If you're looking for a fun and creative way to spice up your online or in-person classes, presentations, chats, and other classroom activities, give Sticker Creator in Microsoft Designer a try! Sticker Creator lets you create stickers with the help of generative AI.

You can use the stickers in various Microsoft applications, such as PowerPoint, Teams, OneNote and Outlook. Or print them onto sticker paper and use them for grading, gifts, decoration, and more! Whether you’re looking to praise your students, motivate your colleagues, or simply decorate your space, stickers can help you do that in a more personal and playful way.

In this post, we'll show you some prompting basics for Sticker Creator and walk through four ways to make your lessons more vibrant and fun using stickers. Let's get started!

Prompting basics for Sticker Creator

First, navigate to the Microsoft Designer site. Once on the homepage, scroll down until you spot the Sticker Creator option and click on it. This will take you to the sticker creation platform.

Here, you will write a detailed prompt that serves as the blueprint for your desired sticker. Think of the prompt as your opportunity to communicate your ideas directly to the sticker generator.

Creating the perfect sticker begins with knowing what to prompt! While it's important to be descriptive and clear in your prompts, it's also crucial to maintain simplicity. Confusing or overly complicated prompts can lead to unexpected results. Try to strike a balance between detail and simplicity for the best outcomes.

In your sticker prompts, consider including specific elements such as color preferences, taglines, or significant objects. For example, if you're a teacher creating stickers for your classroom, you might ask for a sticker featuring an apple, a common symbol of education. Or you could ask for a sticker featuring elements of your school's mascot and colors.
