Old school traditional planners are all the rage these day, are you using one? While I’m a digi-calendar girl for my appointments I do like to keep track of other things on paper and having is neatly organized in a pretty planner has been a great way to do it.
As I’ve been working in my planner I’ve wanted to incorporate my own stickers so I whipped up some so I can print them and then use my ScanNCut to cut them out. I love how I can have my ScanNCut cut .04” away from the edge of the designs so that it really looks like a sticker!
- ScanNCut Machine and Accessories (a low or middle tack mat is recommended)
- Computer and Printer
- 1 (or more) sheets of 8.5” x 11” White Sticker Project Paper (compatible with your printer)...use clear sticker paper if you want transparency.
Watch video instructions HERE:
- Print out the sticker design onto the white sticker paper and allow the ink to dry. Be sure to use a sticker paper that is compatible with your printer.
- Place the printed-on sticker paper onto a low tack or middle tack ScanNCut mat and load it into the machine.
- Choose “Scan,” then press “Direct Cut,” and then select which device you want the scanned image to be converted on…I used my ScanNCut.
- Choose the color recognition mode and press the “start” button.
- Once the scan is complete use the handles to frame the design and press “ok.”
- After it processes the design choose how much of a boarder you want around each sticker by making changes under the “Seam Allowance/Outline” button. I choose a boarder of 0.04.” When finished press “ok.”
- Make sure your cutting blade is set so that it only cuts through the sticker paper and not through the sticker paper’s backing. I used a blade depth of 3.5, but yours may be different depending on the difference in our blades use.
- When cutting is complete unload the cutting mat and remove the sticker paper from it. Your stickers are now ready to use!
