Stickers...friend or foe??

Like most scrapbookers, we all have lots of stickers in our stash, and I'm sure like most we hardly use them anymore. Here are 24 ideas for some of those stickers taking up space ...

1. use pop dots to five dimension
2. Use repositional stickers as ghost shapes, then chalk or ink over top
3. Rub them with a sanding block to give a worn look
4. Make a scene with an entire sheet
5. Make a wreath around a picture with flower stickers
6. Make a frame around a picture by cutting out the centre of a large sticker
7. Use stickers to create a border
8. fill in templates with stickers for a unique look
9. make a collage
10. Weave border stickers
11. decorate die cuts and punches
12. use stickers to cover up something on your layout you don't want seen.
13. Use them as adhesives to stick something else down on your layout or card
14. decorate album covers
15. use under page pebbles
16. Create pattern papers
17. crop stickers
18. add movement - put a sticker onto cardstock then hang it on your layout
19. use them for rebus journalling..for example..use a sticker of a kite, rather then the actual word
20. combine with photo's...for example..use a photo of a head and put on a sticker body for a fun page accent
21. Change the colour of a sticker with inks/chalk/paint to match the project you're working on
22. Layer stickers using small pop dots for dimension
