Another use for your Rhinestone tool: Stitching templates!

So, while visiting Archivers the other day, I kept looking at the stitching templates they had with longing. But there is always so much I want there, that I am always asking myself, "How can I make that?" And here is my idea, use the SCAL2 Rhinestone tool with very small rhinestone, spaced further apart. Draw the rhinestones with your markers on the back of your project with your markers and punch the holes with a needle or paper piercer.
Then just stitch! Here is a picture of my paper from the right side after I have pierced it, and before stitching.
And a close up of the stitching. Sweet!
I am making this card to submit for the Bug Card Challenge, at Enfys' blog, Going Buggy!
Supplies used: Close to My Heart Cranberry Ink, and February Word Puzzle Stamp Set, Red Bandanna paper (maker unknown), ribbon, Recollections rhinestones. The sentiment says, "I followed my heart...and it led me to you!"
And if you are a Cricut Gypsy or DS user, I have an idea of how you can use those for rhinestones and a stitching template too! Just stop back for my next post, coming soon!
