    How do you make embellishments & stickers

    Hi everyone!

    I decided to post here to see what everyone here has tried or wants to try.
    I am wanting to make my own stickers and embellishments so wouldlike your input please.

    I would say they both should be small... no bigger than 0.5"

    -I have been attempting to get the "puffy" sticker look by using mod podge over the small art I make but no luck.

    Ideas? Tips? =x

    Diamond glaze over small bits adds dimension - or Crystal lacquer. I haven't tried glossy accents... probably the same effect?

    Do you use the Xyron Sticker maker to add adhesive to the back? I have the 1-1/2 inch and 5 inch. I do the sticker part first, then add the "dimension".

    Ah! Perhaps it is glossy accents that gives it a puffy look?

    Nope... I wanted feedback from everyone before attempting to put money into things that I might not use. So no I do not have the sticker maker (any kind) yet.

    I'll look into the diamond glaze though! Thank you.

    I have three sizes of the Xyron and use them more than any other gadget I have purchased as a "I Need This". They are great.
