            I've been using foam core board for templates. Cost is about $6 a sheet for 3/32 board, but it's very stiff and stronger than cardboard, cuts easily and cleanly with a razor, and you can hot glue strips of it to "outline" a larger template area.

            I got mine at a local art store.
