Hello fellow planner nerds! It’s Zinia here today and I’m really excited to join you once again and share some planner tips and tricks.
I’m sure most of you already know that this month we welcomed a brand new subscription in the Brimbles family, the Sticker Club! As the name suggests it’s an amazing collection of stickers you can use in your planners, journals or any other paper crafts. I really loved my April sticker box and all the wonderful sticker sheets it included.
So since the sticker club box is something new, I thought I’d share with you an idea on how to use your stickers in a different way than just sticking them down to decorate your pages. This idea works really great with the emoji stickers that came in most of the April boxes.
We are going to make paper clips out of stickers! As I said it works best for stickers with simple shapes that you can put back to back.
You are going to need some paper clips, a hot glue gun (or some other strong adhesive) and of course stickers. The process is extremely simple. Just stick one sticker on top of your paper clip, flip it over, add some hot glue and sandwich the glue with another sticker of the same size and shape.
If you want to use a sticker that’s not working good if you flip it, you can punch a small circle and use it to sandwich the glue. This way your paper clips will be single sided but they can still be super adorable.
The emoji stickers look absolutely adorable because their shapes fit nicely. Also the Sea Salt & Paper stickers that were included in the sticker club subscription have some beautiful simple shapes you can use.
For those who didn’t get the sticker subscription, you can make your paper clips out of Anna’s exclusive stickers for this month, the bows that are included in the sheet have exactly the same size and match perfectly.
You can also do the same thing with page flags. The pencil flags that were included in this month’s boxes are really fun to use. Just make sure to cover the whole area with hot glue to make sure it stays in place and also to reinforce it a bit since it’s just a thin piece of paper and can get damaged if you just use your tape runner.
