Default Is There a Concise Guide to Paper Mario: Sticker Star's Esoteric Puzzles?

I'm about to start Sticker Star, and the main criticism of the game I've heard (or at least, the main criticism that doesn't involve comparing Sticker Star to other games) is that it has a few obnoxiously obtuse puzzles that will waste a lot of my time if I don't just look up the solutions.

So I'm looking for a short guide to whatever puzzles all these reviews are criticizing. I don't want a walkthrough, or a combat guide. I want to play the game myself. I just want a 2 page guide that I can consult whenever I say "well, how the **** am I supposed to progress," and that'll tell me what the game expects of me so I'm not stick floundering around for two hours.

Does such a thing exist?

You play the game until you get stuck, and then you look up the answer when that happens, then you continue to play until you get stuck again. Best way to go.

I'm not sure if there's a guide that includes only puzzle solutions. When I played through Sticker Star, I played through normally and whenever I got really stuck, I looked up a video on YouTube by searching for the level (2-1, for example). GameXplain on YouTube is the channel I ended up using, because he has short videos for the levels. I don't believe they've covered every level, but it should be helpful for the first two worlds or so.

This is what I'm sure I'll be forced to do if the guide I want doesn't exist. I was just hoping that instead of having to get on a computer, look up a guide, and navigate to the right section 20 separate times, I could have a single sheet of paper I could just consult quickly.
