diy {make your own stickers}


So today’s project is SUPER EASY….as in my 3 year old can do this. It isn’t so much a unique idea as it is sharing a fun crafting tool. When given a few hours alone some women go to the spa….I walk the aisles of craft stores and Lowes. On one particular night I was slowly examining random products and saw a sticker maker. It was $9.99 and I am too cheap to spend that on stickers….and I know that everything is 50% off at Hobby Lobby at some p0int. So, I just made a mental note to watch for it to go on sale (there are also 40% off coupons available). Well, it was finally on sale and I picked one up. I wasn’t too sure how it would work, but now I want to turn EVERYTHING into a sticker. It is addicting and fun.



XYRON 1.5 inch create-a-sticker

random fabric and paper bits

It is so simple. You put something in and then pull it out. Hello crafting fun!

When you pull it out you have to rub and press the top. This makes the sticky stuff only go on the back of the paper/fabric and the rest adheres to the top clear sheet.

Peel the top off and there you go.

I went sticker crazy. And a little hand kept getting in the way when I tried to get a picture to show you my stickers.

There I go with my super awesome studio photography skills…white bucket upside down in front of a window πŸ™‚

That’s better.

For $5.00 it is a fun little gadget with lots of options!

  • Lys - Love this! Thanks for sharing, what a fun gadget!

  • Sarah Pratt - I LOVE my Xyron! Had one for years! One of those small wonders you wondered how you could ever live without.

  • Cristy - Love the lightsaber wielding Jedi stickers, could you scan those and make them into tattoos on the Silhouette? We have very similar little figures around here, too. Cool tool.

  • Margaret - I LOVE the Xyron! I can’t imagine the fun that must come from the power of the Xyron mixed with the power of the Silhouette!

  • the whyte house - So cute, ashley!! My family and I will be making a day trip down there saturday to surprise an old Union friend before he goes to Iraq. Maybe I’ll finally get to go by Rhema. Can’t wait to see how everything has grown out there!

  • Amanda - Love sticker makers! $5 bargain for sure.

  • amber - So fun. This week has been soooo great:). I love sneaking over in the morning to see what’s next…yesterday’s was such an awesome idea. Especially for a girl who has trouble remembering what she did yesterday! Yikes. And the sticker maker must come to my house. I do have a 4 year old with a sticker obsession…

  • ashley jensen - Gah you could make a sticker out of anything!! I would definitely spend 5 bucks on one. Then again it all depends on how much the replacement tape is too. i have no problem using a 40%off coupon on a $5 item! Oh and I dont do spa’s either. Antique stores or hobby lobby!

  • Nicole - oh no…I sense a new addiction coming on. my boys will LOVE this when I start turning everything into stickers!! thanks for sharing!

  • Jen - I sense a trip to Hobby Lobby in my future…cute!

  • cailan - Thanks much for the tip – I’ll be on the look-out for the next 40% off coupon!

  • Jessica - My hubby got me one of these when we were dating ( bc I’ll lOve anything
    From hob lob) and I still lOve it 6 years later! I’ve never thought of
    Fabric though! Great idea!!

  • Charity - I bought one of these on clearance at target a few years ago and I love it. It is addicting!

  • Jenny Joy - Okay. It’s official. I gotta have one of those!

  • Amanda D - Ah, the Xyron Sticker Maker. I am glad you are sharing the excitement of this beauty with everyone!! πŸ™‚

  • JulieB - We are going to hobby lobby like right now! This was a complete geeking out moment. The one thing I miss about working was my hour long lunch break that I would usually spend at hobby lobby alone! I totally would like that more than a day at the spa!

  • Georgia - Oh yeah, I am using my next 40% off coupon on this! Hey everyone you can sign up for email updates and they email the specials and coupons to you.

  • Susan Williams - did a video on this exact sticker maker a couple days ago. Go check it out if you need/want a video to show you how to do it (as opposed to pictures). Looks really fun!

  • Paulina J! - I have a Xyron Wishblade, which is just like the Silhouette, just a little less fancy. I LOVE it!! I haven’t been able to play around with it as much as I would like to since we are in the process of moving, but now I want that sticker maker too! I made a stencil with the Wishblade and will be stenciling some curtains.

  • nicole @ deliajude - i love my mini xyron!

  • cynthia - I bought that lil’ gizmo & never used it. Now I have inspiration to!

    Thank you! πŸ˜‰

  • Jessica Ellertson - I love my “x” as I call it. Watch for refills at Walmart and even Office Depot.. sometimes they are cheaper than at craft stores.

  • Kate @ Songs Kate Sang - So fun!! EEK! I see this in my 40% future!

  • Jodie_Velour - I do the same thing in my free time. Hours to peruse craft stores is my idea of bliss… as long as I have ca$h to buy $tuff, that i$. πŸ™‚ I don’t have one of these, although I’ve seen them before — but now I want one. It looks like so much fun!

    I’ve been coming here for a while now and I just love it here. It’s beautiful and you’re funny and I love seeing all of your diy stuff. Everything you touch turns to gold. (Especially your bedroom! Good gravy, that thing is awesome!! I’ll be putting chicken wire on my walls when we redo ours, thanks to your inspiration. ‘Course I’d be happy to put chicken wire on everything in my house!) πŸ™‚
