Sorry ladies...I have no idea what to call what I am thinking they might make.

I have a new set of snap pliers because I am tired of snaps breaking or having diapers I want converted from aplix to snaps. I figure I can do it myself!

But I am wondering if they have like a plastic diagram of snap placement I could use. I imagine it would be easier than the way I just did one of my diapers (measuring with a tape measure and double checking with a ruler). It seemed like there must be an easier way.

But seeing I don't even know what to call it, I figured I would ask on here if they make anything like that.

Every diaper's snap placement is different based on how many snaps there are and how big the diaper is. You can make your own template though. Just figure out how many snaps you want and how far apart you want them. Mark those on stock cardboard or a plastic template, then punch out the snap placements with a paper punch. That way, you just put the template on top of the diaper, line up the middle and mark the snaps with a washable marker. Then put your snaps where the marks are.

Thank you! That is exactly what I was looking for. I am gonna get some plastic at the craft store today, since I tried with a regular piece of paper (I know it is much thinner than cardstock) and it was a disaster! I see how that would work. Although now I don't have any more diapers to snap. Lol. I did them both the hard way
