On these multicolored ornaments, I used the cookie cutters at the beginning of the process to help me figure out the shape, situating the cookie cutter on top of the peg board. However, this isn't a perfect method, as the curved lines of a cookie cutter and the unyielding pegs don't always match up. :) But it's a good start, and after that, you just have to eyeball it until your project looks the way you want it to.
