How to Use Custom Stickers to Create CHEAP Summer Projects

Make your schedule fun!

Stickers can make your calendar or summer schedule fun for you and the whole family. Mark off your vacation with stickers of palm trees or roller coasters. If you spend Fridays at the beach, add stickers of waves. Create a fun honey-do list with stickers on a whiteboard to check off the yardwork each week.  

Create a space for you

Have you been dreaming of a she-shed, man cave, craft nook, or office space? Setting aside someplace for you doesn’t have to be a huge renovation. Use a sheet of plywood covered in contact paper resting across two small bookcases for a desk. Cover cardboard boxes with extra fabric for cheap storage containers and use custom stickers to label them.

Liven up your summer parties

Don’t buy specialty glasses and tableware for summer. Blue Bee stickers adhere perfectly to any surface to make your tableware summer-ready. Create summer-themed stickers with starfish, lemons, or flamingoes and stick on plain glasses and plates. If you want to change it up for the next party, just change your stickers and match your stickers to your party theme.

Projects for Kids

Keeping kids occupied during the summer can be a monumental challenge. A few days into summer break the summer slide starts and the electronics come out. Keep your children engaged with fun custom sticker projects that won’t break the bank.

Create a garden

Gardening with your kids is a very rewarding experience. Teach them about every step of the process. Use household plastic recyclables like coffee cans, laundry detergent bottles, or snack containers to make free planters. Make a compost pile to teach them about fertilizing. Set out containers by your drainpipes to collect rainwater. Use the seeds from fruits and vegetables you eat to show how plants sprout. Blue Bee has weatherproof sticker options you can use to make custom labels for your planters. Your children will have a summer-long project and your kitchen will have fresh produce.

Make greeting cards

Summer can be an isolating time for kids. They’ll miss seeing their friends every day. Help them stay connected and teach them a valuable life skill at the same time. Custom stickers are a fun way to make homemade greeting cards. Kids can add the stickers to the front of the card and write their messages on the inside. Then teach them how to address an envelope themselves. The whole project won’t cost you much more than a stamp!

Custom stickers by Blue Bee are durable, affordable, and high-quality. Your projects with us will last through this summer, next summer, and beyond!

With summer just around the corner, a new school year just over the horizon, and holiday planning ever looming, this is the perfect time of year to sit down with your planner and set brand new goals. Fortunately, long gone are the days when planners had to be drab and stale! Instead, choose to enhance your beautiful 2020 planner! Make your own Erin Condren stickers with Blue Bee Printing, or make your Bullet Journal pop with just-for-you customized stickers.

Today, we’re going to show you how to use the stickers you create. If you’re someone who likes to pepper in a bit of whimsy every day, custom stickers for your planner are a great way to keep yourself organized. Read on for our best DIY planner sticker tips!

1. Use customized stickers for appointments.

This tip is a time-saver, and it can make things like a child’s doctor, dentist, or orthodontist trip a bit more fun. When it’s time to add an upcoming appointment to the calendar, you can show your little one the custom sticker you’ve created just for these events.

2. Keep Yourself Motivated

Most of us aren’t crazy about starting a workout routine, and it can be tough to stick with it for very long. By creating meaningful, pretty stickers congratulating yourself for workouts 25, 50, 75, and 100, you’ll have one more reason to keep this form of self-care going.

3. Create Custom Birthday Stickers

Where there’s a big birthday, there should be a sticker! Celebrate your loved one’s special day with a sticker designed with their birth year and photo, and see their smile as you point out the big day coming up.

This is a lot of fun for pets, as well; perhaps because they don’t have many birthdays with us, it can be rewarding to go all out!

4. Create Work-Related Stickers

Whether your work takes place in a board room or a classroom, stickers can jazz up even the most mundane tasks. Mark meetings, important deadlines, your boss’s birthday, or your employee’s vacation with a custom sticker.

5. Design Your Own Holiday Stickers

Mass-produced holiday stickers are usually cute, but they can’t compare to the fun of creating stickers that remind you of what YOU love best about each holiday. Holiday stickers can also be printed in sheets; what works well for your calendar may also enhance gift boxes, card envelopes, and boxes of handmade treats!
