Hundreds of stickers for less than a quarter – it sounds too good to be true, doesn't it? Give this recipe for homemade stickers a try, and you can make it happen.
Difficulty: Easy
Time Required: 30 minutes to an hour, plus drying time

Here's How:

  1. Cut out interesting pictures from magazines.
  2. Then, combine a packet of gelatin with one-half cup of water.
  3. Stir to dissolve the gelatin completely.
  4. Now, use a paintbrush to apply the gelatin to the back of each picture.
  5. Allow the pictures to dry wet side up on a piece of waxed paper.
  6. Then, to use your stickers, just lick the back of each one; and apply. Easy and fun!

Tips:

  1. The small box of unflavored gelatin usually contains four packets – enough to make four batches of stickers.
  2. For more fun, try turning computer printables or your own artwork into stickers.
  3. Stickers made from magazine pages will not be acid-free, and therefore may not be well suited to scrapbook use.

What You Need

  • Unflavored gelatin
  • Magazine pictures
  • A bowl
  • Measuring cups
  • A paintbrush
  • Scissors
  • Waxed paper
