Learn how to make your very own customized Print Then Cut stickers!
Making stickers with a Cricut Machine is fun and easy and it’s now even easier with the offset feature! In this tutorial I’m going to explain how to make Print then Cut stickers with and without the new offset feature in Design Space. I’ll show you how to make a full sheet of “Kiss Cut” stickers. These are stickers that cut around the sticker, but not through the backing material. We’ll also learn how to make “Die Cut” stickers and personalize them. A die cut sticker is when the sticker is cut all the way through the backing material. We also will make personalized Return Address Labels, a set of Planner Stickers and some fun Holiday stickers. Lastly, I will also show you how to laminate your stickers, which is an optional step.
How cute are these custom stickers?! I will be showing you how you can make high quality stickers and the different ways you can make them. This sticker design is one of my favorite as they can be so uplifting and quickly put you in a positive mood whether you decide to place them in a planner, notebook, card, or a space you look at everyday, they are sure to brighten up anyone’s mood! There really is no “right place” where you can place them.
The first thing we will need is lots of sticker paper. I will be showing you some of my favorite sticker paper options because there are so many out there to choose from. We are going to use four kinds: Plain white sticker paper, clear vinyl sticker sheets, white vinyl sticker sheets and Cricut Printable Vinyl.
We will also use a roll of transparent vinyl to laminate some of our stickers. And I’m going to use my Cricut Maker 3, but you can also make these on the original maker, Explore 3 or original Explore cutting machine.
You will also need an inkjet printer, either a blue or green cutting mat, scraper tool, brayer and a trimmer or scissors.
These homemade stickers are a great and simple way to add some life and color to a space. Another awesome idea I’ve seen that’s been really popular is adding the die cut stickers to your water bottle. Also, if you decide to laminate them, that can help add more protection and you can even add them as bumper stickers to your car!
A lot of people would be shocked to know that you created these using some printable sticker paper, a printer (remember, inkjet printers work best), and a Cricut machine. You can decide to make the die-cut stickers or the kiss-cut stickers, it’s all about preference.
There are different kinds of stickers you can make including these fun colorful stickers I made for the holidays:
