TuteTuesday: Vinyl stickers from OnePearlButton

Robot vinyl stickers 6
I found this really cool tutorial over at OnePearlButton that showed how to make stickers from contact paper and permanent markers. Here is my version!
Encontre un tutorial muy bueno en el blog de OnePearlButton donde muestra como hacer stickers de vinil usando papel de contacto (el que se usa para forrar libretas) y marcadores permanentes.
1-First I made some drawings I wanted to turn into stickers. I chose robots for whatever reason.
Primero dibuje los diseños que queria convertir en sellitos. Escoji hacer robots.

I cut a piece of contact paper big enough to fit my desired drawing. I placed the clear vinyl (or contact paper, whatever you like to call it) over my drawing and secured it with a little piece of tape. The tape is optional, but I strongly suggest it to prevent your vinyl from moving. Now trace your drawing with a permanent marker. I use Sharpies.
Corta un pedazo del papel contacto suficiente grande para que quepa tu dibujo. Puse el pedazo de papel contacto (o vinyl, como prefieras llamarlo) sobre mi dibujo y lo aguante en su lugar con un pedazo de tape. El tape es opcional pero sujiero que lo uses para que no se mueva mientras dibujas. Ahora calquea (o dibuja) en el vinil con un marcador permanente. Yo uso Sharpies.

Now that my drawing is finished, I cut my drawing with scissors.
Ya que termine mi dibujo, lo corto con tijeras.

Now that your done you can place them anywhere. They are removable, so if you want to try some designs you can always use these stickers. I placed this fellow on my baby's crib.
Ya terminaste! Ahora puedes poner tu sello donde quieras. Es removible, asi que puedes puedes usar este metodo para probar diseños. Puse este robot en la cuna de mi niña.

Little Sofia liked her new robot pal so much!
A Sofia le encanto su nuevo amigo el robot!

Happy creating!

PD Estoy jugando con el "look" de este blog, asi que talves veas algunos cambios (mas de los que se han hecho!)

PSS I will upload a PDF containing my robots if anyone is interested in making some robo-stickers.

  16. I made my little stickers with sharpies on contact paper just as you said but they smudged really badly after a day or so and were really tough to reposition without damaging them, its a sweet tutorial with adorable robots but i think the method may need tweaking a bit XX
