Starting on Monday, November 18th, the Xyron design team is sharing 30 days of Holiday inspirational tutorials. Be sure to check the Xyron Facebook Page everyday for lots of fun projects featuring products from American Crafts, Imaginisce, Studio Calico, Crafter's Companion USA and Crate Paper-all held together with Xyron's fabulous adhesive, of course!!!!!
Presentation is everything! I have lots of teenagers to shop for, so you know I tend to purchase lots of giftcards! Blah, I know, but I refuse to give them in the plain ol' little envelope they come with. When I recieved Crate Paper's Bundled Up collection-my creative cogs in my noggin just started to spin!!!
Xyron- Glue Stick, 1.5" Create a Sticker (permanent adhesive refill), 5" Creative Station (permanent refill) Teresa Collins Adhesive Kit by Xyron (black foam squares) Crate Paper Bundled Up collection-Winter patterned paper and 72 Ephemera Pack, Mini kraft polka dot paper bag, Wilton 6" paper doilies, sequins
1. With Xyron's Glue Stick for Corners cover entire backside of paper doily and adhere to front of paper bag, letting a bit hang off right edge and trim off excess.
2. Cut a 3 1/2" circle from Crate Paper's Winter patterned paper from the Bundled Up collection, run thru Xyron's 5" Creative Station (permanent adhesive refill) and adhere to center of paper doily and trim off excess. Then run your chosen pieces of emphemera thru Xyron's 5" Creative Station (permanent adhesive refill)
3. Arrange, layer and adhere all of your emphemera in a astetically pleasing cluster on top of the patterned paper circle and doily. Choose one piece of ephemera and adhere with black foam squares from the Teresa Collins Adhesive Kit from Xyron-this will give a little bit more texture and dimension to your little work of art.
4. Sequins are so popular now and add the cutest bit of sparkle and texture to any project. Xyron's 1.5" Create a Sticker is the perfect way to apply adhesive to the backside of those little sparkly bits and provides a fantasticly strong way to stick them to your project!
Here is the perfect way to make even a giftcard feel extra special, the bit of extra effort is so worth it, when your reciepient is presented with one of these sweet little gift bags! Hope you are inspired to start creating your own little special gift presentations for this year's holiday season!
