Making Stickers With Digital Stamps

Sticker set all stickers When my kids were little, they absolutely LOVED to have band-aids on. I noticed, while walking down the "band-aid" isle the other day, it appears they now sell band-aids just for that purpose, LOL  

When the kids got a bit older, the boys seemed to still like band-aids because they made sure they always had at least one scrap or cut to be covered. My daughter graduated to stickers though. She LOVED any little picture that was sticky on one side. She also loved them everywhere, even on the furniture, sigh. Raise you hand if you have a child who has made a sticker display out of an unapproved piece of furniture or wall!

As I reminisced, the thought occurred to me that I could make some stickers with the most adorable squirrels and rabbits I know, the Digital Stamp Oasis images.

Sticker set close up inside book  Look at all those stickers I made out of one sheet of adhesive paper I bought from Papertrey Ink. I was able to create 5 of the images in 2 sizes. You can click on any of the photos to enlarge them and see more detail.

Not only are they cute and fun stickers, but the little girl can color and personalize them herself. How fun is THAT!

Once she is finished coloring and showing off her masterpieces to her parents, where will she put them? She really needs a place to keep them other than the walls or furniture, lol. Something made just for the stickers so she can look at them whenever she wants to.

I decided to make a sticker book keep her stickers. I also covered a colored pencil box to match the book so she would have something to color the stickers with. You can see a bit of the inside of the book in the previous pictures. Also, you will notice that I colored one of the images to be the very first one in the book. Here are some pictures of the sticker book set.

Now all I need to do is decide who to give this fun set to, LOL. Hugs, Sandy O
