2 Craft Projects With Self Adhesive Star Stickers

Christmas is creeping up scarily fast, I've even ended up doing some online shopping to help me be a bit more organised, and I didn't feel like trawling busy shops feeling ill. But I have been Christmas crafting with some of the festive goodies Baker Ross sent me as part of their blogger network.

One of the items I was most looking forward to working with was the bag of self adhesive felt stickers they sent. Although not obviously Christmas I liked the range of colours and sizes in the packet and thought they would work well for a few ideas I had.

In the end I ended up with two different projects using the stickers which I thought I'd share in a blog. Both ideas are fairly easy to make, and cheap too! I wanted to create something different other than just putting the stickers on card, and hopefully I've achieved that.

Felt Stocking

The first felt stocking I ever made I did last year with a Spot the dog design for my little nephew. I really enjoyed sewing it up, and although the stocking is quite small I think you can still fit a fair few things in, such as make-up, small toys, pens, jewellery etc, and then it's a gift someone can enjoy for years to come. If you're not very good at drawing then Google is great for outline templates to help. I used a sharp embroidery needle to sew the star on to the felt, and quite sturdy felt so it would hold some treats inside.




Handmade Card

This just started off with a pair of festive pipe cleaners from a bag I'd bought a while ago but never used. I struggled to think of something to do with them, and then decided to try sticking them on a card in a bauble shape. The rest of the design just followed from there, with the stickers, and some of a festive ribbon reel from Baker Ross, and a cheeky dab of glitter finishing off the card.

Both ideas were pretty quick to make, and there's plenty of time for you to have a go with your own designs, so why not see what different uses you can find for a sticker or two.
