30 Days of Holiday Project Ideas with Xyron

Xyron has been cooking up some fun with the 30 Days of Holiday Project Ideas!  Be sure to watch the Xyron Facebook Page  each day to see all of the amazing projects.

I decided to decorate a jar - perfect for adding candy canes or some other little treat.

Begin by painting a mason jar with spray paint.  Using American Crafts Peppermint Express Collection, cut a 2.5" strip  ( Santa Stripes), and 1 1/2" strip (Ornamint).  Use the Xyron 3" Sticker Maker to apply adhesive to the two strips.  Glue the small strip to the center of the wider one.

Apply Xyron 1/4" Double-Sided High Tack tape along a stripe on each side of the paper. Remove the lining paper and sprinkle with ultra fine glitter.

Use your finger to burnish the glitter into the tape.  Brush away the excess glitter.

Wrap the paper around the jar, and trim the excess paper away before peeling off the backing.  Then remove the liner and adhere to the jar.  Tie a ribbon around the center.

Stamp the Crafter's Companion image Trimming the Tree from the Makey Bakey Mice collection, color with Copics and hand cut the image.  Use the Xyron/Teresa Collins Foam Adhesives to attach to the jar.  Finish with the American Crafts Peppermint Express Remarks Dimensional Adhesive Stars .
