(These triangles are paired on ONE (1) end with the Aqua 1 7/8″ x 3 3/8″ rectangles.)**Aqua:**Cut FOUR (4) 1 7/8″ x 3 3/8″ rectangles. (These are paired with the Jade 1 7/8″ x

3 3/8″ rectangles. They’re also paired on ONE (1) end with the results of the Aqua 3 1/4″ square.)**Jade:**Cut ONE (1) 3 1/4″ square. Then cut the square diagonally, corner-to-corner, TWO (2) times. Will yield FOUR (4) triangles. (These triangles will flank ONE (1) end of the Jade 1 7/8″ x 3 3/8″ rectangles which will partially create FOUR (4) Flying Geese.)**Jade:**Cut ONE (1) 3 1/4″ square. Then cut the square diagonally, corner-to-corner, TWO (2) times. Will yield FOUR (4) triangles. (These triangles are paired on ONE (1) end with the Jade 1 7/8″ x 3 3/8″ rectangles.)**Jade:**Cut FOUR (4) 1 7/8″ x 3 3/8″ rectangles. (These are paired with the Aqua 1 7/8″ x
