What You Need:
Go through magazines and tear out all pages that have bright patterns. A lot of ads are really good. I also had a few issues with home magazines that has pictures of flowers and fabrics that work well. Even if you don't think a picture or pattern is big enough, save it because you'll have smaller parts to fill.
I cut a 1.5" x 6" strip out of cardboard and used that and a round cutter to cut the magazines. I quickly realized I'm not very good at doing that in a straight line, so all the strips were turning out to be different sizes. I couldn't think of another way to cut them, without using a pen, which could show up after cutting. So after the strips were all done, I used a paper cutter to trim them all down to 1"x 6" strips.

Hers came out a little better than the first one, I got the chevrons to be straight**
