What a Gem! (07 March 2009)
This is an affordable must-have for any scrapper! I originally purchased it to use with smaller letters, embellies, etc. cut from my cricut. After dealing with the nightmare of liquid glue and glue pens getting EVERYWHERE, I decided there had to be a better way - and there was! I absolutely love this little gem of a machine. It's incredibly easy to use and for under $10 you can't beat what it can do. You just drop it in the top and pull it out the other side. I've found that using any of the tools that come with your rub-on packs around the edges takes care of any extra adhesive.
Before I purchased this little guy, I thought about getting one of the larger ones, but I figured I'd only be using it when I used my Cricut so I didn't want to spend the extra money. But it turns out that this is the perfect size, anything too big to put in the X is big enough to use with a different adhesive. It turns out I use this for all kinds of things, not just for the Cricut. If you put chipboard letters through, face down, it'll apply adhesive to the top and then you can sprinkle it with glitter, flocking, or whatever you like. You can also do this to get adhesive on both sides by running it through once, peeling off the top, turning it right-side-down, and running it through again. I also run my ribbons through it and, voila, self-adhesive ribbon. It really opens up a lot of creative possibilities. Thanks Xyron, for creating such a great product at an affordable price!
