Hi Everyone! I hope everyone is wonderful. I spent this weekend going through some of my office supplies, and I found a bunch of packs of labels. Then it happened…the idea!
I don’t know why it took me so long to do this. I love stickers.. I mean LOVE stickers. I have a wicked collection.
Lately, I have been sealing packages and letters with them but I wanted something more personalized without spending a bunch of money. Then lightning struck, I can make my own!!
So, if your like me your might have packages of labels around collecting dust. I always have leftovers from yard sales and organizational sprees, or if you burn your own CD’s, you might have those CD Label making programs,they usually leave you with left over sticker parts. I keep everything I might be able to use later on (no, I haven’t reached hoarder status…yet).
I kept the CD label thingy because I thought I could use the round part or the thin CD case labels.
So lets make some stickers…
You want to start with a background.
I used Dylusions Ink spray and sprayed the labels. You could totally use ink pads or markers. Once covered let them dry.
Next, Use a lighter color stamp pad to stamp a pattern onto the background. This part is fun, you can do a million different things.
Next, More stamping..Use letters, pictures, whatever your heart desires. I was making Thank You & Sugar Beet Crafts Stickers.
You can use a white or metallic pen to make some fun highlights…
Here are some more fun ideas…stamps and markers. The background was done by rubbing the labels with a stamp pad, stamping and filling in with markers.
Here is a fun way to use the thin strips of sticker for the side of the CD case…
Doodle across the lines…
Then remove for an awesome sticker!
Use it to decorate a card..
I am already totally addicted. It is a fun way to add some pizzazz to any project. It’s also super sweet to get a personalized handmade anything.
This would be so fun to do with kids, and you have no guilt because you get to use up some extra’s lying around. The environment gives you a big hug for that!
I hope this gets your imagination going!
What will you make?
I would love to see your stickers!

4 out of 5 read-ologists recommend this WordPress.com site. ups and downs of writer's insanity and day to day life. I will write whatever makes the voices happy, for a writer that ignores her inner voices is merely a mental breakdown waiting to happen. Keeping the voices happy and creating new worlds for them to play in is my main goal.
