Save the date – Xyron fridge magnets.

Posted on 28 Apr 2015

With our busy schedules that seem to be getting busier as each day goes past, I can use all the reminders possible for special occasions.
So for this year I am creating some fun “save the date” fridge magnets for my nephews birthday.
As insignificant this occasion is, it is still a momentous day for the little dude. A quick and easy design to save the date for his birthday celebrations turned into
a fridge magnet is so simple with the Xyron sticker maker.

magnet save the datestep 1 – Remove the permanent adhesive cartridge from the Xyron. Open the top of your machine and simply pull the cartridge upwards.
step 2step 2 Insert the Magnetic cartridge into the machine.
step 3step 3 – Print the cards onto white cardstock using your design. Insert the printed image face up into the front of the machine.
step 4step 4 – Turn the handle to feed the printed card through the machine. The card will be adhered to the magnet sheet
and at the same time covered with a laminated layer
step 5step 5 – Remove the card from the back of the machine. Use the cutting blade at the back of the machine to cut off the magnet.
step 6step 6 – Use your Tonic trimmer and cut off the excess magnet pieces. Don’t throw these away as we
will use them for another project later on.
step 7step 7 – These magnets are amazing and stick perfectly to the fridge – keeping me up to date with all those special occasions.
step 8I love the possibilities of the magnet maker – look out for more ideas using the magnet cartridge in the Xyron machine.
