More Rewards Kit Inspiration and a Tutorial!!

Hello...it's Tuesday! And I am back to share my last layout using American Crafts Chap Collection. I must say, it is just the ultimate BOY collection! Just perfect for playing hard, DIRTY, rough, and tumble BOYS! Here is a look at my last layout...

U, Dirt, and a Crate Equals FUN!

How about that chevron stripe I have going on at the bottom of my layout? It kinda looks patchwork-ish to me, no? Would you like to know how I pieced it together? Here is a quick tutorial...

Step 1: Cut a 1 1/2" strip of patterned paper.

Step 2: Now cut the strip into 1 1/2" squares.

Step 3: Cut each square from tip to tip creating 2 triangles.
Step 4: Arrange triangles in a straight line on background paper.
Step 5: Arrange more triangles under your first line of triangles, making sure the straight sides touch. The tip of the triangle should be directly under where the 2 sides of the top row of triangles meet...make sense? See pic below...
Step 6: REPEAT! Repeat with different patterns to give your background a LOVELY effect!!
I would LOVE to see if you give it a try.
Now, we need your input! We are dying to know if you LOVE your Rewards Kit as much as we do??
