Crafty Stickers Giveaway
I have a secret guilty love of stickers. Ever since I was little, I loved to collect pages of cute little characters, hearts, shiny stars, etc. Only I did not put them in sticker books like so many of my friends– because that would be wasting them. In fact, I’d carefully- carefully- choose when and where to use them. To such extent that I still have, somewhere in my collection, a sheet of glittery chubby flower babies with 4 stickers remaining. They were my favorite stickers as a kid.
These days I use them more liberally, generally on mail and packages, as I feel like there are so few hand written exchanges any more and this is just one more way of making them fun and personal. So when I saw these cute Crafty Stickers from Chronicle Books I knew I wanted them! They are craft- themed labels, with touches of faux stitching, graph paper lines, yarn balls, pincushions, doilies and dressforms throughout. And they come in a multitude of sizes that you can use not only for packages, but to label your supplies or tag your handmade gifts. My absolute favorite way to use the big stickers is to feature them on envelopes that I re-use, like so:
They take the focus away from “Hey you ripped off/crossed out that address and sent me this half beaten envelope” and turn it into “Aww, what a cute label!”. And I save an envelope, some resources, and some $ in the process. Hopefully they also inspire the person receiving the envelope to continue to re-use it until it falls apart.
And to inspire you to do the same, and to litter the world with pretty crafty stickers, Chronicle Books has so kindly donated one pack of Crafty Stickers for me to give away to one lucky reader. The packet has over 200 stickers to choose from- and don’t worry, there are at least 2 of each design, so you don’t have to save them for 20 years to find the perfect place for each one. To enter to win, tell me what you would use the stickers for- or, describe your favorite/most memorable sticker– in the comments. Eligible comments must be left by Sunday at 10 pm mountain time. Good luck!
