Xyron sticker maker – ten minute card.

Posted on 29 Jul 2015

I have fallen in love with my die-cutting machines all over again- why? Well because adhering those gorgeous
words and letters to my cards and layout are so easy. Let’s face it, most people who struggle with liquid adhesives should own a Xyron
of some sorts… These nifty little machines literally are taking away the struggle in my creative journey!
For today I made this ten minute card.

step 1 – On your craft sheet add some pink dye ink and mist with water.
step 2 – Dip a sheet of watercolour paper into the ink to and let it dry.
The ink will form a background to your die cut title.

step 3 – Die-cut some words out of grey cardstock using your Silhouette machine.

Step 4 – Place a permanent adhesive cartridge into your Xyron sticker maker.
Remember that there are refills available for your sticker maker so you can use it over and over again.
step 2

Step 5 – Insert the letters into the sticker maker. The arrow indicates the direction to insert the letters and shapes.
Remember to feed them in facing upwards as the adhesive is adhered to the back.
step 3

Step 6 – Pull the tape on the other side to feed the letetrs through the sticker maker.
step 4

Step 7 – Pull the tape just enough to clear the images or letters. Pull the tape upwards and tear it off on the cutting edge.
step 5

Step 8 – Use the palm of your hand or your Chiswick bone-folder to burnish the top of the tape.
This will ensure that the adhesive around the lettering will stick to the clear sheet that will be removed leaving you with a clean image.
step 6

For this card the lettering is adhered using the sticker maker – quick and easy!
