Sometimes... Want is the mother of invention....
I finally ordered one from Stamping on the Plateau. I bought a flower one because it looked like I could use it for a lot of different projects.
The problem is.... I really wanted one with random dots. She didn't have that one and I have no clue who I saw using it online, so I don't even know the name of it. The other problem is that, as usual, my wants are bigger than my budget. I really did not need to spend another 7 to 10 dollars on a stencil.
Want is sometimes the mother of invention.... I took a plastic box that a Tim Holtz die came in and cut the front off. Then I used my Japanese Screw punch and a 16th" punch to make random holes in the plastic. The results are shown on the left. I think I'll add more holes tomorrow. I may take it to my dad... I bet he has some cool tools we could use to punch more and different holes.
