Kids love stickers. They enjoy sticking them down all over the place.

Watch the children's faces when they see them--they will just beam. Sometimes they will even stick them on themselves and wear them until they fall off.

Free Sources:

  1. Some come in junk mail. Always open up your junk mail just to see if there is anything you can use. See Mining Your Junk Mail for more information.
  2. Cut off pictures that come with free address labels.
    You can still use the label for the address and have the picture to use with your crafts.
  3. Leftover section from a book of postage stamp.
  4. Used Postage stamps:
    • You can pull them off of envelopes.
      Use Un-du Adhesive Remover if you can still find some. It was not able to shipped this summer because of the extreme heat.

If you are a scrapbooker or know a scrapbooker, ask them for their leftovers. There are always leftover alphabet letters or other ones they may not want to use. Maybe they will give them to you.

Of course, you can purchase them, but you can also make them yourself.

A good cheap source for purchasing them are Dollar Stores. Also be on the lookout in Clearance sections of stores for ones from past seasons. Sometimes they are priced really cheap.

Make Your Own Stickers:

    Cut pictures from junk mail or catalogs.
    Use a Glue Stick or other glue to attach it to your project.
    Xyron adhesive is easy and fun to use, but it is more expensive.

    Glue can be as simple as homemade flour and water or purchased.
