Today another group of crafters have joined together with a group of crafts to show…
I recently discovered a new gadget, called a Sticker Maker machine. I am soooo excited to tell you all about it! In fact, I even made a video (with the help of my 10 year old daughter) to show it to you! The amazing thing about this sticker machine, is that it works with NO ELECTRICITY!!! No, this is not like a thermal laminator that you plug in. This is a little portable machine that works by turning a little hand crank.
First of all, What kind of stickers are you making? What do you want to do?
Do you want to:
- Use a Cricut to make laminated stickers ?
- Make laminated stickers using just a printer ?
- Make laminated stickers without a printer or any other gadget ?
- Use a Xyron Creative Station to make laminated stickers ?
Are you looking for:
- Sticker templates ?
- Self laminating Sticker Supplies ?

I could not believe it myself when I first saw it. I just HAD to buy one and see if it worked. And it does!! Amazing, right?! I loved this little sticker maker immediately.
This is not a sponsored post. All opinions are my own. In fact, in my video I show you a couple of ways that the Xyron Sticker Maker does not work. Keep reading to find out about some of the things it can do!
Wrapping Paper, AFTER!
Not only can it turn paper into a sticker, it can laminate without heat, without electricity! It can also add a magnet to paper or a business card. Just insert the correct cartridge.
If you want to Laminate something without a machine– guess what– you can!
Basically, the way this works is just like a giant roll of clear packing tape. It is sticky on one side. I put my business card on it, folded it over, and sealed the edges. Then I trimmed off the excess laminate. (The roll pictured above is no longer available, but this one is very similar.)
So I tried running various materials through the Xyron Creative Station Lite.
- Wrapping Paper
- Tissue Paper
- Candy Wrapper
- Metal #DollarTree Word
- Business Card
Watch our video to see how the Sticker Maker works, and to watch me try stickerizing different things!
Another way that I made Laminated Stickers was using a thermal laminator.
