SCS Product Review :: Xyron Creatopia

Hey there...again! I know a second post today, but I wanted you all to jump over to Splitcoaststampers (SCS) to read all of the reviews on Xyron's new Creatopia. The Creatopia is the jack of many trades, so you need to go see what it can do, from embossing, cutting, and even applying adhesive to fabrics, there is something for every crafter for this product. So, go on over to SCS and read all of our reviews here and view all our samples here.

There is a tutorial available for the card I am sharing with you here.

  1. Trim aqua mist cardstock into a 5.5" square card.
  2. Trim patterned paper to fit card front, then use decorative scissors to create the fun edge.
  3. Ink patterned paper edges, then stitch onto card front.
  4. Cut a piece of fabric large enough to cover chipboard and run it through the Creatopia.
  5. Remove backing from fabric and adhere to chipboard.
  6. Ink chipboard legs and beak, then adhere to card front.
  7. Sand edges of fabric covered chipboard and ink, then adhere to card front.
  8. On a strip of paper, write sentiment and adhere to card front.
  9. Add buttons and rhinestone 'eye.'
