I love sharing new obsessions with you guys!! When I got this little guy, I was SO EXCITED to post details I could hardly wait. Then I got online to see what other people thought about it and it looks like I'm not the only one who loves it... I found a bunch of blogs out there who use it just how I intended and it looks like I'm less original than I'd like... BUT for those of you who haven't even seen what I'm talking about... I'll STILL post how I intended!
Ready to see what "IT" is?
Xyron sticker maker! I LOVE adding detail to my stationary and when I saw that I could make ANY of my cute ribbons into 'decorative tape' I could not stop thinking about getting one of this guys! You can pretty much make ANYTHING a sticker!
ribbon, ric rac, left over fabric... etc, anything can be made into a sticker... I'll show you STEP-BY-STEP how because when I first got it I was really intimidated... but now that I know how simple it is- it's ridiculous how scared I was!
Pick whatever you want to make a sticker... I went with this adorable lace ribbon
Feed it into the top left opening...
As you drop it in, pull the bottom right tape dispensing side
That's pretty much it! Start pulling however much you want!
When you have your desired length, cut off the ribbon and feed the rest through.
Once the end is out, rip the tape off
Use something hard to press the ribbon firmly onto the tape roll. I used the handle of my scissors...
Peel the cellophane-like top off
Peel your ribbon (now sticker) off the wax paper-like tape backing
That's it! Now you can decorate ANYTHING!
Like these plain jane brown stationary cards
Card + envelope... Joon-ified.
I know this might be "duh" for a lot of y'all, but even if ONE person finds it as exciting as I did, it was worth the post!! Imagine how cute packaging and gifting can be now!
I cut out a piece of textured card stock in the shape of a heart and made the cutest little sticker. Everything I see is now in danger of being turned into a sticker with this machine... I even tried dropping a button down the chute hahaha! I think my next purchase is "the big one"... haha let me know if you knew about this, or you're just so uber excited that I shared and can't wait to go get one!!!
