How to Print Stickers in Microsoft Word
1. Create a new document and save the document on your computer. In the toolbar, select the layout tab > orientation > select landscape and in the margins, select narrow.
2. Download and save this graph grid guide on your computer. In the toolbar of Microsoft Word, select design > watermark > picture > select the grid guide you just saved.
3. Make sure to unselect the washout option and to set the scale to auto > click ok.
This is how your grid guide should look like, now print this page and follow the next steps.
4. Using the grid page you just printed, aligned it to the edge of the planner. Look at the image below, the pink line on the left of the paper marks where the page of my planner ends and the pink line on the right of the image shows the crease of the planner.
I’m going to use the yellow line as a guide to know how big I’m going to make the title for the month of May. On the grid paper, I’m selecting 2 big squares in the middle as a reference guide for step 8.
5. Find the stickers that you want to add to your planner and save them to your computer. I save all my stickers in OneDrive to have access to them on my iPad and computer. You may also check out Creative Fabrica, my favorite website to find beautiful illustrations/graphics.

6. Go to the folder where you saved your stickers and drag one of the stickers into Microsoft Word.
7. Right-click on the sticker sheet (image) and select the crop option.
Use the black lines from the corners of the image to select a specific part of the sticker sheet.
8. Remember in step 4 I had a yellow line covering 2 big squares? Using the yellow line as a guide, I’m going to make sure the sticker with the word May covers 2 big squares in the grid guide. See image below for reference.
9. Now add more stickers to the word document. Drag, crop, and resizing the stickers in Microsoft Word until you have a full page of stickers! Microsoft Word also offers unique shapes that you can add insert and decorate.
You may also use the text box tool to write your own titles, use your favorite fonts to create something unique! Check out this tutorial to learn how to install fonts on your computer.
10. Once you have all the stickers in the document, make sure to remove the watermark (guide paper) before clicking the print button. In the toolbar menu, select design > watermark > no watermark. That’s it! Now print your stickers on regular paper or stickers paper. In your printer settings (I suggest an inkjet printer), make sure to choose the best quality.
Note: You can print the stickers on sticker paper or you can just cut them and glue them on your bullet journal.
11. Cut the stickers into long rectangles like on the image below > turn the paper over and outline the sticker with a pencil. Drawing an outline on the back of the paper will help you cut the stickers neatly with the scissors.
12. Use a small pair of scissors to have more control over the paper.
13. I use Elmer’s purple disappearing glue as it friendly on the pages of my planner. If I glue the paper in the wrong position I can remove it and put it in the correct position. Also when the glue dries you won’t see it in the paper as it disappears once it dries.
If you accidentally put glue on the front of the sticker wait for it to dry and use a clean eraser to remove the excess glue.
