How to Use a Sticker Maker
I use the Xyron Creative Station, which I really like. Xyron also makes smaller machines that are disposable, but can only handle paper up to 5″ or 7″. I wanted a machine that was able to use whole sheets of paper.
I love that you can change out the sticker cartridge to laminate stuff without electricity. I volunteer at my daughter’s school and the lamination process is serious stuff. So, I appreciate how simple this machine is.
“Machine” isn’t quite the right word because these xyron machines aren’t electrical. There’s a crank that you use to move the paper through the machine.
- Open the front of the machine.
- Slide the paper in. Move it to the left side.
- Use the crank to roll the paper through.
- If I’m making more than 1 sheet of stickers, I leave a small gap in between the papers.
- When the paper is all the way through, use the paper cutter to cut the sticker paper layer.
- Take the paper out and smooth it to make sure the paper is secured to the sticker paper.
- Remove the clear plastic layer and use scissors to cut the stickers apart. You can also use a paper cutter where possible.
