Make Your Own Sticker Glue


  • 2 tbs. vinegar

  • 1 packet of unflavored gelatin

  • 1 tsp. peppermint extract, vanilla extract, or any flavor you like


  1. Boil vinegar in a small pan then turn the heat to low.

  2. Add gelatin to the hot vinegar and mix until dissolved and add the flavor.

  3. Extra glue can be stored in a tightly sealed jar for later use.

  4. To use the glue again, place the jar in a pan of hot water.

How to Use:

To make stickers, brush glue on the back surface and let the paper dry. It may curl, but will straighten out when dry.

If you want to make pressed flower or leaf stickers, glue them onto paper first and cover with a coat of Modge-Podge or other sealer.

When the paper dries, cut out the stickers, moisten and place the stickers where you want.

This also works to make labels. Children love to label their things.
