Paper piercing templates - cheap!!

I know this no new invention, and many posts have probably been done about it, but I'm still kind of new to all of this and wanted to share anyway. Hopefully this helps someone who has not seen it yet!
Anyway, I had seen the paper piercing templates for sale in a couple of places - they were basically plastic canvas squares that you can buy to make coasters. (Side note: personally NOT a fan of plastic canvas)
I have been wanting to add some paper piercing to my cards, but was worried about it all lining up and being perfectly spaced and was going to buy one of these coasters to try. While in the isle, I discovered the full sheets of plastic canvas and decided to purchase one of them instead. I actually bought one that had smaller holes/squares (not sure of correct terminology here). These spaces are smaller in the sheet I bought.
Then I simply took the sheet and cut it down to templates for A2 size, 3x3, 4x4, 5x5, etc. You get it...............now I have templates that fit all the cards sizes I make and I can simply place the template over the cardstock to pierce and not even have to move it!!
All for only $ .49!!!
