Xyron

Do you make any crafts for the holidays? I am a crafter and love spending time creating holiday decorations and gifts. It is something that I look forward to doing every year. However, this time of year is also very hectic, so I don’t always have a lot of time to spend creating something spectacular for my home, friends or family. I am always looking for excellent craft ideas that are quick, simple, cute and thoughtful. I found a beautiful project from Xyron, if you are a crafter like I am you are going to love this project!

If you aren’t familiar with Xyron, they offer a variety of adhesive products ideal for a variety of craft projects. One of the products is the 1.5” Sticker Maker it is perfect for adding small embellishments to your projects. I use mine all the time for card making and scrapbooking. It is ideal for ribbon; die cut shapes, buttons and more. The unique X shape makes it easy to make your sticker or add adhesive to an embellishment. You just insert the desired item, pull thru and peel the sticker. It is that easy! No fuss no muss. My favorite feature about the 1.5” sticker maker is that it is refillable. Xyron has a nice assortment of adhesive products for all of your craft needs. Additionally, here is a fantastic Christmas project that showcases the Xron products.
