Step 1:
First, gather up any artwork you'd like to trace, or draw your own designs on a piece of paper. Using a marker for big, bold lines works best. Next, take your parchment paper, put it on top of your art, and trace it with your marker.
Step 2:
Next, take strips of duct tape and cover your design. Make sure to cover your design completely; you can also use more than one color or pattern of tape if you like.
Step 3:
Flipping over the parchment paper, you'll still be able to see your drawn outline.
Step 4:
Using your scissors, cut out the sticker along the lines. When you're ready to use it, simply peel the tape from the parchment paper and stick away!

Variations:

Wax paper is more difficult to work with than parchment paper. In order to properly peel the tape from the wax paper, it is best to leave a tab of excess wax paper/tape when cutting out the design. Cut off the excess after you've peeled the tape away from the wax paper, before you apply the sticker.
