I was given a massive box full of craft items from my wonderful and generous crafty Mother-in-Law which she got from a lady who used to run a craft business before she sadly passed away.

In said box was a small box (pictured below) with lots of small metal triangles with prongs... I can't for the life of me work out what they are... has anyone of you wonderful crafty people got any idea at all?

They are from Austria is about all I can discern (where the crafty lady who passed away got alot of her things from)...

I would assume, they`re Polish?  (or something from taht region- it sounds like that on the box)... I would guess they`re something like staples for the message board ... who knows, maybe even for furniture? well, I don`t know obviously Smiley but I had my fun guessing Cheesy

In Ukraine, similar-looking things are badges that students get at highschool graduation...

The box said Delta, so I went to their website and looked around. I didn't see anything like that, but they have an e-mail address, you could write and ask them.

Good luck,

I would hazard that these are for attaching fabric to wood etc, so that there are lots of anchor points to spread the load and the fabric doesn't rip (like the things you use to attach shadecloth to decks).  Failing that, they could be for holding mitred pieces of wood together (one corner in each bit of wood).
