Making it Stick – 3 Ways to Create Stickers using your ScanNCut – Sticker Fun with the CM350

In this Brother Scan and Cut Tips and Tricks tutorial, you will learn how to create stickers using the Brother ScanNCut. I demonstrated three different techniques I personally use to create stickers using the CM350 or Scan and Cut 2. The methods I demonstrated can be applied to any other models of ScanNCut. The first method is to use build in patterns, shapes, or even SVG files you transfer to your machine. You cut out those shapes onto Sticker Paper. I even shared a way to decorate the stickers using a sponge brayer and ink. The second method involves sticker sheets or adhesive sheets. First, I stamped images onto Whisper White card stock. I used the Forever Fern stamp set and Shaded Spruce ink. Then, I added adhesive to the back to the Whisper White using adhesive sheets. Then, I did a “Kiss Cut” by lowering the blade depth and increasing the pressure. This cuts around the stamped image but not through the cardstock, allowing the stickers to be removed easily. The last method involves cutting out patterned paper in a similar way. I scanned it in and added and outline distance. I used Forever Greenery dsp for the leaves. After the dsp was cut out, I used a Xyron sticker machine to create the stickers. I like this option because I can use some of my embellishments with dimensional and turn others into stickers as needed. Use the method you think will work best with your ScanNCut project. The stickers you create can be used as card backgrounds or as embellishments. Settings and materials are listed below.

  1. Hi Kim:

    You mentioned a video from the past where you taught how to stitch using the Scan and Cut. Can you guide me to where that is or the name of the video in which you teach that?

    Thank you!


  2. You saved my sanity today! My DX arrived yesterday and today I was able to make stickers with the Forever Fern set! I had no idea how to cut what I scanned, but you made me a success.

    Thank you for your willingness to inform and inspire crafters. Your teaching is clear with your dedication to details and summarizing as you go along. Thank you so much.
