Planning on changing my bathroom's vinyl floor also wanted to practice making a template with cardboard which could later be transferred onto wood.

Figured cut it so it overhangs and is too big then gradually cut it down until it fits around toilet etc

Cut the vinyl to the general size, a bit larger, then unscrew the toilet from the floor and slide the vinyl under it, finally trim to size. The very slight difference in toilet height, will make no difference.

And get yourself some hooked blades for trimming the vinyl - much easier. Just be careful with them, though, they can give you a nasty puncture wound in the leg

Use the old vinyl for the template and the space to fit under the wc.

...although I have to say...
That is NOT the way to hang a toilet roll! ;)
So does that make you a Big-Endian? or a Little-Endian?

BTW our cats are ambidextrous - they can bat it all over the place either way round (personally I think it's the one who learned to open doors that does it, but I am yet to catch him in the act)
