Silhouette Tutorial

Just logging in to post a quick tutorial for how I created this Silhouette file on my favorite layout this month. I designed some triangle strips in the Silhouette Studio software, then used pieces from the 34th Street kit and Murray Hill add-on to complete the design.
First, create a triangle freehand using the polygon tool. To make my triangle symmetrical, I just eyeballed it lining the cursor with the gridlines.

Next, I copy and pasted that shape repeatedly.
After you've drawn your row of triangles, highlight them all, then click the offset icon.
Last, simply weld the shape together.
Hope this helps and let me know if you have any questions!
