Happy Holly Days

Christmas is my favorite time of the year,

and this weekend we’re decorating the house for the Holidays!

Being a crafter, I like to make a few new decorations to add to the mix every year.

The black and white buffalo plaid “Merry” letters are a quick Holiday project

made even easier with the help of my Xyron Creative Station®*.

(FYI…make sure to read to the end for a chance at an awesome giveaway)

Making it Merry with Xyron

  • Directions:
  • After choosing the word to use, lay and space out the letters. Measure the length of the board that you will need for your base. Cut a groove into the center of the board the thickness of the letters.
  • Paint the board and wood letters with black acrylic paint.
  • Cut pieces of scrapbook paper that are slightly larger than the letters.
  • Place the paper, design side up, into the Xyron® Creative Station*.  Turn the handle of the Xyron® Creative Station* to run the paper through the machine.  As the paper goes through the machine it adds a complete layer of adhesive to the back of the paper.

  • Remove the paper from the backing and stick it directly onto the letters.
  • Smooth over the letters to make sure that everything is stuck down.
