Ever wanted to make a little decal that you can stick anywhere, from your notebook at school to a card for your best friend’s birthday? Well, now you can! Making stickers is a fun way to personalize anything and everything you own, and the good thing is that they're really easy to make!
● Packing tape
● Images from glossy magazines
● A bowl of warm water
First, cut out interesting images from glossy magazines. The type of ink used in these will help keep the image on the sticker when it's placed in water. Make sure they're not too big; then they would be hard to place and tape.
Use strips of packing tape to completely cover each image. When an image is covered, press down on it to get rid of air bubbles and try smoothing it with your nail to adhere the image. Then cut around the edges so that there is no extra tape around the image.
Fill a bowl with warm water and place the stickers in it. You'll want to wait around ten minutes so that the paper begins to dissolve from the tape on its own. Then you can easily peel off the rest of the paper.
Remove the stickers from the water and lay them sticky side up on a surface. Let them dry.
Throw away the pulpy paper that is left in the bowl instead of pouring it down the drain so that it doesn't clog anything.
Your stickers should now be dry. You're all done! Now it's time to sticker up!
P.S. Personalizing backtoschool supplies will make having to take notes extra fun!
