1. Adhere four strips of 50s Kitchen plain papers and Sunny Polka Dot Washi Tape to scrap paper with ATG adhesive.


2. Cut into squares.


3. Trim each of the squares in half diagonally, alternating the direction of the cuts each time as illustrated in this diagram.


4. Cut Staples brand sticker paper into 1/8" strips.


5. Adhere the triangles to a 3x12" black border strip. Separate each triangle with the 1/8" sticker strip.


6. Trim off overhanging triangles and sticker paper ribbons from the black paper backing.


7. Create a layout with the quilted border strip.
