If you have a creative child around, there are many great craft supplies to keep them busy, and keep you worry-free. Keep the right supplies on hand, and crafting with your kid can be fun and help you build memories that can last well into their lives.

Types of Stickers

Stickers may be the easiest craft supply to entertain kids. They’re easy to use and can be very beautiful! While stickers can be fun on their own, there are so many fun and creative ways to use them out there. Check out a few of our favorites.

Teach kids about shapes and let them create wonderful paintings with stickers! Using stickers as a kind of “stencil negative” is a fun way to take children’s art to the next level. Use alphabet stickers to spell out words, or different shapes to create unique artwork. Find shapes to match seasons and create personal cards!

From Address Labels to Decorative Stickers

Cardmaking, Crafts, Mod Podge, Paper Crafts, Scrapbooking No Comments

By Paper Crafts Contributor, Lauren Romano.

I have more address labels than I know what to do with – I haven’t ordered them in years, they just come in the mail and keep on arriving. I hate to throw them out, but they’ve gotten to the point where they’ve now formed a pile. I needed to do something with them and realized that I could easily revamp them to make stickers for cards, envelopes, notes and various other items that I was already using stickers on.

What you’ll need:

Address labels
Mod Podge for paper
Colored cardstock
Scissors
Large Self-Adhesive Rhinestone

Bow punch
Embellishments

Step 1: Trim the address label if you’d like. You can usually make two stickers out of one address label. I was using a very wide one so I only slightly trimmed one edge.

Step 2: Use the Mod Podge to glue a piece of colored cardstock to the non-sticky side of the label, then trim to size. Make sure not to get glue on the sides of the label so the backing will be able to come off.

Step 3: Cut a thin sliver of another color cardstock – punch a bow out of the same color.

Step 4: Adhere the sliver of cardstock across the center of the label then glue the bow onto the center of it.

Step 5: Run your nail over the edges of the label to remove any glue so when you need to remove the backing, you’ll be able to do so without a problem.

Step 6: Attach the rhinestone to the center of the bow. Or any embellishment you prefer. You may want to use a strong glue to attach it so it adds some extra reinforcement, especially if you are mailing the envelope that the sticker is going on.

Mini Alpha Stickers

Cardmaking, Paper Crafts 3 Comments

By Scrapbook & Paper Crafts Contributor Jennifer, from the blog “So Many Products, So Little Time”.

I love to use Mini Alpha Stickers in my card marking.  I have a huge collection of various sizes, colors and fonts and I love that so many companies now create these tiny alphas.  Not only do they come in black and white, but they are now available in every color of the rainbow, so they can match any project.  If you aren’t a card maker, they are also great for journaling on a layout or in a mini album.

To make this card:

  • Create a card base from white cardstock or use a premade card base.  You can also make the card base from the patterned paper – if it’s a two sided paper, you end up with a colorful inside to the card. I used My Little Shoebox “Green” Collection papers & stickers.
  • Affix journaling sticker and tree sticker.  Cut another tree from patterned paper and adhere using pop dots for dimension.
  • Add jewels to the tree trunks.
  • Use the Mini Alpha Stickers to spell the sentiment.
  • If you do not have this paper collection don’t worry.  You can use other stickers and papers and just use my card as a sketch to get you started.

  Clean and Simple Cards

One of several card styles often used by those who create cards is clean and simple, abbreviated often as CAS.  This style is defined as being uncluttered with a lot of open areas, one main image that is the focus of the card, limited embellishments and layers.  It also, has to be quick to make and easy to remake.  We often find ourselves in the difficult position of creating a card with very little time to do it and this often occurs doing the holidays.
