These are being made by a family member of neighbors who is in the 'carcel' mainly because of a drug problem. We are selling them to help pay the legal fees, gas for visits, materials and personal items he needs or wants. He's also making these rather than just staring at the walls. Seems like a good way to occupy your time. From an ad with fotos on Tomzap I found a couple in Barra that wants 2 or 3 so they will have first choice. Heading over there later today.
I was totally amazed when I first saw them and had no idea how they were done. I finally found how with Google. You just have to make many hundreds of the little triangles and stick them together. Some things like the flowers have to be glued. Sounds simple from the video below but you still need to be able to visualize what you are going to make. The pieces of colored paper cost more because the family has to buy it. The other two pieces are made from magazines.
