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!
