How to Make Clear Sticker Sentiments from Craft Stamps – Halloween Tubes

I am so excited!  I’ve been wanting to see if I could make my own stickers for a long time.  I CAN!  So can you!  SWEET!!!  I made all the stickers using my Halloween Puns stamps.  What a fun way to use stamps, huh?  I LOVE IT!

Here’s what you need…

There are other kinds of tubes that you can use, but last year I wanted to do a tube project and I bought these on Amazon.  Here’s a link to them: plastic test tubes with caps. Well, I never got around to using them so I’m super proud of myself for finally putting them to good use!  You need StazOn Ink, a Heat Tool (one with a stand is nice), stamps and clear sticker paper.  I bought my sticker paper here.  I love their store because they allow you to purchase by the sheet!  Nice!

Here’s how you make it…

First, you stamp your saying or image onto the sticker sheets using StazOn ink. Next, use the heat tool to dry the ink.  Cut the dried stamp out of the sticker paper.  Remove the backing and stick it to your tube.  TA DA!!  It’s that easy!  Just be sure your hands are clean or you will leave prints on the sticker.  (Of course that happened to me!  LOL!)

Me get tricked! Me have no candy in treat! Me talking like Cookie Monster again.

I used fabric and twine to cover those blue lids.  The only thing missing?  CANDY!!  I’ll get some sweet treats in there ASAP!

Have a Happy Day!

    Dang, that is super cute! I’m a real sucker for puns. 🙂 Would that StazOn ink stamp directly onto a surface such as the test tubes as long as you dried it before smearing could occur? tfs

    1. Kayla,
      I haven’t tried stamping with the StazOn directly on to the tube, but I think it would work if you could keep from smearing it before you dry it. 😉 It might be difficult since the tube is small and round. Let me know how it turns out if you give it a try!
      Thank you!

    1. Theresa,
      Congrats on your win! I was behind in sending winner emails out, but went to you this morning. Woo hoo!
      Still having trouble with the email button? It’s working when I try it. I hope it’s working for you. 🙂

  10. Oh Joy honey, I haven’t been to your sight for awhile now, because it was giving me fits while you were redoing it. I can’t handle things that mess up all the time and that is how your sight got when I would come visit you. I just love the way it is laid out. I also thought that those glass tubes were pretty neat. You have such a creative mind.

    1. Thank you Sillykid! I’m glad you like the new look of the blog too. I hope it isn’t giving you fits any more! 🙂

  11. Joy, you are sooo uber creative! Love the stickers. You could put mini m &m’s in them and hand them out halloween. I just got my blog up and posted for the 1st time last night. I’m super excited. Please stop by and see me.

    1. Beckie,
      MINI M&M’s!! Genius!! Thank you! I’ve been dieting for a while, so my brain won’t even think about candy. I’m so glad you mentioned the mini M&M’s. That’s perfect!
      Congratulations on your new blog. I’m coming by to say hi! 🙂

  12. I love this idea, what a great way to give the kiddo’s some sweets for trick or treat.
