Looking over your designs, what are the strengths of the best design? Today we will be cutting the pieces out and then tracing them to glass so we can begin cutting them out. MISTAKES WILL HAPPEN and bloody fingers will too. I recommend that you buy a box of bandaids and keep them in your locker – perhaps go in with a few people for that box.
