I was going to wait a few months to share this but I’ve had lots of planner girls ask me how I make my own sticker sheets in the last week, it’s very simple and actually quite fun.
You will need
A computer or iPhone
Adhesive paper/sticker paper/ normal A4 paper
Stanley knife /pen knife/ scissors
Drop box account or app
Now if you haven’t printed stickers before its this easy. Hop on your comp or phone and literally just google whatever icon or clip art you are after for instance “pink WordPress icon”
Then click on the “images tab.
You can then save your chosen pictures to your computer or device. There are thousands of icons and clip art images so get creative 😀.
Okay now I use my iPhone to make my sheets using Microsoft word but I think it would be easier on a computer but either way it’s possible to achieve great results. So open word up once you have all your chosen icons and images.
Now click on blank document and it should take you to a blank page.
Now depending what you are using either click “insert image” using a computer or if your using iPhone click on the A and pen symbol in the top right hand corner and it should come up with this menu
Click on the home tab and it will show these options above click on insert then picture in the subtab. It should take you to your photo gallery you can then pick the image of your chose like this.
Now we need to decrease the size of the image which I presume most know if not its just the little dots around the square border of the image move the corner ones in to make almost as small as possible now zoom into the picture using your thumb and index finger and swiping inwards simultaneously now you can see a more realistic size of your image and fix if neccasary ie smaller or bigger. Now tap image until a black option tab appears then click copy.
Copy image then paste and move to selected spot on page I personally like vertical rows but do whatever is most functional to you perhaps doing one of each icon you use weekly in a row.
Repeat until you have desired amount of icons then repeat the insert picture steps for the next image then again resize move then copy and paste until you have desired number of images and icons
Once you are happy with your layout it’s time to Save make sure you always save otherwise all your hard work will be a waste.
Now again depending on your chosen device will be how you print. For computer users quite easy just select print option straight from word make sure you put your adhesive paper in “sounds silly to remind you but I totally forget sometimes as I always have standard a4 in there ready to go” page size should be set to A4 for this also and voila you have printer your very first sticker sheet.
Now iPhone users we need to click on the dot icon in the top right hand corner
It will then come up with this menu
click on send attachment
Then select PDF
we now want to send this copy to our Dropbox account
Select save to Dropbox it will ask to give your file a title I generally name it after whatever theme I’ve gone for that layout. Now we have saved it’s time to open up the file in our drop box app
click on the box and arrow icon in the top right hand corner and it should take you to this
Okay so depending on your printer you may already have the option to print if so then print for canon users in particular this is not the case we need to click open in from the menu shown above.
Which takes us to our final menu “yay” now pick open in print.
Now it may ask to correct the image layout before you can print which is fine it will just adjust the size so it prints the way we set the images out in word. Now select print select A4 and again voila you have your very first sticker sheet.
There are several ways of cutting these stickers I personally use a Stanley knife clipboard and ruler” I use the clipboard to protect my desk” and trace around each icon or image with the Stanley knife using a ruler or free hand. You can also just cut them all into squares using scissors or even cut them out as you need whatever suits you.
So I know this was a huge post but I have a little reward for all that reading here is the link to the PDF I created above please if you use it link me or tag me I’d love to see them being used ☺️
Print this document as an A4 size document please do not distribute or sell this pdf it is for personal use only. I am in no means a graphic designer just a thrifty planner mummy.
