How to Make Snapchat Stickers from Scratch

Snapchat’s ability to design your own Snapchat stickers is a fantastic tool that makes it simple to produce some distinctive photos. This allows you to clip off sections of an image and save them to use as stickers. Once you’ve figured out how to do it, you’ll be able to make as many stickers as you want, of whatever you want. Here’s what you should do.

  1. Take a snapshot with Snapchat, or access your camera roll by tapping the three dots in the top-right corner, then Edit. Tap the scissor icon on the right side of the screen when you’re in editing mode for a snap.
  2. Draw over the object you wish to transform into a sticker with your finger or a stylus. Make sure you keep your finger on the screen the entire time until the entire thing is covered. Stay as close to the thing you’re making a sticker of as possible to get a more precise sticker. If your object is against a more contrasted background, Snapchat will have an easier time creating your sticker.
  3. Release your finger/stylus once you’ve drawn over the entire thing, and your sticker should show as a smaller version of the object. It will also be saved to the stickers you’ve made.
  4. Place the sticker here and then use your snap as desired if you want to utilize it in the same image. If you want to utilize it in a new image, you must first depart the image where you made your sticker.
  5. Take a fresh photo, then tap the right-hand sticker symbol.
  6. Select your newly made sticker by tapping the scissor symbol. It will behave just like any other sticker, so you may resize or move it as needed.

If you want to delete a made sticker, go to your created stickers and press on the sticker icon. Tap and hold the sticker you wish to remove, then drag it to the upper right corner of the screen to the trash can.
