16 life hacking with paper stickers
A Life / / December 19, 2019
I do not know about you, but personally I have stickers rarely used for its intended purpose. Notes I am in electronic form, and record anything on sticky notes simply do not need. Fortunately, there are more fun and useful ways to apply stickers than cover them unimportant inscriptions.
1. Dust collector for drill
We need to do a small hole with a drill in the wall of plasterboard, table of particle board or similar thing? Optionally, spread on the floor of the newspaper. Attach the paper notes under the seat hole, bend it, and improvised trap for dust turnings and ready.
2. Marking where to drive in a nail
Another little life hacking home worker. Hang pictures, mirrors and shelves on the walls easy when you know where to drive in nails. Here are just a pencil or marker often left unsightly marks. Therefore it is possible to put a point on a sticky piece of paper, place it in the right place and hammer a nail, and then simply remove the sticker, tearing it.
3. substitute line
If the hand is not a ruler, and a more or less flat line is necessary, affix a sticker and spend a pen or pencil along its edge. Unstick an auxiliary paper is then very easy.
4. cable marking
Those with a lot of electronics in one place (such as a computer, laptop, router, Tablet and smartphone on a table), can be easily confused how much cable is connected. If you do not want to buy an organizer for cables and place all the "feng shui", you can simply mark them with a sticker. Cut out leaf label, sign and wrap around the wire: it is easier to identify what is connected where.
5. Cable Organizer
They can not only mark the stickers, but to gather together. To do this, cut the sticky part and wrap it a group of wires. Suitable for headphones, chargers, and other little things that go awry and so tries.
6. Cleaning the keyboard
Clean delicate miniature gadgets like the Apple Magic Keyboard is simple. But to remove the dust that collects between the keys of full-size keyboards, - the task of a long and dreary. You can, of course, to disassemble the entire device, or could move between the keys with a cotton swab, but it's easier and faster to collect dirt and debris from the adhesive side of the paper to take notes. Cheap and cheerful.
7. Drink Holder
If the mug with hot coffee leaves on the desktop, an ugly mark, it can be placed under a stack of sticky notes. Get improvised stand. Just better not to opt for these purposes, brightly colored leaves, otherwise marks will leave them already.
8. Sorting small parts
You try to build your own retrokonsol of Raspberry Pi or simply disassembling the laptop to clean the dust? Stickers help you not to lose any of the small screws that are so fond of roll off the table and disappear without a trace. To cleave the small details to the adhesive side of the paper, and they will be safe. You can still sign what and where you will be screwed.
9. The calendar
Google Calendar - thing is certainly convenient, but some believe it is not enough visible. Designer and blogger Laura Doty offers own version calendar organization, which can be hung on any vertical surface. All that you need - stickers, marker and space. Plus this calendar - you can easily change the "cell", if you wish to schedule a new task.
From stickers make great bookmarks. Sign them as you please. If necessary, the leaf can be cut into several parts in order to get a more narrow strips. And if you do not want the pages of the book dealt with the sticky part, it can simply be cut off.
11. Hiding place for coins
In Hollywood films often found moments when the hero hides money or other valuables in the book, cutting out the middle of it. If you are a bibliophile, and the thought of that disfigure the masterpieces of literature, leads you into the horror, using for this purpose not tomes, and a thick wad of adhesive sheets. So you can hide the notes, ornamentation, Keys or something like that.
12. menu planner
Designer Mickey Provost recommends to create a kind of sticker-page menu with a special template. Useful for those who make up the diet for seven days ahead: athletes, losing weight and other conscious individuals who can not afford to have everything, when he wants to. Sign each sheet day of the week and specify what and when you eat. If your diet changes planned easily replaced.
13. Printing paper
Designer Jen Hadfield I came up an original way to use sticky notes: print them using a regular printer. For this you need a simple template. Make a copy of it on a sheet of A4, then attach the stickers (sticky end in the direction in which the printer pulls paper for that matter). Then, place the template on the computer the desired images, text, charts, place a sheet of stickers in the tray, and send the file to the printer. So you can do everything from beautifully decorated and records to Photo from Instagram.
Similarly, on the stickers can be printed letters as recommends Designer Kelly Mindel. Of these, then compiled the messages that will be very noticeable. One tiny sticker on the fridge is not easily uglyadet, but to miss a number of leaves from which the phrase (eg, greeting), is more difficult.
If you have so many stickers that simply nowhere to go, create a mosaic. It's enough leaves in two colors, but the more colors you use, the better. For example, David Stark designer makes of labels is quite interesting patterns.
Mosaic - it's cute, but three-dimensional crafts more interesting two-dimensional. can be created from stickers and more origami. It's easy and fun.
Designer Angus Fergusson done sheets of bright garland. It takes a long time, but it is original and cheap. Connect the adhesive side of the sticker with the smooth side of the next, and will do the same.
