triangles or banners or both (Moxie Fab, CFC)

Couple cards to share with you that use triangles as banners for some easy graduation cards.  I had "the sky's the limit" in mind on these...

Little detour here... You know how to hand-cut triangles that are all the same size easily?  Flip your PP over and draw yourself a grid like the one on this card.

Let's say you want your triangles 2" high and 1" wide.  Draw horizontal lines 2" apart from each other then make marks at 1", 2", 3", etc. along the first line.  Then make marks at 1/2", 1 1/2", 2 1/2", etc along the second horizontal line.  Then connect the dots and cut along the lines. Get it? Pencil lines are on the reverse so who cares ;)

Joining the Trendy Triangle fun at Moxie Fab World.  Didn't know I had such a thang for triangles. Don't remember it being that way in high school math class...  And I squeaked a button on the first one, just hope it's CAS enough for CASual Fridays Buttons challenge.

Appreciate your visit.
