So I am not really a crafty person although I do try to be when I have the time and with a mom who is home ec teacher and teaches kids to sew you would also think I got her trait of ease at crafts but I didn’t and with all the fun stuff on Pinterest it can make anyone want to be a crafty person too! I found this Xyron Creatopia 3501-05-00 Multi Function Crafting Machine with Permanent Adhesive Cartridge on sale for $62.59 shipped (down from $149.99) on Amazon and thought of all the craft projects that could be done with it!
With this multi-function machine on duty, crafting enthusiasts can let their imaginations run wild. The unit’s generous size fits media up to 12 inches wide and 1/2 inch thick. To use, simply insert a designated cartridge and turn the handle to cut straight or decorative edges, to laminate photos or documents, to emboss scrapbook pages or emboss borders on greeting cards; or to add edge-to-edge adhesive (permanent, fabric, or repositionable) to items to make stickers, labels, and more. The machine can also cut shapes in paper up to 6-1/2 inches wide with leading dies. Best of all, it performs all these functions without heat, batteries, or electricity–making it a smart and safe choice for classrooms, office settings, or home crafting stations. A cartridge with 25 feet of acid-free permanent adhesive comes included. Accessories that can be purchased separately include various adhesive, laminate, and embossing cartridges, as well as five different cutting blade packs and a die press cartridge.
