Sticky Barc and it’s endless uses

Have you used Sticky Barc before?
I hadn’t and I was curious to know just what it could do.
So I gave it a test drive.
First step was to cut a piece to A4 size and run it through my printer.
It cut just like butter. I was afraid it might “shatter” but it didn’t.
I thought the printer ink might smudge. It didn’t.

Free Printable found

I cut out one of the images and decided to make a journal page with it.
(You can read more about that on my blog).


I used one of the images and painted over it with some water colour paint.
I love the way the printer ink feathered out as it bled through the wood grain.


Now because the Sticky Barc is adhesive I thought it would make great deco tape.
I cut off a scrap and stuck it flat using some double sided tape.


Then I simply stamped a repeated pattern over the Sticky Barc.


Easy as that!
Another gift idea that was a great way to use up the leftovers was to stamp a tag shaped stamp onto the Sticky Barc.


I then cut out the shapes and they were ready to be used.
You could write on them, run them through the typewriter or printer, or add some alpha stickers.


Great for gift tags or labels on bottles (the adhesive backing makes it super simple for that!).


You could emboss some too or even use a die cut machine or electronic cutting machine to make other amazing die cut shapes.
Here is the journal page I made using the bird image that I printed onto the Sticky Barc.


Hope you give Sticky Barc a test run too. It’s fun medium to play with.
Have a creative week
