You know what’s frustrating? Using up all the E’s in a set of letter stickers before you’ve even used up half the letters. Or the T’s or S’s. My pile of partially used alphabet stickers is growing and growing. I’d really like to get rid of some of those packages of Q’s, X’s, and J’s, how about you?
What are some ways we could do that?
We could play scrabble with the rest of the letters in a set, and come up with words that we could use for titles. That’s always a fun challenge.
We could mix and match letters from multiple sets to create ransom style words. You do want to keep the letters in the same ballpark size wise when you do this. If you really don’t like having mismatched colored letters, you could even paint or ink them to help the letters go together better.
If they are flat stickers, you can add them to a piece of cardstock to create a one-of-a-kind patterned paper. With both flat and dimensional stickers, you can use them with mists or inks or paint to create a background. Coat the backs of the stickers with cornstarch to reduce their stickiness, arrange them on a piece of cardstock, and ink or spray away. When you lift the stickers up, you’ve got the letters showing up as the original color of the cardstock. (I haven’t done this yet myself. I’m still having trouble letting go of my letter stickers.)
I’m sure there are a ton more ways to use up letter stickers. Do any of you have any suggestions?
Of course, there is always the final solution: the garbage can. When you’re down to a 2, a 5, three Q’s and a W, there really isn’t much point to holding on to it. I’ve got to remind myself of that, and throw out some stickers. Hold me. This is going to be hard.
