We made stickers for a class Christmas party and
designed stickers with artwork we found on the web.
I then painted the back of the printed artwork with
sticker gum and hung them on a small laundry rack to
dry. The kids in class loved their stickers, and the
parents thought it was pretty neat. We used a drop
or two of peppermint extract instead of lemon, but
the solution did not keep. Try lemon extract for
Ingredients for making your own sticker:
1 packet (1/4 oz) unflavored
1 tablespoon cold water
3 tablespoons boiling water
1/2 teaspoon white corn syrup
1/2 teaspoon lemon extract
1.In a small bowl, sprinkle
gelatin into cold water. Put aside until softened.
2.Pour softened gelatin into
boiling water and stir until completely dissolved.
3.Add corn syrup and lemon
extract. Mix well. Make 4 ounces.
To use: Brush gum onto the back of
paper. When dry, cut out "stickers" and moisten glue
with tongue. Fix to whatever you like.
To store: If stored in a pill
bottle or other tightly sealed container, it should
last several months
Note: This gum will gel. Top
return it to a liquid state, warm it in a pan of hot
water, just like you would warm a baby bottle. Heck,
warm it with the baby bottle!
