Whatever happened to puffy stickers? I never see them anymore. Sure, I see a few here or there but not many. They were fun 3D like stickers. I had an idea. I decided to make my own puffy stickers using Mod Podge Dimensional Magic. The process is very simple, but you can make it more difficult by using some of my other ideas.
Turn Stickers into Puffy Stickers
Make fun puffy stickers using Mod Podge Dimensional Magic. This stuff creates a raised effect that dries clear. All you have to do is squeeze the stuff on top of stickers. Keep the stickers on the paper backing they come with. Squeeze a small amount of Dimensional magic on the center and them work your way out to the edge. It’s thick so don’t worry about it running. Pop any bubbles with a toothpick. Let the stickers dry for at least three hours.
Make Your Own Stickers
Not happy with the sticker selection in stores? You can easily make your own stickers and all you need is a printer. In the paper section of the store you will find sticker paper. It is sheets of paper with a sticky back. All you have to do is print the images you want to make into stickers. Let the ink dry before you apply the Dimensional Magic to make them puffy stickers. With this idea, you can turn your family pictures into puffy stickers or make stickers the size of a piece of paper.
Make “Double” 3D Puffy Stickers
What about a 3D effect on top of a 3D effect? You can do this by layering on your stickers. First, choose your stickers or make them. Second, get your hands on some puffy paint. Puffy paint works a lot like Dimensional Magic except that it doesn’t dry clear. Trace designs on your stickers using the Puffy Paint. I like to highlight edges. For example, if my sticker is a star, I would outline the star with Puffy Paint. Let the paint dry completely and then add the Dimensional Magic. You’ll need to use more Magic to make sure you cover the paint.
With these ideas you’ll have created one-of-a-kind puffy stickers. Let the kids help make them or give them as gifts. Kids can decorate school books or you can use them in scrapbooking.
