DIY Cheap Easy Stickers




In this instructable, I will show you how to make easy cheap stickers at home for a very low cost. They are waterproof, durable and last a long time. I will be entering this instructable in the "Tape" contest as its entirely made up of two different types of tapes. If one of the instructable team is reading this please vote for me because although this may be a small project people love cheap easy things and stickers are well in trend at the moment. Also if an instructable staff member is reading this could you please try and make a cheap or free category or competition because I find it hard to make something that I can actually afford. Thank You!!

Also, as part of the competition extras, I will explain how I have incorporated this into the classroom. I have incorporated this into the classroom because many of my friends and peers have asked me to make personalised stickers to go on their books as it adds a sense of friendliness and fun to learning. My teachers have even asked for some too because everyone loves a bit of creativity!!
