Back To School with Xyron

Well here I go !!!, This week I'll wave bye bye to my three kids as they start another school year.  All the books are covered and labelled and thanks to my Xyron Mega Runner and 5" Creative Station it was all done in super fast time!.  I have also being having fun with my Silhouette Cameo and if you haven't had a look around their design library you are soooooooooo missing out!. Be warned though, it's just as addictive as Pinterest and you will be spoilt for choice. Remember to follow the Xyron Blog every day too for more Back to School projects.

How it's Made

Once you have resized the design and ungrouped the pieces you can then bring onto the cutting mat on screen the elements in the order you wish to cut them.  I started with the Pencil base and Lead banding.

Place the card on the matt watching the grid lines on screen to ensure that you have a large enough area covered.  Below is the design cut out.

Next up is the eraser, tip and lead for cutting

Once all elements have been cut out then you can emboss them to add texture to your project

Gotta love the eBosser!!!, 

Once all elements have been embossed then you can start assembly. I used the Xyron 6mm High Tack Tape on all the folding flaps

For the pencil tips and lead i used the Xyron 3" Sticker Maker

Before assembly put the pencil tips in place

Peel off the wax strips and working your way around the top join the edges together

For the banding I used my Xyron 1.5" Create a Sticker

Wrap the backing around the 'Eraser' lid

Now to decorate, I used the 'I love School' Title by Jamie Koay (Design ID #6721) from Silhouette Library

To assemble use the Xyron 3" Sticker Maker

Dab the embossed star with an ink pad and apply all the pieces to the front of the box.
