Make Your Own Customized Stickers – Great For Party Favors!

I wanted to personalize my son’s cupcake favors from his recent birthday party, so I decided to make customized stickers for the boxes. Here is the final product:

Baby Jaguar Cupcake Boxes

Making the stickers was easier than I thought it would be!

What You’ll Need:

  • Sticker Paper (Avery makes them – I bought Staples’s generic brand)
  • 8 1/2 x 11-inch  plain paper
  • 2-inch Circle Punch (Michael’s)
  • Adobe Photoshop (optional, but recommended)
  • Microsoft Word
  • Inkjet Printer

How To Make Your Own Stickers:

  1. Create a design for your sticker using Adobe Photoshop or Microsoft Word.
  2. Make sure the design fits the diameter of the sticker you’re making. Resize the image if necessary. Here is the Go Diego Go! sticker that I created in Adobe Photoshop: Sticker Designed in Photoshop
  3. If using Photoshop, save your sticker into a .jpg file and paste it several times into a Word document. If designing your sticker in Word, create a table with 2 columns and 4 rows. Copy and paste your design into each cell of the table.
  4. Print a sample page of your Word document on plain paper.
  5. Using your circle punch, cut out one of the stickers to make sure it looks okay. Tweak your design if necessary.
  6. Insert your sticker paper into your printer, and print a copy of your Word document.
  7. Cut out your stickers with your circle punch. Enjoy!
