So I was feeling kinda "blingy"....can you tell?!  Actually I bought these rhinestones quite awhile ago thinking they were individual, but they were actually a strip of them and I wasn't sure what I was going to do with them.  I saw someone else out in blogland use them this way, so the light bulb went off, and here you have it!
