Chevrons Just Wanna Have Fun!

I had been eyeballing this tutorial for folded chevrons on my pinterest boards for days and then happened to notice the current challenge at Frosted Designs is...CHEVRONS!!!  It was just the push I needed to jump in and give it a go.  I followed the tutorial basically with one big difference.  I wanted smaller chevrons.  Her tutorial shows a 2" thick chevron and I wanted one that was only 1" so I cut all the numbers in half.  Not only did I start with a 12"x1" strip instead, but after some trouble shooting figured out I also needed to make my marks/snips at alternating 1/2" marks instead of 1".  So keep that in mind if you alter the width of your initial strip, you need to make your alternating marks/cuts smaller/bigger with the same ratio.  :)

The paper line is more of my My Mind's Eye My Girl line (with bits of the Boy Crazy line as well).  I'm trying to make use of every single sheet of that because I just LOVE it!  You'll notice it in the layout I posted just before this one as well as the Thing 1 and Thing 2 layout a few posts before that!  :)  I still have enough for 2-3 more layouts easy!
