Instructables
In this Instructable I will show you how to make custom stickers using Microsoft Word. Many people think that making stickers is a time consuming, hard, and expensive process. In reality, this process is simple and can be done by almost anyone. You can even start your own small sticker making business on the side by using this process. So, enough babbling, LET'S GET TO WORK!!

The first thing that we need to do to is design our sticker. You can use any image that you would like, but for this instructable we will just be using the star wars logo and some text that I created.

Okay, the first thing you do is run Microsoft Word and open a new document. Next, insert a text box and place it where you want the sticker to print on the page. Now, right click on the box and add text to the box. Now, if you just want a background for your sticker and text, you can insert that now. If you want to print an image, you are going to have to click on your text box and go to insert picture from clipart or file (in this case file). Then choose your picture and insert it into the text bow. This now allows you to move your image around easier and edit it's size. Now you can make the image the size that you want it to be. Great! You are done designing you sticker. Let's move on!
