Make a Change Monday - Something Old, Something New


Welcome to "Something Old, Something New" week! A few weeks ago we cleaned out the craft room at the Xyron offices - and rather than throwing away old projects we decided to challenge the newest members of the Xyron Design Team!

We included one of our "old" projects in each of their welcome boxes, and asked them to create a new project using the old project either as inspiration or actually refurbishing the original project in to something new. Every day this week we'll share before and after photos, and hope you'll use them as inspiration for some of your own projects! First up Tina McDonald and Van Nguyen!

Tina McDonald

Tina was given a metal tin, used to make a word game.  The original project used Laminate with adhesive and Laminate with Magnet from the Xyron Creative Station line.

She turned it into a beautiful keepsake box using the 9" Creative Station, 1.5" Create-a-sticker, Spellbinders and Maya Road embellishments.


Van Nguyen

Van was given an altered frame/mirror created with paper and embellishments run through the 9" Creative Station and the 1.5" create-a-sticker.

Using the 1.5" & 2.5" create-a-sticker, the Mega Runner, Momenta papers and Colorbök cardstock; Van turned this mirror back into a cute picture frame. This was the first time she has decorated a frame and we think the results are amazing!


Tell us what you think in the comments below!  Come back tomorrow for more!
