To start our March edition of "What We Love," we just want to take a moment and give a shout out to the Xyron community for helping us celebrate our 25th anniversary. We are so thankful for you and took note of every social media post. We heard from design partners including Anna Griffin and Teresa Collins, who said that Xyron is the foundation for her creativity! Wow! What a compliment. We also appreciate those of you who showed us your old Xyron machines. Thanks for dusting off your 510 Try It Like It. It is an oldie but goodie.
We’re going to keep the party going all year long, so please include the hashtag #25yearsofxyron on your posts and we’ll be sure to share them in our Stories.
And now, here are a few other favorite March highlights from around the web using Xyron products to create gifts, home decor, party items, and more!
Flower Garden Notecard Folio
Crafter and blogger Sue Eldred, over at the aptly-named Sue’s Creative Workshop, decided to usher in all things Spring by dreaming up and designing these unique Flower Garden Notecard Folios. Sue used the Xyron Creative Station to completely adhere the paper to the mat board without wrinkles and used Xyron Tape Runner to add the finishing touches.
She walks you through how she did it here.
‘You Are Loved’ Card
On her blog Up On Tippy Toes, crafter Mitsyana created a paper flower card that reminds the receiver that they are loved. She outlines the process step-by-step, using the Xyron Mega Runner to build the base, the Creative Station to die-cut the Mandala pattern, and the 3” Disposable Sticker Maker to add flair.
