New Stickers & Badges

I’m enjoying designing stickers these days so I ordered two more for the shop, plus a new badge set.

Happy Pencil Stickers

These happy yellow pencils are a similar size to my Postbox stickers so great for sticking on mail or sending to penpals. I’ve put one on my journal. They’re made from hard-wearing vinyl that’s even suitable for outdoor use. Get them in packs of 2, 5 or 10 stickers from £2.50 with free UK shipping.

Metallic Rainbow Stickers

Since my limited edition rainbow magnets were popular, I’ve brought it back as a sticker to keep you feeling positive and colourful. It’s printed on shiny metallic foil, which is annoying to photograph but fun to use. These are a a larger size – get 1, 2 or 5 stickers from £2 with free UK shipping.

kawaii tea badge set

Tea Cup & Teabag Badge Set

This teabag was a popular character in my 100 Day Project but I couldn’t get him to work as a pin (yet!). Instead I made some badges along with a happy cup of tea. Perfect for tea lovers everywhere. Get the set for £3.50 with free UK shipping, or you can pick and mix your own set of badges or fridge magnets from over 40 of my cute characters.

Hope you like them!
