Photo Stickers

I wanted a way to put up photos without hammering holes into the wall. I know many photo printing sites will create stickers of the photos you choose, but I wanted to try and create some on my own.

What you will need:

  • Adhesive-backed white vinyl
  • Photos
  • Printer that uses laser printer technology
  • Piece of card stock paper
  • Scotch tape
  • Paper cutter or scissors

On a computer, format the photos the way you want them to be printed. With iPhoto, I used a black and white effect, turned the photo 45°, and cropped it into a square size. I then inserted the photos into a word processing program, I used Pages, then stretched them to be 5″x5″. I lined the photos up two per page, leaving a 1/4″ margin.

Before printing, I cut the vinyl into 6″x11″ pages and taped the corners to a piece of card stock paper, leaving less than 1/4″ of tape on the vinyl.

Determine where to feed the vinyl side of the paper so the printer will print only on the vinyl.

Remove the vinyl from the card stock. Cut off the white edges.

Peel off the backs and stick your photo wherever you desire.
