Xyron 150 Tutorial

Well, it is so nice to follow the "dip queen", Beth(see yesterday's post)!! No, I don't have a recipe, but I do have a little tutorial that will make you life much easier and totally fun!


So, how many of you own the Xyron 150? You know that little "X" adhesive machine? Maybe you have used it once or twice, or maybe you've never gotten it out of the box!! I won't ask you to raise your hands, because I wouldn't want to embarrass you...but you know who you are! :D

Here's a little tutorial on how to use it so you can get the most out of this cool tool! You can use the Xyron 150 with anything that is up to 1.5" wide and a thick as a nickel. In this tutorial I am using a piece of cardstock, but try it with ribbon, letter die cuts, and rickrack, too. It will give you edge to edge adhesive and turn your item into a sticker.
So here's your Xyron 150. AS you can see, it fits easily in the palm of your hand and is the perfect size to pop into your crop bag.









The adhesive refills come in either permanent or repositionable. I personally only use permanent, but the repositionable adhesive is great to use with your die cut letters, so you have time to play with the placement and can get them straight. The refills slip in and out of the bottom and will "click" into place. You will be able to see what type of refill is in the machine through the little side window.







Slide your paper into the top until it touches the adhesive.










Pull it out from the bottom until the entire piece comes through.













Tear it off at the plastic serrated edge.











Rub your finger on the top plastic piece to ensure that all the adhesive is on your paper.







Pull off the top plastic...











And now your paper is a sticker with edge-to-edge adhesive.









You will not want to be without this great little tool now that you know how cool it is!!

Enjoy! :D
