Dingbats are awesome. No, not the silly-people-dingbats. Dingbat fonts. These DIY Transparent Planner Stickers were made with the Doodled Bits Dingbat font – which is free for download for personal use. You download and install it like a font, but instead of letters and punctuation marks, you get these cute doodled characters or ornaments when you type with your keyboard. Cool right? Add a little clear sticker paper and some print-and-cut action, et voila! You have these cute planner stickers. Want to make your own? Read on for the tutorial…



The What

The How

  1. Download and install your dingbat font
  2. Launch Silhouette Studio – the new font should now be in your font list
  3. Select the Text tool and type out your characters – set them to no cut
  4. Set the line and fill to black for each one
  5. Create an outline for each character using the Offset tool. Set the outline to cut
  6. Group your characters and make a rectangle around them. Thicken the line and set the color to black. Repeat for each group
  7. Show registration marks (for print and cut)
  8. Send to print
  9. Adjust the blade and cut setting for the Clear Sticker Paper so that the blade is at 2 and the thickness is around 20
  10. Load your clear sticker printout
  11. Send to cut
  12. Use a pair of scissors or craft knife and cutting mat to cut out the rectangles

    I love the idea of transparent stickers. I am guessing that I could use sharpies to color them, if I wanted to customize them. Can’t wait to give this a try!

    Why have I not thought to use transparent stickers before for my journals. I love to scrapbook and have some that I love but haven’t used.
