Commissioned wedding banner

Now this is a new one for me.  I have made a couple of these banners before, but the most Triangles I have ever used has been 8.  The wording request for this banner was 'Congratulations Kayley & Tommy' with a picture of Mr and Mrs potato head at each end and then of course I have to put a space between the first 2 words.  That makes 30 triangles.  Cutting and making and decorating was no problem, managed to do it all in a day, but threading all this onto ribbon was an absolute nightmare!!  If I am ever asked to do another I will be splitting it into 2 I think!!  

Here are lots of photos for you to see but it was impossible to take a picture of the hole thing I am afraid, And please excuse the marks on my dining table, It was the only thing long enough to spread it out on but even then it was still in sections!!

the triangle at each end of the banner, the image is a colouring picture off the net! coloured with pro markers
