Snapchat is always trying to find features to keep us entertained. You just can’t help but waste time with features such as face swap and real-time video effects. Now, it got a feature that will make you never want to close the Snapchat app ever again.

The custom stickers on Snapchat you create can come from objects on your everyday snaps. Is there a frame on your living room wall that you just love and want to include in all your future snaps? Thanks to this new feature can do that and here’s how you can do it on Android and iOS app.

First, you’ll need to make sure that you are running on the latest version of Snapchat. To check if you have an update pending open the Google Play app and tap on the hamburger icon on the top left of your display.

Tap on My Apps & Games and if you have any updates pending they will be the first ones at the top. Tap on the Update All.

Now that you’ve updated Snapchat (if it was necessary) you can begin making your custom Snapchat stickers. Locate whatever it is you want to turn into your custom stickers. It’s important that the image has plenty of light and that there aren’t a lot of dark areas as well.

You can either create your custom stickers from a snap you take directly from the app, or you can use a camera app you already have on your phone. Do you have the picture ready? If so let’s proceed to the editing tools.

Click on the scissor icon and trace on the outside of the object that you want to turn into a sticker. Make sure that you’re very careful when drawing outside of the object. There is no erase option once you’re done. The trace line is also thick so take that into consideration before you start.

You will see the sticker you’ve created the second you lift your finger off the display. The sticker will automatically be added to your sticker library, and that also includes all the bad stickers you may have created. Your sticker will look small but it will get as big as you want by zooming in on it.

Add Custom Stickers to Snaps

Whenever you want to add the stickers you created in any future snaps, just tap on the third icon down once you’ve taken the snap. It will take you to all the stickers you ever created. The placement of the icons will differ on the iPhone or iPad app and everything else remains the same.

There is no option to discard the bad ones you created right after making them, but it would be a good idea if Snapchat added that option in the future.

If you want to delete the stickers that didn’t come out so well take a snap of anything and tap on the third icon down. Tap on the scissors icon at the bottom and you’ll see a message that will tell you to long-press on whatever sticker you want to erase and then drag it to the trash icon.

I can never get enough of tech in general, whether it's Android or web apps but helping others solve their tech problems also brings great satisfaction. I carry a device wherever I go, and I'm always connected. Life without the Internet just sounds too scary to me. :-)
