Xyron sticks to MFT

PrintIt’s the beginning of some special fun posts on the My Favorite Things Blog this week. My Favorite Things meets Xyron!

I have looooong had a Xyron Sticker Maker. It was probably one of the first crafty tools I owned, so I’ve been a fan of Xyron’s stickiness for many years πŸ˜‰

Here is the project I made for this collaboration:hawkins_jill_five_wmThe most important thing when making an inlaid card is adhesive–and LOTS of it. For this I used the Xyron Mega Runner. It worked famously for laying down bulk adhesive and I was pret-ty excited! I go through a lot of adhesive, but this Mega Runner holds so much, I have yet to come close to needing a refill…and I’ve been using this since the lovely folks at Xyron sent it to me! Loving it for sure!! πŸ™‚

hawkins_jill_five_under_wmThe ‘5’ comes off the card, and using the Xyron Magnet Tape, it becomes a magnet! How awesome is that!? I just love that the card serves double duty and the recipient can use the 5 on their fridge, or wherever πŸ™‚ But I also wanted the card to have its own life and not be naked, so I just inlaid another 5, slightly dressed up too :).

hawkins_jill_five_magnetback_wmThe Xyron Magnet Tape is just like a roll of basic tape. One side is sticky and you just pull it out, tear it off on the teeth, and stick! Voila! Easy peasy! πŸ™‚

hawkins_jill_five_magnet_wmHere are a couple quick photos I snapped while making my card. The first one shows how I laid out the pieces. Right after this photo, I completely covered the white typing paper with the Mega Runner adhesive. That is the key to inlaid die cutting. Do not cut corners on this because inevitably, that is the part that will pop off. Ask me how I know πŸ˜‰hawkins_jill_five_progressThis next photo shows you how the pieces are all well stuck and then die cut again into a nice tidy panel πŸ™‚
