Xyron Pinterest Challenge !

Hello and Happy Tuesday!
Today we have a wonderful post showing off some
Pinterest inspired projects .. we called it the 
Not Xyron, But SHOULD be! Board you can see all  {HERE}

The Xryon Designer each picked out some project
they like to create using their Xyron Adhesive & Tools

The Queen choose this adorable Egg Banner 
Here the photo that inspired my project 
Kara is the original designer post you can see {HERE}
Easy Easter Egg banner

Egg Banner~The Scrapbooking Queen 
I just love how easy this was to create 
using my Xyron 3” Sticker Maker.
You’ll need a cutting machine and a SVG file for egg shape and banner base. 
This can be done by hand just create a pattern for 
banner base and egg shape, it just takes a bit longer 
but reward is worth it! Either way you’ll love it. I got mine from Silhouette Store.
Cut out several cardstock paper eggs in 
different colors you will need 3 cuts for each color.
Banner base show in photo 6,
 I like odd number so I cut out 5 bases.
They are 4” by 5 “ and if cutting by hand just cut your
 center line first then match up by cutting both sides. 
This will create the same look as I did with my cutting machine.
Found the perfect paper with wording to re-create
 the look from my inspirational photo. Any paper will work and they 
used a book for the one in photo.
 Don’t want to use a book then choice a solid or pattern paper looks just as cute.
Score your eggs down the center before running them all through the Xyron 3” Sticker Maker
Stick them together to form a 3-D effect and place flat side onto your banner base.
Then string them all together with TWINE! Easy Peasy!

Here is another project I created too!

Straw Banners: The Scrapbooking Queen
This was a easy project created using my Xyron 2" Sticker maker. 
On my cutter I created a small banner 1/2 " by 4 ". Stamped 
some really cute sentiments on the backside
 of the textured paper (so the flat side). Ran them all through
 my Xyron 2" Sticker Maker. Gather up some straws
 and then wrapped the banner around the straw. 
Tip I learned is to put the ends of the banner together
 first then slide the straw through and press them together. Quick and easy !

Here is the original posting {HERE)

Easy with throw away straws and scraps of patterned paper or DIY Washi Tape

Hope you are inspired to create your own 
project with Xyron !
