"I did use paper but I pulled it out after trimming so I could do it as I watched football (GO PATRIOTS) and it did make it harder to keep them the proper size. I honestly never think to use starch but I do have some. Too late now, however."

Your rainbow mystery is great! Did you use the little pinwheels yet? I can't find them in the block, but I never would have imagined how your original blocks could turn into these!
