  • You can use cutouts from magazines instead of laser printed or photocopied images.
  • The images I used here were from googling for clip-arts online and these are free to use images.

Instructions for How to Make Your Own Stickers

homemade stickersStep 5 of Sticker-Making
  1. Have your desired images black and white or colour photocopied or laser print on a black and white or colour laser printer.
  2. Trim the photocopied/laser printed images.
  3. Place it face up on a flat working surface.
  4. Cut out a piece of clear cellophane tape slightly bigger than the size of the image.
  5. Cover the image with the clear cellophane tape and trim around the image
  6. Use your thumb to rub over the clear tape.
  7. Soak the tape in water for a minute.
  8. Remove the paper from the tape by gently rubbing on it in the water. The soaked paper will come off easily leaving the image on the tape.
  9. Leave tape to dry. 
  10. Once dried, attach to your card or scrapbooking paper. If the tape is not sticky enough, just use a glue stick to dab on the tape for stickiness.

If it's a black and white image and you want to add some colour, just add glitter glue to the sticky side of the image on the tape.

But nowadays, you can easily print or photocopy in colour. For the above, I print out the images on 80 gsm office paper as a black and white print on a laser printer as I ran out of colour inks.

This is very fun to do with children. They just love it.
