if the cut fits into the "X" then it will work. I have also used the larger sticker makers, with the crank. Just make sure that the tape you use is marker permanent. You can also get depositional tapes.
Yes, if it fits it will work. May I suggest when you take it out of the machine BEFORE you take the clear plastic off the top, use a stylus or embossing tool and trace around the edges (all of them) HARD. This will get the glue to let go easier.
1 more thing I like my ce2 but I have to rub a glue stick over the back of the letters and that gets sort of messy scrapsweet did you mention that you can run the letters from cricut through the xyron??? if so I need to get it !!!
Maybe the reason she never uses it is because the refills for the bigger ones are a bit pricey. The X (smallest one) refills cost about $5, the one that will take 12x12 paper is about $27 to $32. I use my Xyron for intricate peices that you would normally spread liquid glue on. Liquid glue is so messy and Xyron is not.
I love the entire line.
I didn't buy the "X" for many years even after I had my cricut. I would struggle to get liquid or glue pens on the entire piece. After using the "X" aka 150 I can't imagine not having it as a tool. I kick myself for waiting so long to purchase it. It is edge to edge adhesive coverage. I have used mine for buttons,small die cuts, ribbon (but that gets tricky) trip souvenirs.
I have had the one with the crank for years. My only complaint is that sometimes I get a "bad batch" of adhesive and have to return the cartridge. I usually wait until there is a coupon to buy more so they are less expensive.
I have an X and the Sticker Maker, which I think is the next size up. I love both of them. Usually, the X is perfect and works well for all my letters and other needs. I agree with southgirl - you should trace around the die cut with a stylus or bone folder with the plastic still on. This helps to ensure the adhesive sticks to your die cut and helps reduce the "gumminess" of the adhesive where you don't want it. Hope that makes sense. Also, I like buying the repositionable cartridge - I think it's a little more forgiving if you want to move things around.
I'm sure the tip about not using the machine is a cost saver but personally, I would prefer not to deal with the hassle. I've had my X for over 10 years and I've gotten pretty good at minimizing the waste. I usually only have about an 1" of waste, if that and I always buy my adhesive with a coupon. Try it without and if it's cumbersome, I say buy the little guy with a coupon. Good luck!
I linked up the products so you can see what I'm referring to. My X is super old and orange but I love it and use it all the time!
