On my last trip to Korea I was visiting one of my favorite stationery + office supply shops when I spotted a bunch of colored dot stickers. I've seen similar stickers at office supply stores here in the U.S. but when I noticed that the dot stickers in Korea came in mini sizes this made me quite excited. I immediately envisioned using the mini dot stickers to decorate packages or write out initials or spell out words. I grabbed a huge stack of colored dot stickers knowing that I would put them to good use. Fast forward seven months and we find out we're moving back to Korea and I decided there was no need for me to move all my dot stickers back overseas so I'm sharing the wealth over at my TAG SALE today. Here's a quick and easy tutorial on how to put these dot stickers to good use.

D O T  S T I C K E R  P A C K A G I N G


1. Dot stickers

2. Cardstock or Kraft box

3. Scissors or X-acto knife or Paper cutter

4. Pencil 

5. Optional: 1/8" hole punch, bakers twine


1. Cut cardstock down to appropriate size.

2. Using a pencil lightly write a letter or draw a pattern on to your cardstock or box.

3. Place stickers over the penciled pattern, keeping the distance between the stickers an even width apart. (You can skip the penciled pattern and eyeball the pattern which is what I do.)

4. Erase pencil markings.

5. If making a gift tag, punch 1/8" hole at the end of one side and thread bakers twine through the hole.

6. Enjoy your pretty dot sticker pattern or letter!
