How To Make Your Own Planner Stickers [Tutorial]

affiliatedisclaimer

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…

Hey ya’ll, this tutorial is from way back in 2014! This is still a super easy way to make stickers, but I have some new tutorials going up over on my Youtube channel. Plus, make sure you subscribe to get updates on new tutorials, free printables, and more!

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!

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!

  5. Thank you SO much for posting this! I always wondered how everyone made those cute stickers! Now it’s time to make some thanks love! By the way your blog is gorgeous <3

  6. Such a helpful post! I am diving head first into my EC life planner and have spent way too much on stickers. I love this idea! I just bought a Silhouette Cameo too (p.s. all this planning and stickers has finally helped me to spell “silhouette” right the first time every time lol) and am looking into how all this sticker making works. I’m definitely saving your post and your list of great Etsy sellers. Thanks for sharing!!

  7. I’m in a sorority and I really want to make some stickers for my planner that are specific to greek life, such as bid day, greek week, social, recruitment, community service, etc. I want to do circles. What size labels did you use? Is the 1″ small enough? Thanks!

  8. I love solutions that let me use products I already have around the house. It all seems so easy and obvious now lol. All it takes is someone to use their imagination. Way to think outside the box! Appreciate you sharing your idea.

  9. Hi,

    Great tutorial! I’d like bigger stickers. Do I have to use .75 with the clip art I purchase?

    Thanks!

  10. I’m so glad I found your post! I’ve just recently purchased an Erin Condren planner and started using all the fun stickers but you’re right, I’d be broke after my first few months of planning with buying them every other week. Great tutorial. My question is, I’ve noticed when I receive my stickers from sellers on Etsy that the outline of the sticker paper after you peel it off the paper resembles the actual sticker and not a round circle. How or what machine/printer are they using and even paper? The same Avery labels you are suggesting?
