When I make cards, I frequently use foam dots (affiliate link) 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.
"A friend is a treasure more precious than gold." Happy 30th birthday Courteney!
Expect to see many more dotted Stickles backgrounds from me in the future!
