Hello! I don't know if anyone else is like this, but I have a hard time using stickers. It's just like, once you use them, that's it! I know, it's weird - and I keep buying them hoping to find the perfect place to stick them to. This has resulted in me having quite a lot of stickers but I've finally discovered the perfect use: make them into brooches, earrings, and hairclips!



To make your own you'll need some thin balsa wood, a scalpel, jewellery hardware, E6000 glue, PVA glue or mod podge, and some fun stickers. I just stuck my stickers directly to the balsa wood, but I noticed one of them moving around while I was wearing it yesterday so in future I would brush on a very thin layer of glue before adding the stickers.



Cutting them out with the scalpel is the most time consuming part! I used the time to catch up on some Welcome to Night Vale episodes ^___^ Lastly, use the E6000 to glue on the jewellery hardware and leave everything to dry.



I've still got a lot of stickers in my collection so I think I'll be making more of these in the future, and now I have an excuse to buy even more stickers ~____^

What a clever idea!  I'll bet you could use the same technique for other ephemera, like christmas cards or nail art.

Great idea!  They are all so CUTE!  I've always had a problem using stickers, too.  I still have ones in my collection from when I was probably about four years old.  I used to buy two sheets so that I could use one and keep one.  Well, I say "used to..."

I forgot to mention how precise your cutting is... I don't think I could do it near as perfectly
