Stkr.it is a sticker that allows the user to attach an image, short video, or audio message to a paper crafts, fabric crafts, or other type of crafts project. The way it works is that uploaded media data is attached to the particular code on each sticker. This allows the user to attach the sticker to a blog post, a card, an invitation, scrapbook page and other media. How does this translate to real use? Well, the crafter can capture a baby’s first step on video or a child’s first words on audio. These are then uploaded to the website and attached to the code on the stkr.it sticker. Then the end-user just uses their smart phone (download app) or computer to access the data.
This cute growth chart (shown above and below) has different stickers at each milestone for the child. The parent can upload data for each milestone (like a message or video), to capture these important moments in a child’s life.
And how cute is this pillow cover? What makes this handmade item even more special is the crafter was able to attached an audio or video message using the stikr.it sticker for the recipient. This tag can then later be placed in a scrapbook to view again later. The stkr.it stickers can also be used for a variety of crafts, like this cute pin by Margot Potter.

Or this fun Valentine’s Day card that Margot designed for the stkr.it class at the Winter CHA 2013 show.
Now don’t think you are limited to just the black ink stickers!
The stickers are actually offered in several color choices to work with the user’s color themes.
They also sell these in packets of 2 or 8 unique coded stickers. You can also order special stickers that can be used on fabric crafts.
For those who have a special need for multiples of the same coded sticker, they also offer a packet of 10 identically coded black stickers. The potential for this product is interesting, I think my kids would love the fact they could upload a video or audio file that can only be viewed by people that they select, and being able to incorporate it into a craft project. With all the privacy issues occurring on social media, this might provide a safer method for people who want to be able to share information with only those that they invite to view it.
If you need more inspiration on ways to incorporate this product into your crafting projects, they do have a Stkr.it tutorial section on their website.
What do you think about the potential for adding audio or video clips to your gifts or craft projects?
