Here's a couple of tips to make the assembly process easier after a PDF pattern has been printed. In my example I refered to the hotpatterns fringe festival scarf-t. First locate the sheet that shows the order pattern pieces need to be taped together. Notice 1 sheet almost looks empty because it's within the body of the pattern. Arrange pieces on a large table. Next I took a cutting mat, ruler and a rotary cutter that quilters use and trimmed off the right side, bottom of each sheet to the circle marks.

For my example sheet #2 has 3/8" of paper extending past the pattern on the left side, page 1 is trimmed making it easy to line up dots and tape. I only taped together each pattern piece making it easier to handle.
