Can't believe I wasted all those brads

So after I recommended leaving more space between the strings to avoid buying 24 brads, I tried it that way.  And now I'm mad at myself for not doing that before!

Only doing 3 strips of ribbon each direction instead of 5 means you only need 5 brads instead of 13.  A-Ha!

Here are the boards I whipped up tonight.  I couldn't quite do 10 - I ran out of ribbon and my hand hurts from squeezing the staple gun, but I finished 7.  The small ones are 11x14, and I made 2 16x20 toiles with leftovers from Bonnie's curtains:
