DIY: Coloring Book Page Wall Art


Hello Everyone!

Today I have a fun announcement/mini review/ DIY post for you! 

As you all know, I'm part of Xyron's Creative Design Team which allows me to get the inside scoop on all things Xyron! Today I thought it would be fun to talk about a brand new product from Xyron that will definitely make your ''craft life'' much more enjoyable. That product being the brand new Xyron Creative Station Lite

Now if you're not familiar with Xyron's Creative Stations in general, they are basically machines which allow you to add adhesive, magnets or laminates to your projects. As of right now, Xyron makes a Creative Station which holds both 9 inch and 5 inch Creative Station cartridges. This machine is great for those bigger projects but sometimes you just want to make something little like a card. That is where the Creative Station Lite comes into play. 


Basically, the Creative Station Lite is everything that you love about the bigger Creative Station but just in a smaller footprint! The new Creative Station Lite holds both 5 inch and 3 inch Creative Station cartridges which make it great for those littler projects! It also has the same sleek design as the original Creative Station, which I personally like. 

The New Xyron Creative Station Lite will be making its World Launch on HSN March 16th. So if you want to learn more about the machine and see a live demo of the machine being used, I would definitely check it out! 

To give you an idea of what the Creative Station Lite can do, I came up with a simple project that allows you to turn those cool typographic like coloring book pages, into fun wall art!

Supplies
Canvas
Coloring Book Page
Paint
Foam Brush
Ribbon
Scissors


Step 1: Paint your canvas and set it aside to dry. 


Step 2: Grab your coloring book page and cut out the area you want to use for your wall art. 


Step 3: Slide your coloring book page cut out, through your Xyron Creative Station Lite machine. 


Step 4: Once your coloring book page cut out has been run through the Xyron Creative Station Lite machine, you're ready to add it to your canvas. Simply rub the top of the sticker paper and peel the coloring book page cut out off of the sticker paper. Then place your coloring book page cut out onto your canvas and press it down into place.


Step 5: Grab your ribbon and wrap it around your canvas, to get an idea of how much ribbon you will need. Then cut off that amount of ribbon and run it through your Xyron Creative Station Lite machine. 


Step 6: Once you have run the ribbon through the Xyron Creative Station Lite machine, rub the top of the sticker paper. Then peel the ribbon off the sticker paper and wrap it around the edges of your canvas.

When your ribbon has been added to your canvas, you're ready to hang up your new piece of wall art!

Wasn't that fun?

With all the different types of fun coloring book pages out there, the possibilities for this project are really endless! Also, I went with a simple design but you could get as detailed as you want. With that being said, if you're not starting out with a coloring book page that you already colored, I would only color in those portions that you will be using. That way it saves you time and doesn't run down your supplies (cause we all know that those markers don't last forever)! 

Since I made the announcement and showed you the DIY, I'm quickly going to give you my review on the Creative Station Lite. 

In a nut shell, I love this machine! Simply because it's easy to use, there is no mess with the adhesive and it takes up hardly any space. As a crafter, those are the things that I look for in products, so this machine delivers on all those levels!

As always to follow along with all the Xyron fun, don't forget to like them on Facebook and to follow their Pinterest page for more project inspiration.

So what do you think? Are you excited for this new Xyron Creative Station Lite?
