Make A Pattern: To make a pattern, rough cut around each triangle, then, using a thin layer of glue, adhere each one to a thin piece of recycled cardboard. Allow the glue to dry completely, then carefully cut out each triangle as straight as possible. Trace to use.
Pattern making tips:
White or clear glue works best, but stick glue will do in a pinch.
The regular glue method produces patterns that are strong enough to use over and over and stored for other activities.
These patterns can be used for paper, fabric, wood, felt, etc..
