How to make a bunch of Pendant triangles in 2 easy cuts! A tutorial.

Hi! So, as we all know those banner/pendant thingies are WAY popular right now, and who am I to not do the popular thing?
I'm hip! I'm with it!
(hopefully if I say it enough it will come true LOL!!
If you confess it you possess it right? 
So I am confessing with the best of them!! Tee Hee!!!)
ANYWHO........
I made myself one yesterday that I totally love but the great news for you is that I was shown (by my super genius husband who downloads how to do stuff like Neo in the Matrix I swear) how to cut all the triangles at once! WOOT!  Here is how easy it is....

Step 1.
Cut a strip from salvage to salvage equal to the height you want your triangles to be.  I wanted mine to be 6 inches wide and 6 inches tall so I cut my strip 6 inches wide.
Step 2
Fold the fabric strip accordion style (like a paper fan) equal to the width you want. Remember I wanted 6x6 so my folds were 6 inches wide.
Step 3
fold the stack in half again
Step 4
Cut from corner to corner lengthwise

Tada! Lots of triangles that were super easy to cut out! YAY!!
