Happy Hump Day! Xyron is hosting a “Not Xyron, but Should Be” Blog Hop this week. The idea of this blog hop was take craft projects posted on Pinterest where Xyron products could be the star, but was not and make Xyron a star with our own spin on the project. I chose coasters!
Pinterest Inspired Project
It wasn’t a huge stretch for me since I had some extra limbs laying around from a recent tree removal that I have been wanting to slice up and turn into coasters AND that is exactly what I did!
It was so simple to make by having my Xyron 5 inch Creative Station w Laminate/Permanent Adhesive and Xyron 3 inch Sticker Maker at arms reach!
Here is how I did it (full supply list provided at the end of this post):
Measure the wood slices and make templates according to the sizes you need (I used my Cricut Expressions and cartridge Plaintain School Book Circle cut). Using cork, burlap, and linen trace and cut out circles.
Once all circles are cut, run each though the Xryon 3 inch Sticker Maker, burnish, peel and stick on top of the wood slices. Yes! It is that easy! Now you could just stop there, but why . . .?
Using some favorite scrapbooking paper, punches, ink and stamps and glue to create a fun embellishment for each coaster. I happened to use American Crafts 6×6 Neapolitan paper pad, cut out the mason jars and punched some coordinating circles, inked the edges and uses sentiment stamps from Joy’s Life – Everyday Occasions stamp set.
Now for the icing on the cake! Take the paper embellishment and run it through Xyron’s 5 inch Creative Station using the Laminate/Permanent Adhesive cartridge.
Burnish,free cut the embellishment, peel off the backing and stick!
This will allow each to stick to the coaster while protecting the paper embellishment from the job hazards of coasters!
Genius right? Not really, but I think it is really cool that Xryon makes products like the Laminating/Permanent Adhesive or my cute coaster embellishments would be soggy before my first refreshing sip.
Head over and check out the other amazing projects they are cooking up along this blog hop HERE!
