Snapchat has all sorts of fun features that you probably use for hours. Who hasn’t tried face swap and enjoyed Snapchat’s stories too? Snapchat stickers are also a great feature that give your snaps your own personal touch. But are you sure that you’re taking full advantage of everything that Snapchat has to offer when it comes to stickers? For instance, did you know that you can quickly turn an object from a snap into a sticker? Here’s how to create and add custom stickers on Snapchat.

How to Make Custom Snapchat Stickers

Creating a sticker out of any object in an image is very easy. Follow the instructions below:

  1. Open Snapchat and take a snap like you usually would or add an image from your Memories or Gallery.
  2. After taking the snap, you’ll see various options on the upper-right side of your display. Tap on the Scissor tool and outline the object you want to turn into a sticker by using your finger.
