic is probably advised to guard against dirt/spillages and the fretboard itself is ready to go!.  The cards require a little more work, but whereas I made all 46 cards (major, minor, 7th, pentatonics etc.) in one extended sitting, you can just make up the ones you need as and when.


To make long lasting scale/chord cards, print out the templates, and glue to some thick card.  Once dry, use a sharp knife along a ruler to score and then pop out first the individual cards themselves, and then the white rectangles showing the relevant scale/chord pattern and you're done. Keep in a safe place!
