That said, stickers can do more than stick, they can be very versatile. I have a sticker hack for creating next-level stickers. Here’s how I create my own sturdier ‘cardstock’ elements from stickers, to help me to create design clusters that really pop. To create this clustered tag I needed different weights of the various elements (ie. Stickers). I create my own ‘card stock’ sticker elements with the Brother ScanNCut…
