Featured Product Friday: {Creating with Xyron}

by Amy Bowerman

Do you like glue on your pants or under your fingernails?  Me neither!  Today on Featured Product Friday I’m showcasing one of my all time favorite adhesives…Xyron!  Xyron has a range of adhesive applicators and machines.  What I like best about Xyron is that it’s mess free!  Messy glues and hardcore adhesives have their place for some projects but for the majority of your creative ventures Xyron can help you “Make it Stick”…without the mess!  I’m giving away some fun Xyron prizes so be sure to enter for your chance to win one of these “Must Have” craft products :)

Behold my fleet of Xyron products!  My little Adhesive Army is ready for battle at a moments notice.  These guys have helped me out of “Sticky Situations” for as long as I’ve been creating…that’s a VERY long time!

Featured Product Friday: {Creating with Xyron} Projects, tips and More! | Pluckingdaisies.com Xyron has many other creative options that complement their adhesive line and work with most of these machines including laminating and magnet cartridges…just to name a few.  Today I will be focusing on how Xyron can help you “Make it Stick” and my personal favorite Adhesive machines!

Xyron Create-A-Sticker 1.5″

 

This little guy is perfect for small projects.  It’s small and ultra-portable so you can make stickers on the go!  Don’t be fooled by its small size, “X” marks the spot on this tiny, creative treasure!

Use your 1.5″ Create-a-sticker for creating your own custom washi tape or run ribbon or fabric strips through it for a mess free trim application.  You can check out how I used my ribbon to create Heart Favor Bags HERE.

I have a fun surprise for you guys!  My dear friend Johnnie from Saved by Love Creations will be joining me here on out for Featured Product Friday from here on out!  Johnnie is the 50+ Project queen and the creator of the ORIGINAL Mason Jar Roundup…she’s also a creative genius IMHO :)

She has a fantastic Jewelry making tutorial using the 1.5″ create a sticker for you  on her blog.

Xyron Create-a-Sticker 2.5″

 

If you need bigger stickers or want to work with larger embellishments and trims like die cuts etc.  The Xyron 2.5″ Create-a-sticker is for you!  What you don’t have one?  Well we’ll have to fix that!  Xyron has provided me with a 2.5″ in Create-a-sticker to give away to one of you.  I also have a Xyron Mega Runner to give away.  Xyron was kind enough to send me one too and let me tell you the Xyron Mega Runner is the “Iron Man” of tape runners!

One of my favorite things about the 2.5″ Create-a-Sticker is how much Kids LOVE it!  Something about that crank or perhaps the whole “Sticker Machine Magic”  delights them young and old!

You can see the 2.5″ create-a-sticker and the Mega Runner in action with this Kid’s Card Tutorial.  Plus I have a free printable for your just in time for a last-minute Mother’s Day gift!

Xyron Creatopia

The Xyron Creatopia pretty much does it all!  It’s truly an All-in-one machine!  I have yet to try the extra components yet since I’ve been too enamored with its power to make GINORMOUS stickers!

Featured Product Friday: {Creating with Xyron} Projects, tips and More! | Pluckingdaisies.com Earlier this week I used my Creatopia to assemble this darling Strawberry heart box for Teacher Appreciation week.  You can find a full Tutorial Here.

Teacher Appreciation Heart Box Strawberry Tutorial | Pluckingdaisies.com It’s so much easier to peel and stick pieces as opposed to making a sloppy mess with wet glue!

Now about those GIANT Stickers…my Creatopia single-handedly helped me throw the best Skylanders party EVER for little man’s birthday this past fall.

DIY Character Gift Bags | @PluckingDaisy #SkylandersGiants #party #DIY @DollarTree

His friends were so impressed by the gigantic Skylanders stickers adorning buckets, bags and everything in between…all created with Xyron!  You can check out all of my Skylanders party posts HERE.  You can use your Creatopia to create giant stickers out of anything you can print or cut out :)

Love, Love, Love Xyron! Using the 1.5 today to help with favors for our church Mother/Daughter banquet. Saves from waiting on the glue to dry. Just put it in and tada I have stickers! Peal and stick!

Kelli I can assure you it IS! I was a bit gun shy of large tape runners after using another brand that proved to be nothing but a sticky mess. The mega runner is top notch! I love that it has a flip down cover to protect the adhesive when not in use :)

Good luck!
