Our exciting collaboration with StickieMail has brought sticker makers to our store, providing endless creative ideas and fun for both parents and children.
Make stickers in 3 easy steps:
- Insert a picture (you’d like to turn into a sticker) into the Sticker maker
- Pull the adhesive strip through (careful you don’t pull too much)
- Tear and peel the sticker off
It’s that easy!! But don’t take my word for it – watch the Elly kids use the Sticker Maker at just 3 years old and 7 years old!
Both Lil S and Lil E had lots of (very serious) fun making their Mommy a Mother’s Day card using shapes and pictures they had cut and drawn on plain paper / construction paper. And guess what, you can too!
Join our Card Making Session this Saturday!
Make your own Mother’s Day Card this Sat, 6 May 2017, 2 – 5 p.m. at The Elly Store, #02-31 at Cluny Court. If you missed our Easter craft making workshop at Twelve by Elly and would like to find out how these nifty machines work, join us this Saturday in-store with Diana from StickieMail! Dads can bring the kids to try out the sticker makers and make Mom a Mother’s Day card at the same time! We’ll provide the paper, colour pens, sticker makers. Your kids will just have to bring their creativity along and colour away!
Now that we’ve gotten you curious, here’s abit more about how the Sticker Makers work.
Above: 1.5 inch sticker maker (refillable)
Above: 3 inch sticker maker (non-refillable)
The Xyron Sticker Maker comes in two width sizes – a 1.5-inch refillable version and the 3-inch non-refillable version to make larger stickers. The Sticker Maker adds an edge-to-edge acid-free adhesive to items up to 1.5 inch or 3 inches wide respectively and can be used on different materials such as ribbons, felt, die cut shapes, letters, borders and much more. No batteries or electricity required!
The Sticker Maker comes loaded with 20 ft of acid-free permanent adhesive which makes over 100 stickers. If you run out of the adhesive for the 1.5 inch Xyron Sticker Maker, you can always buy permanent or repositionable refills.
Above: 5 inch Creative Station Lite (refillable)
After trying and falling in love with the smaller 1.5-inch and 3-inch units, you might want to upgrade to a larger unit with more functions. Introducing the Xyron 5 inch Creative Station Lite, a compact all-in-one tool for adding adhesive, magnet or lamination to your creative projects. The Creative Station Lite comes pre-installed with a full-size 5 inch permanent adhesive refill cartridge. It does not require heat, batteries or electricity required and the drop-in refill cartridges allow you to switch between applications quickly. It accepts two different sized refill cartridges (5 inch and 3 inch sizes) minimising waste and maximising flexibility for your smaller sized projects. Your children (and you!) can use this Creative Station to make personalised cards, DIY planners/calenders, home/party decor, gift bags, school projects, labels or little sticky motivational messages. With the additional lamination and magnetisation functions, you can also create things like study flash cards for your school going children, alphabet cards for your toddlers and fridge magnets or recipe cards for yourself.
In this day and age where the iPad and mobile phones are so ingrained in kids’ everyday activities, parents can make this into an interactive fun bonding activity by crafting with your children and create useful projects at the same time.
Want to try one out? See you this Saturday May 6, 2017 between 2 to 5 p.m. at the store (watch our YouTube video to see how to get to Cluny Court!)
P.S. We think Sticker Makers might just be the next big crafting project since rainbow loom!
