Description:

A recent hobby of mine has been creating hand drawn stickers. If you like to doodle, draw or create art in any way then maybe you will like this too!

If you already make your own stickers just skip a few paragraphs :)

If you are interested: 1.) I create my images on regular printer paper, water color paper, or whatever medium you'd like to use.

2.) I then place my original into my copier and print it out on to full size Avery Labels which create DIY Stickers.

3.) I then cut around the stickers to give them more of a die cut look. You could also cut them into squares or whatever you'd like.

You could also do this digitally as well!

But this way, you have an original sticker sheet and can create as many stickers as you'd like.

Here are a few youtube videos for other ideas for DIY stickers: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aHuVXBjdaps https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8UKP2fxVZ_8 (how I make my collage stickers: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W46DCVwwsVQ)

Ok - so for the swap.

You will have 1 partner and send at least 10 stickers to them.

You can cut out the stickers or leave them on the printed sticker sheet whole, it is up to you. As long as there are at least 10 images to cut out.

Does not have to be profiled based but please keep designs tasteful and friendly.

Send a little note perhaps explaining your ideas or the story behind your stickers.

Please give a 5 rating if you receive 10 stickers.

Please let me know if you have any questions. This is my first time hosting a swap so I will do my best.

I am prepared to angel if you did not receive stickers from a partner.

Do they have to be doodles. I mostly do collage and painting but I make stickers from my paintings/ collage. Is that type of sticker ok?

Yes - that would be fine :) Just put some ideas out there - but that would be awesome!!

Hi! I am new here and do DIY stickers. Unfortunately, I am not eligible for this swap ... yet :) But may I ask what steps I’ll need to take to become eligible in the future?

Thank you ^.^

Sure :) So many times, a host may allow newbies to join in if they have a super filled out profile. Which always helps. To help build your ratings as well, you can filter swaps for those who allow people with no ratings yet. I know I started with ones that didn't mail anything, but with comments on instagram, etc. This allows people to rate you while not having the pressure to mail anything yet. I would really recommend filling out your profile completely which will help you get started here. I hope that helps!

@ipukekawaii postcard swaps are often newbie-friendly and a good way to start, too! I didn't do any digital swaps until I'd been swapping for months. But a filled-out profile is really important.
