    Wow, what a compliment that you made these based on my project. Thank you!

    Did you use the download able template?

    Melissa Buwembo replied 7 years ago

    I love these guys, Sarah! So perfect and easy to make. 

    I used the template as a guide and just sketched it out onto a piece of 8.5" x 11" paper. They're probably a little smaller than the ones you made, but the template is great for scaling it to any size. Thanks again!
