The only thing more fun than collecting stickers is creating a sticker collection you've designed yourself. Doing so is simple: Choose images from wrapping paper or magazines and cut out along outlines, or punch shapes from decorative papers using a craft punch. Once backed with glue and allowed to dry, they can be remoistened later and stuck on notebooks, lunch bags, or stationery—just about anything. Best of all, your kids will love them, so discover and recreate the step-by-step tutorial below.

How to do it

Part 1

Step 1

In a bowl, mix together white Elmer's Washable School Glue with an equal amount of white vinegar until you have a thin, milky liquid. Using a small paint brush or a pastry brush, smear the back of the paper sparingly with the glue mixture.

Step 2

Allow it to dry, then apply a second coat, and allow it to dry again. Next, use scissors or a craft punch to cut out desired shapes. Although the glue is nontoxic, it doesn't taste very good, so for a mass sticking, use a dampened sponge to moisten the back of stickers.
