Collecting stickers is always loads of fun, but what if your little ones could play with them again and again without the stickers losing their “stick?” This DIY sticker book is the perfect summer activity for those rainy days, and it uses wax paper to allow you to peel stickers off the pages and use them multiple times.
Check out this tutorial to see how to make your own sticker book, and don’t forget to include all of the entertaining activity pages!
DIY Sticker Book
What You Need:
- Wax paper
- Hole puncher
- Twine or binder rings
- Double-sided tape
- Pencil and markers
Step-by-Step Sticker Book Tutorial
Step one: Create the cover by decorating a piece of cardstock and personalizing it with your child’s name.
Step two: Lay out several pieces of cardstock to serve as your inside pages. Cover each page in clear wax paper. Do this by placing double-sided tape in each corner of a page, smoothing down a sheet of wax paper over it, and then trimming off the edges of the wax paper so that it fits nicely over the cardstock.
Step three: Line up your cover and inside pages, and bind them all together using a hole puncher and twine. Thread the twine through the holes using a four-hole binding method or, for a simpler approach, use binder rings instead.
Step four: Decorate the inside with stickers! Since you can peel stickers off the wax paper, kids can move them around within the book with ease.
