Make Your Own Coloring Stickers with Circut

I was recently watching a YouTube video of a crafter who was sharing her stash from a recent Scrapbooking Expo. She was all excited about her find of Outline Coloring Stickers. You could use them with colored pencils, markers, or paint. I started to look into locating them and it dawned on me, I don't need to buy them, I can make them with my Cricut Explore Air™ 2 machine

I want to share with you the process so you can make your own. The video included in this post will show you how to upload a free image into Design Space 3 and edit it to be a cut file. 

Drawing to Cut File in Cricut DS3

Once your image is cut, you can then use it to color with. I chose to add mine to watercolor paper and paint within the lines. Below you can follow along with the process I used.

Make sure to rub down well to make sure the entire image has adhered before you begin to paint.

I applied minimal watercolor paints in a variety of layers, building from light to dark.
The vinyl worked well to contain the paint.


using glue dots

After I finished painting, I folded the watercolor paper and applied water to the fold before tearing the excess paper away from the image. This creates an uneven ragged edge which I desired.

To adhere to the card blank, I applied Glue Dots to the back of the watercolor paper.



Finish project.

I really like the results. This project was actually very quick and easy to accomplish. I have seen the Outline stickers in Gold as well as Black, so I guess that will be something I try next.
