Technique/Tool Tuesday - A Sticky Situation

I love my Xyron Machines! First of all I love any machine that does not take batteries and does not need to be plugged in. Just some good old-fashioned manual power does the trick. Here is my family of products and each machine serves a specific purpose for me.




So as you know the number on the xyron represents the size of the paper it can take, like these 150's can take paper up to 1.5 inches in width. I use these the most especially when working with my cricut or slice machines. I get total even, non messy coverage on the smallest of cuts.




My 510 can handle paper up to five inches in size and comes in handy when I am doing craft fair projects. I have a variety of cartridges for this machine including the two sided lamination and the one side lamination and other side magnet cartridges.




My 250 is great when making cards, again I get all over coverage and this one is big enough to put a couple of cuts through at a time but small enough to not be bulky or in the way when I am creating. One of my favorite tricks with the xyrons is to put an image in right-side down and then cover the sticky part with glitter for a quick and easy sparkly accent.

WOW that's fantastic!

I have the one you sent me, that my ignorant behind refuses to learn how to properly use. So since it's purple, it's sitting on my scrap table looking pretty, like me!
