For Christmas I asked for some loose rhinestones and transfer tape. I wasn't sure at the time what I was going to do about a template but I do my best creative thinking when I am half asleep so last night it came to me--just use the printer and a sharpie! So, that's what I did! I typed up my message, used a sharpie so that it would bleed through the paper and made dots on it, and then flipped it over and started laying down the stones. The stones I got were 3 mm and I just used regular tweezers to lay them down. I wasn't sure if it was going to be straight or even legible while I was working but I was pretty happy with it when I was finished.

|It was easier to dump several out. Hard to believe I would have a Pooh Bear plate at my house!|
