How do I make my cute bird template the right size?

I have designed three different free printable birds saved in JPG format in A4 size – so printing is easy! If you want a large or small bird template, just adjust your printer settings accordingly.

They may be printed on any printer, cut apart as desired, or used as a sketch for a watercolor painting by transferring them to watercolor paper.

If you want to print out a bird template on a larger A3 sheet, then make sure to ‘set to size’ on your printer settings.
