Recycled Stickers

Kit loves stickers - every child does, don't they? He also insists that practically all of his artwork be stuck up on the wall, so we now have a living room wallpapered with sticker and scribble covered paper - but he's so proud of his work, what can a mum do!

Lots of sticker usage causes lots of empty sticker sheets...BUT they aren't empty are they!!

Being frugal, and posing as environmentally friendly I was wondering what I could do with all the leftover sticky bits from the used sticker sheets.

In the Yellow Moon website sale last year I'd bought a bunch of different shaped punches really cheap, as I was intending to use them for card making. It occured to me that they would be perfect to turn the scraps of the old sticker sheets into new stickers. So I did.

Saved money and have a happy little boy with lots of new stickers to adorn his pictures and consequently the living room walls with!


  1. now that's very clever! we have thee same punches, my daughter will love this ;)

  2. Great idea, where did you get the punches from?

  3. I got them from but lots of arts and craft shops sell them too. :)

  4. This is an absolutely brilliant idea!

    I've seen the small punches in Tesco, I'd been looking for a reason to buy some! They have hearts, stars and butterflies.

  5. What a great idea! May try that one myself.

  6. Great idea! Beats what we do (scrunching them up and sticking them to our faces and pretending we have beards!!). Found you on Love New Blogs btw

  7. Ah I LOVE this idea! Definately going to remember that and keep an eye out for shaped stamps! Thanks for sharing :)

  8. I remember reading this post when I first started blogging and thinking it was fab - but I hadn't got into commenting. Such a brilliant idea. I really must give it a try.

    I like the idea of pretending to have beards Actually Mummy, I may have to try that one! :)
