{saturday craft: painted stickers}

Hi I’m Mique from 30days and the Queen Bee Market. I am a stay at home momma to three who loves creating, connecting and supporting. I adore Gussy and am so happy to be here to share a little tip with you.
Sometimes the simplest ideas get me excited. Making painted labels is such an easy idea, but the results can turn a standard sticker into something unique.

All you need for this project is:
labels – I used Avery 5264 labels
scrapbook paint – I used Making Memories paint
foam roller

Using scrapbook paint, roll your paint onto your labels. No need to worry about it being perfect- just make sure you cover all the labels. Let it dry for an hour or so. If it curls, it’s ok. You can flatten it out by piling books on top of it.

Although I use Photoshop for most of my editing, when it comes to labels, I use Microsoft Word. It’s so easy to use the “labels” tab.

You can also insert images if you want. In this case, for the sake of the tutorial, I made a bunch of different labels. But if you want to use this idea for shipping labels or labels for your shop, just copy and paste them into each spot. Then load the label sheet into the printer as usual.

And voila- pretty, painted labels:

I use labels for everything-
letters, my kids treat bags for school, add one to a plate of cookies on top of cellophane,
to label containers, stick on school work-
the possibilities are endless.

Two ideas:
*for a shipping label (in this case, for the Queen Bee Market)
*and a simple quote to be added to the top of a wrapped gift.

I hope you enjoyed my fun little idea. Stop by 30days and say hi!
