I love Xron products!
This little gem has been great with the Cricut but also buttons and even ribbon. This is not only convient but I find it to be a time saver. When I do layering items like flowers or letters this will get it done fast and efficiently. It gives an even layer of adhesive especially helpful on ribbon.
I can also pre-adhere my cut outs for a crop, allowing me to just take the tape. One less thing to pack, lighter crop bag and more time spent finishing pages.
These replacement cartridges are so easy to load I had to do it twice. I just couldn't believe it was that easy. Ingenious design, good quality product... well worth the investment.
I couldn't live without my Xyron X adhesive and scrapbook and cardmake too. Whenever I have small pieces that need glue or adhesive on the back, I turn to that little "X". Dropping in the cartridge couldn't be easier, so changing from permanent to repositionable adhesive is also a breeze. Dropping in tiny things such as letters, embellishments, flowers, anything less than an inch and a bit will go thru without any problem. When you go over an inch, you can go up to and inch and a half but you might need to turn your piece around to get it to angle in. Why use something more difficult when you can have so much fun?
I am a huge fan of the ZYRON adhesives. If you have any kind of alpha dies, small project or big project you need to have a ZYRON or maybe 2 or maybe more. So easy to use, no mess, easy to replace the cartridges and perfect size for small things. So much easier than fussing with messy wet adhesives. I like making mini scrapbooks. Check out my gallery for all my scrapbook projects. I used my ZYRON for all of them.
I have arthritis and quite often, it's hard to use adhesive runners, but using the Xyron "X" is wonderful for those little tiny alphabets - you just put them in the shute and run them through, pick them off and place them. It's a wonderful simple invention - so easy to use, especially if you're hands and fingers are problematic with arthritis.
