I used dies to create the entire project but you could create a template for the triangles and cut them free-hand. I also think you could create decorative edges with scissors or whatever dies you have around. For the letters, I also used dies. Those might be harder to draw free-hand and cut out but if you kept them simple you should be able to do it. I purchased the letter dies at Kat Scrappiness. They are a little pricey but I’ve created so many different things with them I think they were worth it.
