Make your Own Paper Piercing Template- Tutorial

My first tutorial.....bear with me.
Yesterday as I was blogging, someone in blog world (I can't remember who) mentioned the cool Ornare Piercing Templates available at Ellen Hutson's online store. Of course, I rushed over and bought one. (I am so impressionable.) I love paper piercing and wanted to try one of these cool designs and it was within my budget. I also got the Noir Black Palette Hybrid Ink Pad and refill. I "needed" this item! {wink}
Today as I was finishing my entry for the Sketch This Cards contest I decided my card needed a little piercing and I absolutely couldn't wait for the template to arrive. So, I made my own. I have enough swirls and flourishes, so why not?

I started with a sheet of Write-On transparency film, a StaZon black ink pad (which desparately needs reinked) and my favorite Autumn Leaves Rhonna Farrer flourish. I stamped the flourish and cut out the square it was on.

All I did then was place it where I wanted and poke the piercing tool through the transparency.

I stamped 2 of the same flourish so I could make them go both directions. All I had to do was turn the other one over and use it that way.

And I have reused the template again and again. I have other flourishes to try. But first I have to reink my StaZon Pad!

I'll be back later to give away those Snap Stamps so ya'll come back now ya hear??
Have a great weekend, friends~
