Another Use for Foam Dots

When I make cards, I frequently use foam dots to pop up an element on the card.  Here's one of many sheets of dots that live in my adhesives basket.  

Years ago, I used to throw out the sheet when I used up all the dots.  Then I realized I should save the unused parts to cut apart to make pop-up strips for larger items.  Now I've discovered another purpose for used-up sheets of foam dots.

They make a perfect template for rows of Stickles!  Here's a card I made using that technique.  Check out the perfectly even dots of Stickles on the background cardstock.

Happy 30th birthday Courteney!

Expect to see many more dotted Stickles backgrounds from me in the future!
