I was listening to The Murder Squad the other week and Billy Jenson (one of the hosts) mentioned collecting stickers as a kid. Man oh man, memories of my own sticker album came rushing back and I immediately wanted to make a mini sticker album.
It turned out pretty dang adorably. It was amazing how many people had such strong memories of their sticker collections. The types and styles and smells. The trading! Such good, sweet, nostalgia.
It made me so happy I made a second album. And while it's not perfect I wanted to share this project because I think it's such a nice little dose of happiness.
For the second little album I took a trip to the Dollar Tree and visited the kids sticker section. I stood there and wondered why the hell I ever gave up sticker collecting and seriously considering starting a new one. I mean, there are some seriously fun and nifty stickers out there!
As far as the albums. These are handmade, spiral bound, hardcover with laminate pages inside. I don't know about you but my old sticker album had that plastic film covering the pages and it wouldn't be right if my mini version didn't have that too.
If you'd like to make your own wee album I do have a tute that takes you through everything. You can find that HERE on my youtube channel.
And here is the list of all the supplies that you'll need (it really doesn't take much to make these!)
• card stock (cover paper)
• cardboard (cereal box)
• scrapbook paper• thin wire (I used florist wire)
• glue stick
• packing tape• STICKERS!!!!
Helpful tools:• something pokey/small hole punch
• thin doweling
• bone folder
• paper cutter
What do you say? Are you with me?! Let's stir up some 80s style radical cuteness!
You could also keep an eye out at michaels craft store. They have micro sticker sets every once in awhile.ReplyDelete

I still have my sticker books from the 80's and I will still add to them now and then!ReplyDelete
