Some of my favorite crafting tools I've had for years and are now my go-to staples in my craft closet. The Xyron sticker maker is one of them. Available in a variety of sizes, the sticker maker creates permanent and repositionable stickers from 1 1/2 inches up to 5 inches. The creation units are even available in charity options, like this pink ribbon for Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October. I love that the sticker makers are fun for crafters of any age. What might your children create?
|1. To start, cut a small piece of paper (or other materials) no larger than the allotted size for your sticker maker. For this one, it makes 1 1/2-inch stickers, so I punched smaller circles of colorful paper to turn into stickers. Insert the paper into the opening of the sticker maker.|
|2. As you insert the paper into the sticker maker, pull the adhesive end to activate the sticker maker rollers. The paper-and-adhesive combo sandwiches the paper and applies the adhesive.|
|3. As you insert the paper, make sure not to put them too close together. You'll run the risk of the stickers overlapping one another.|
|4. After the sticker has been pulled out of the sticker maker, rub the clear plastic to the paper and backing to activate the adhesive.|
|5. Pull the clear plastic off – your stickers are ready!|
