Have you ever used the Xyron Sticker Maker (X Machine) to adhere ribbon? It seriously is the best way to adhere it to your cards or any of your craft projects. It keeps it laying down flat to the surface. The Xyron sticker maker is also a great way to adhere diecuts.

Designer Crafts Connection With Rinea Blog Hop

This month the Designer Crafts Connection designers are working with Rinea Foiled Paper.  Rinea foiled paper is a paper essential for all crafters. It is paper that is sandwiched between two thin pieces of foil. You can do anything you can do with paper but because of the foil, it will hold its shape. It comes in a variety of shimmering colors and textures. I used the Rinea Florals Variety Foiled Paper Variety Pack to create the flowers on my card.

Decorating Wall Letters With Xyron

Hello! Today I am sharing how I decorated some chipboard letters to hang up in my daughter's room using Xyron.


I took step out photos to show you all how I did it but for some reason, my camera decided to glitch out on me and I lost them all. I will do my best to explain everything and not confuse you all.
I first painted the letters with some black paint. My daughter's room is pink and black so I found some patterned paper that I matched her room well. The paper I used also has a texture on it but you can use any kind of paper you like. Since the paper was 12x12, I cut each one in half so they were 6x12. This way the paper would only be halfway up the wood letters. I then flipped the letters and traced them onto the backside of the patterned paper. I traced them onto the backside so I didn't have any pencil lines on the paper and flipped the letters backward so they would be the right direction from the front side of the paper.  I then cut the letters out.


Once the paper letters were all cut out, I then ran them through my Xryon Creative Station using the 9" Permanent Adhesive Cartridge making sure that the patterned side of my paper was facing up. I then lined the paper letters up onto the front of the painted wood letters and adhered them down.


Next, I took some rhinestone ribbon that I had and ran strips of it through my Xyron X Sticker Maker. Taking the entire strip of ribbon, I adhered it about a half inch down from the top of the patterned paper going straight across, even over the cut out areas of the letters. Then turning the letters upside down, I used a craft knife and cut the areas out I did not want the ribbon to be.


Then I attached some flowers and hung the letters up in her bedroom. This really was quite simple to make and my daughter loves it!
