Happy Saturday Crafty Bees! I am so excited to share with you a quick, inexpensive, and fun way to may your very own planner stickers! I used Honey Bee Stamps Just Sayin’ stamp set for mine, but many of the Honey Bee Sets would work great for this technique because they have super cute little icons and words you can mix and match. (And I totally can’t wait for the release of Honey Bees new line of stamps specifically for planners–coming very soon!) After you’ve chosen what stamps you want to create your layout with, you just need to gather up some colored markers (I used highlighters to keep with my neon theme), some tiny paper punches in various shapes (optional), and some Avery labels in different sizes and shapes.
I started super simple with neon circle color coding labels, black ink, and the different face stamps. How fun are these? (And they can be used to decorate envelopes and all kinds of things other than just a planner!) I also stamped some of the neon circles with the little star and heart stamp and then punched them with my star and heart paper punch. You can use the shaped part as a sticker and the negative space as a sticker!
Next, I played around with some other label shapes. The tiny sheets of rectangular stickers fit my Stampin’ Up banner punch perfectly so I colored those with markers then stamped them with some little icons and phrases to make banner stickers. (If you don’t have the punch, scissors work fine to cut a triangle out of one end of your rectangle).
You can use larger labels to make fun checklist strip stickers–I used the arrow stamps, and the circled star stamp to make bullet points. Simply cut the label itself into strips after coloring and stamping to make it fit in your planner box better.
And as I’ve said before…you can totally make these your own depending on the colors and styles of stamps that you use! I hope you will enjoy a peek at my layout in the photos below–and don’t forget to click on the photos to see them larger.
Happy crafting! Now I have to go fill out my schedule for the week–and you have to make your stickers!
Thanks for looking!
