I think we’ve settled on making cookies (probably chocolate chip) for our favors. I want to come up with cute, but simple packaging. I love the look of parchment bags sealed with monogrammed stickers. We’re on a SUPER budget, and I don’t own a Gocco. Any good tips on how to make these suckers?!

I bought round avery stickers and uploaded templates from microsoft word and printed them. They don’t come out as perfectly centered sometimes (you have to align your printer constnatly which is a pain to me, AND load it perfectly every time) but they’re cute and they work!
Alternatively, you can take them to Office Depot, where the printer is centered all the time.

i made monogram stickers for our wedding invitiations using a xyron sticker maker.
it costs $11. it is super easy to use and turns anything into a sticker. i printed the monograms on cardstock, cut them out, and ran them through the xyron. you could also use glossy paper for a different look.
if you want stickers larger than 1.5 x 1.5 inches, xyron has other larger sticker maker options, but probably costs more than this $11 one.

I’m doing the same thing, ktbabe! I ended up deciding to not get stickers for the glassine bags, but I did make stickers for our invites.
I designed them in InDesign and had them printed on full sheet label paper at kinkos (laser printing so it wouldn’t smudge), then punched them out with a circle punch I bought at Michaels.

I am doing the same thing. We designed our stickers and then sent the design to http://www.contagiousgraphics.com and got them printed on a 2 1/2" round circle on kraft paper. We got 500 for around $80 and they turned out wonderfully. We not only are going to use them on our cookie packages but we also used them to seal our invitations and as a part of our centerpieces which are glass globes with a candle in them then ribbon around them sealed with the sticker. For us the $80 was well worth it because they were used for lots of things. Don’t know how much you can/want to spend but I was very pleased with how our stickers turned out.
Here’s a picture of them on our invitations.

I am debating between using avery circle stickers or printing them on my choice of cardstock, cutting with a circle punch and running through my Xyron sticker machine. The later seems like a lot of work but I can use paper to match all the other papers of the wedding.

We bought some at Michaels and it came with a template for the computer. We printed them out ourselves and they came out great.
