So, in honor of the holidays and Star Wars, I decided to use my newly acquired Exacto knife and these templates to decorate.

OH MAN. Let me just warn you, the results are A W E S O M E. But these little boogers are time consuming, to say the least!

Not bad, not bad. Yoda is definitely my favorite! You can see in the picture that he's laying on top of a fantastic green background. I think it's perfect. And now what to do with them? Well, that thought is still in process actually. I'm thinking of framing them to adorn my oh so needy apartment walls. 

What do you think?
