CRAFT GIVEAWAY! Two Adhesive Tools from Xyron (CLOSED)

by Kelsey Norwood

in Giveaways

{The winner of the Xyron giveaway is…Brianne S., who said, “I love the idea of putting adhesive on a picture in one swipe. I think I would make stickers out of my letter punches. Thanks!” Congratulations! To claim your prize, email your address to me (kelsey[at]vanillajoy[dot]com) before the end of the week.}

I have really come to appreciate all the cool little gadgets that brilliant people have come up with since the birth and rise of scrapbooking. Today’s first two products are examples of amazing little inventions that you are going to love.

REVIEW

create a sticker xyron-150

Xyron has really come up with some unique adhesive products and machines to help you make stuff sticky – a very important part of paper crafting.

Before Xyron, there was really no good way to put glue on skinny embellishments for a scrapbooking page or card. I’m sure you know how frustrating and impossible it is to glue a tiny little letter or shape. The glue gets everywhere but on the embellishment and just ends up sticking to your fingers, right? Grrr!

Well, the Xyron Create-A-Sticker turns all those little things into stickers so you don’t have to mess with glue at all. Feed your embellishment into the machine, turn the handle, and pull it out the other side, sticky and ready to use. No more sticky fingers and gummy looking embellishments! (Click here to watch a little video on how it works.)

xyron adhesive-runnerAnother great product is the Xyron Adhesive Runner, which helps you glue big stuff. The Adhesive Runner lets you apply adhesive 4″ at a time! This product is great for pictures and other large elements. I always end up putting little bits of adhesive all over the back of my pictures to make sure they stick. The Adhesive Runner just takes one swipe!

Both these Xyron products are inexpensive tools that make crafting so much faster and easier!

THE PRIZE

One reader will win the Xyron 1.5″ Create-A-Sticker AND a 4″ Adhesive Runner.

I’ve had my Xyron 850 for over a decade now, and I still love it as much as I did the first day I got it. It hasn’t become outdated, it’s still easy to get cartridge refills, and it still works without a hitch!

A friend was telling me the other day that I could use a Xyron. Funny. I love cutting out a single image from a sheet of patterned paper and then using it as an embellishment somewhere else. Using the Xyron would be easier than glue on those tiny areas.

I would use the Xyron 150 primarily for embellishments and small die-cuts for my titles, cards, ATCs and altered book pages. The 4-inch Adhesive Runner is perfect for my 4 x 4 book pages, mini albums and altered rolos. I am so tired of the glue stick! Great giveaway!! So many uses for these products:)

Letters are the hardest thing for me to stick down on my scrapbook page – some part of the letter always ends up sticking to my fingers. This would make that so much easier – hmmmmm letters with out having to press out wrinkles – I think that would be grand!!! Thanks for the opportunity.

I would love to make my embellishhments/ diecuts from the cuttlebug etc… on cards sticky. I am so tied of using glue stick. Glue sticks and double stick tape can be messy and expensive. I think the Xyron would helpmake things quicker and less messy. I think this would make my projects a lot easier.

I have a tendency lately to add my own poetry to LO’s about my son, husband and close friends. I think it would be fun to turn lines or stanzas of poetry into stickers I could place in creative, yet functional locations on the page.

…. or decorate the outside of journals, grocery pads, and cd cases.

137 Lynette Chye March 16, 2009 at 8:41 pm

I love to make sticker with it. When some of my kids’ favourite sticker become not sticky aymore, I just run it through the stciker maker again and whala! a new sticker.
