The Easiest Doodle Sticker

You know how printing shipping labels leaves extra white space around the actual label? For small packages, I print 2 labels per 8.5 x 11 in. page. 

Now, I could leave the extra space and just stick the label on the package. But something in my brain says to even those edges and trim around the label.

My brain also wonders what to do with the sticker trimmings. 

With the latest package I sent out, I found a creative solution.

I grabbed my favorite Sharpie gel pen and drew doodle flowers on one of the extra strips of paper. There really is nothing like the feeling of pen on paper, right?

Then, just like a coloring book, I colored in the lines with pencils. Also super satisfying! Last but not least, I trimmed around the edges of the art, peeled off the sticker backing, and placed it on the back of the package.

Voilà – quick, beautiful art to surprise and delight the recipient.

If you’d like already-made stickers with extra shine, there are a couple fun options in the shop, too.
