Hi everybody! I thought I'd write up a little tutorial on how I make stickers from my printable PDF sticker files. These are great when you want to save a little money, don't mind a little crafting, and don't have a cutting machine (if you do have a Silhouette Portrait or Cameo the PDF files probably won't work for you but you can purchase PNG & JPG files from Erin Bradley Designs and use those to make your own sticker sheets).
To start, you will need the following items:
Full sheets of 8.5" x 11" sticker paper (I order mine from onlinelabels.com).
Planner (or whatever you want to decorate!)
The process is pretty simple. I print the PDF onto the full size labels and then simply cut each graphic down to size. I like to cut shapes like the squares, rectangles, flags and patterned borders to their exact sizes, but I leave a little bit of white space around the graphic icons (this makes them much easier to cut and I personally love the look!).
Below is a peek at how all the graphics from this PDF looked after I trimmed them to size.
It is really just as easy as that! Print & trim! I think I paid around $10-15 total for my label paper but it was for a pack of 100 so it should last a good amount of time. I also always print on the best or highest setting my printer offers. It does use up more ink but I really love the way the color comes out. I used a Canon Pixma to print up all the designs in these pictures.
