I bought this adorable bride sign at Michaels today intending for our very young ring bearer to carry it. But the sticker on the back won’t peel off easy at all ..ggrrrrrr!
Any ideas on how to cover it so it doesn’t look tacky as our little one is carrying it down the aisle? I’m sure that back sticker stick out like a sore thumb.

You can try a little lemon juice to help. Or if you aren’t looking to scrape it off, maybe just tape a piece of white paper over it or stick blank white mailing labels on top of it. The back is white so it will blend.

Get some Goo Gone to remove it. Or just put some drops of water on it and then scrape it off with the edge of a knife.
If you really can’t get it off, I suppose you could cover it with white deco tape.

My first try would be oil to soak in and then scraping and rubbing it off. The oil should help to dissolve the glue.

You could try painting over it with white acrylic.

If you point a hairdryer at it, the heat will soften the glue and it should peel off.

Goo Gone should get it right off! I bought a similar sign from Hobby Lobby with a clearance sticker on the front and it got it right off without damaging it at all.

It made of soft cardboard so I dont think I should use any oil or goo gone.. the white sticker it is.
Y’all are so smart..this is why I come here. (smile)

Get some Undo. It’s safe for scrapbooking, so your sign will be fine with it.

Hair dryer for sure. Melts the glue so you can peel it off.

I use Goo Gone to get the stickers off everything-cardboard, the inside of shoes etc. Never had a stain or any problem.

trace the shape on to a piece of cardboard paper or felt. Cut it out, glue it to the back. (Use a glue gun if felt)
there will be bumps where the ribbon ends are, but no one will notice.

A little white paint? Or white-out (the dry, roll on tape kind).

This will sound weird… mayonnaise!
Slather that sticker in Mayo for ten or so minutes and it’ll peel right off 😊

I just thought of something. When we get Amazon and shipping boxes and I want to remove labels before recycling, I’ll follow the outside edge (not full pressure) of the mailing label with a box cutter. Then voila, the label comes off only taking a small layer from the cardboard. Make sure you go light. Good luck. Or mailing labels was my initial thought.
