You can use \framed to create a box which takes the size of its content. 
The borders
of the framed box can be used to cut the stickers and with the 
frameoffset key
(or offset if your prefer) you can increase the distance between the borders
and the content.

\setuplayout[page]

\starttext

\centerbox
    {\startframed[width=10cm,align=normal,frameoffset=1cm]
         \input ward
     \stopframed}

\stoptext
