    Hey Bre, love the weekend projects. And posting the pdf instructions along with the video is great.

    Any chance the pdf could get smaller, though? Right now, it’s 40.5MB, and only 5 pages long. I understand that the images are high resolution, but there’s room for improvement there, right?

    The video itself is only 45MB.

    I optimized the file and now it’s 607kb and I really can’t tell the difference between the 607kb and the 40.5 meg one. Thanks for the heads up!
