In this short mini-tutorial we’re going to look at how you can recolor single color digital planner stickers (or indeed any digital stickers) using Microsoft Paint.

If you haven’t already taken a look at the new Microsoft Paint it is definately worth investigating. As well as being able to draw, we can also flood fill areas, which means we can color coloring pages, change the color of black and white images – and of course, customize digital planner stickers to match our planners.

Using this technique you can recolor any text stickers, shapes etc. This works best with big bold shapes and designs.

Before You Start…

Before you start, check that the user agreement from the designer allows for their work to be amended or adapted. This is absolutely fine with any stickers you download from here at Make Breaks – so practice on my stickers if you like.

To Recolor Stickers Using Microsoft Paint

Open the PNG file and select the ‘Paint’ option. Then choose the bucket icon on the tool panel. Select the color you want and click where you want this color applied. The color will flood fill the area you select. In this example it colors the whole of a single letter. If the letters were combined, it would color the combined area.

Remember to save the image using a different file name 🙂


That’s all there is to it!
