Usually, I put rhinestuds on paper, individually, with an imaginesce hotfix tool, but this time I decided to brush them into a rhinestone template so I could apply them all at once. Worked out so well (it's a good thing since I ordered thousands from Ali Express).
I found a silhouette of Mickey's head and made myself a rhinestone template. It was fast and easy to get this done. I was finished in less than 10 minutes.
