Once the paper is dry use punches to cut out fun shapes from the wrapping paper. Once you have all of the shapes cut out —- lick lick away!
Then stick! Bella was thrilled to learn how to make stickers! What fun!
Note: If you have leftover sticker gum it will harden into a gel. To re-use, heat until it becomes liquid again then you can make your own stickers again.

I have only tried with corn syrup. It is thicker than regular table syrup. If you try please let us know.

Wow.. very simple… can be tried easily…
BTW we can use any kind of syrup, right… if the light corn syrup isn’t available ..??
Gosh Becky I just don’t know the answer to that question. Maybe someone could help?
How about boiling a little sugar and water to make a thick sugar syrup?

This is a great safe way to show little kids how to make anything into stickers. I will have to share this with my wife so she can share this with her young students.
