 Krylon easy- tack I'm using this to hold down paper patterns for scrolling. Sometimes it holds but I have a lot of experience with it giving out while I'm scrolling. What am I doing wrong? Everyone swears up and down that it works great. I only spray the pattern per the directions on the can and then place it on the work piece, then scroll.

Frank when you spray on the paper leave it until it goes tacky that put it on I also use clear 2" tape on top which will help the blade.

Try this : First cover the project with Painters Tape then using the spray contact cement I spray first the painter tape then spray the paper that holds the pattern then wait for them to tack up a minute then working carefully put the pattern where you want it. The painters tape like almost tape you use has the ability to really help your scrolling it adds lubrication to the cut making you scroll saw cut easier. I have been using this method for as long as I have had tape that would cover the project this way you also avoid having to wash or having to remove the glue. Hope this helps - Don

I use the same method as Sdaupanner does above because I like how easy the painter tape comes off the wood.  No clean-up.

I have tried other spray on adhesives, but find Krylon is the easiest and does not leave a mess.

Sometimes when i have templates made of the patterns, I just trace the pattern on the wood and cover the wood with clear packing tape.

I have cut some of the templates I use most often out of peel and stick vinyl 12x12" squares. This idea came from John Lewman, and really makes it easy to get the pattern on the wood.

OK guys thanks for your inputs, I'll give it a shot with the painters tape. Last time I tried using masking tape, but it didn't work to well either. Spraying both sides sounds like it will be really good hold and then just peel off.

Frank it will work for you.
Another idea.  If you are using pre cut templates use the yellow painter tape, as it will be easier to see your line drawings.
Let us all know how the blue or yellow painters tape works for you.
