Xyron Sticker Maker tutorial and tips!

I put together a quick tutorial on the Xyron 5" sticker maker for a really sweet scrappin momma. Sorry it took so long to get it posted but Youtube decided to give me an error after an hour and twenty minutes so I had to start all over! I hope this helps and watch for the tip on how to get those little "Boogers" off your die cuts BEFORE removing them from the backing!

  2. Thanks for tip on "boogers". I've got all 4 sizes of xyron and I use them every time I craft, but rubbing off the excess glue by hand is messy and a pain.

  3. It works like a charm Jen! No more rubbing off by hand! Thanks for watching!

  4. I have one in each size. I have the larger one also. They are great. I have found sales on the refills. Thank you for the video. It was very helpful on removing the glue.

  5. I also have all 4 sizes of the Xyrons and love them, but also hated that sticky residue (AKA Boogers) left behind. I will definitely use your method to get rid of them next time I use my Xyron. Thanks so much.

  10. Love my Xyron too- I have the larger one and use it for everything! Probably laminating and magnets the most. My sticky paper I save for actual sticker type projects or large items and use my tacky tape, dots, and such for other things. Great tip though, I always took it as "part of the process" to get the excess out of my cuts... with laminating too I like to cut it out w/ my blade so it has a cleaner look!

  11. I have the 5" xyron and haven't been able to use it in the last 6 months. Somehow it came apart inside and won't work! :-( I've searched and can't find videos on how to reload the sticky paper and the back paper - every time I try, I waste more and more! I'm so frustrated so any help you can offer would be greatly appreciated it!! HELP!
