Tuesday Studio - How to Make Your Own Stickers

Here is a simple tuturial to make your very own handmade stickers.

I found this on homemadesimple.com and it is super easy. 

You can basically "turn any material, from magazine pages and maps to giftwrap and photos into your own custom lick-and-stick stickers with our simple recipe." How cool is that? Enjoy:)
MATERIALS 
1 gelatine packet, sugar-free or unflavoured (small envelope, about 12 ml or 2 1/2 tsp)
Bowl 
45 mL (3 tbsp) boiling water 
Assorted paper (letters from magazines, pictures from catalogues, maps, scraps, giftwrap, flyers...)
Scissors 
Paintbrush 
Spoon

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Cut pieces of paper into shapes (Tip: Print your own photos on your home printer, then paint the front of the photo with a decoupage sealer).
  2. Empty the packet of gelatine into a bowl. Add 45 mL (3 tbsp) boiling water and stir until dissolved. If crafting with kids, allow mixture to cool for a few minutes before painting.
  3. Paint the dissolved gelatine onto backs of prepared papers with a small paintbrush, then let the paper dry.
  4. When the stickers are dry, just lick the gelatine-coated side and stick to your desired surface.

Have a creative day,

Patricia
