My Fav Christmas Present and Washer Necklaces

I was so excited to open the present from my Mom on Christmas Eve! She gave me a Xyron 500 create a sticker! I was so jazzed when I opened it. I have been making stickers ever since!

I can't wait to make some cards and make all my die cuts into stickers:)
The machine is really easy to use. There is no plugging it in and no batteries. Just load whatever it is you want to make into a sticker and turn the knob clockwise and ta daa! It's a sticker. Too cool.

I have also been getting really obsessed about stamping with metal stamps. I bought a set of metal stamps yesterday at Ace Hardware for 29.99. A little spendy, but they last forever. I know you can buy them on the internet too. Here is the link to Harbor Freight: Their prices are really reasonable, but I was too impatient to wait for mine in the mail:)

I am posting a few washers that I stamped yesterday and it was actually really easy! I did in on my garage floor, which was stinkin' cold, but it was worth it.

I messed up on the "A" on the Faith washer, but not bad for my first try, huh?

I am planning on making a lot more and attaching beads to them, and anything else I can get my hands on! They are sooooo fun!!

Anyone doing anything exciting for New Years Eve? I am going to try and stay up til Midnight. We shall see.....Happy New Year!!


  1. That looks like a fun little machine. I wonder if one could use scraps of fabric and make stickers with it. I have tons of those...What do you think?

  2. COOL! I totally need a sticker maker for promo stuff for my store. I didn't know they were so affordable :)

  3. Hey, I'm with ya all on that Xyron 500, it looks like a really neat machine. Something I could probably spend hours and hours playing with. :D

  4. I am sure you could make fabric scraps into stickers to....hmmmm, I will have to try that! Thanks for your comments y'all!

  5. I love those sticker makers. I have the little 2" one & then the big 9" one. I think my kids actually have the 5" one as well. Wish the sticky paper was a tad cheaper though, I would use it more :)

    When my 8 year old was younger, she used to always break the paper in half on the 2" one. Now I have a bunch of broken rolls. I used to get so mad, then I realized I could make paper into stickers by hand, by patting the adhesive on the paper. I actually got more use out of the adhesive because I could use more of it. It wasn't as easy & smooth a process though as rolling it through!


Thank you so much for your comments...I love them!!
