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.

I have tons of details and instructions on how to make laminated stickers Right Here.

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.)

Now, suppose that I wanted to make my business card into a laminated sticker. All I would need to do is run my business card through the Xyron machine above with the Permanent Adhesive cartridge, turning it into a sticker. Then, I could cut a piece of the Clear Laminate Roll pictured above and place it on top of my “stickered” business card and voila! A Laminated Sticker!

So I tried running various materials through the Xyron Creative Station Lite.
  • Wrapping Paper
  • Tissue Paper
  • Candy Wrapper
  • Napkin
  • Metal #DollarTree Word
  • Burlap Ribbon
  • 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.
