Hey guys! I have something super duper cool to share today! Ha! A few weeks ago I was in need of some planner stickers to mark off certain events in my planner- gym days, doctor appointments, etc.. I have seen so many cute designs, I wanted to have some of my own to use. I searched on Etsy and found a lot of really cute stuff, but they were expensive …I mean these are things I’m going to be constantly using and having to re-order, so that wasn’t going to work! So, I knew that Avery had a design and print system on their website so I wondered if there was a label out there that would work for me to design my own! Well, there was! I use these re-positionable .75 inch diameter round Avery labels! They’re perfect, and the smallest size round label I’ve seen. It was SO easy to make my own stickers, and I wanted to share the tutorial with you guys today to help save you guys some money! The labels are only $6.33 on Amazon right now, and they don’t use hardly any of your printer ink. I have an ink jet printer (no lasers here) and it works perfectly! Check these out…

Okay, first you need to go to Amazon and snag you some of these .75 inch round Avery labels to make your planner stickers with…. Then…
Then, pop over to Etsy and find the clip art you’d like to use. I found all of my clip art here, and it was much cheaper to pay $2-$3 for clip art I would get to keep and continue to use versus $5 for stickers (plus shipping) that would eventually run out and have to be re-ordered. Be sure to pay attention to the seller’s policies. Most of these are only for PERSONAL USE, which means you cannot share the clip art, distribute it free, OR sell it. It is only meant for YOU to use. At the bottom of this post I’ll be sharing my favorite Etsy shops for clip art!
Now, once your labels arrive (hopefully you have Amazon Prime & free two day shipping!), and you have your clip art all downloaded that you purchased on Etsy, you can go to the Avery website and go to their Design & Print Online link under Templates.
Once you get there you can enter your product number (on the package of your Avery labels!) and pull up the templates!
Okay, so once you get to the templates you want to choose the blank circle.
Once you have your blank template, you’ll want to go to Images and click From My Computer to pull up your clip art you chose.
You can see here my cupcake clip art I purchased. Now, just click whichever you want to use for your sticker.
Then, you can add more stuff and even text if you want, but once you are ready, you can click the Preview & Print button!
Now you can preview your labels and if everything looks good, hit Print! A new window will open with your stickers in a PDF file. Click print and make sure your page says 4×6 inches for your labels. You can test on a regular piece of paper cut to size before hand so you make sure not to waste any label pages.
OH! And, if you don’t want to print a whole sheet of the same sticker, just switch from Edit All to Edit One and you can click and edit each sticker individually!
See! Super easy!! No more buying stickers. There are so many Avery label sizes available, think of all the possibilities!
