Maya Road & Xyron Christmas In July

Well, I've made it to July 24th and have not shared a 
single "Christmas in July" project up until now!
That's almost unheard of...for me anyway :)
But today is the day.
XYRON and MAYA ROAD
have teamed up this week to bring you some inspiration
from both of the companies!
Be sure to visit the Xyron Blog to see all of the projects!

 My first project uses a recycled glass jar with a 4" opening at the top.


 I embellished the top of a 4" Jumbo Bottle Cap from Maya Road with some 
patterned paper by Doodlebug Design.  After cutting the circle, I placed the paper
through the Creative Station to add a nice, even coating of permanent adhesive.

The metal flower bottle top was colored with a red alcohol marker,
topped with paper and then attached with Xyron 3/16" Adhesive Dots.
A wooden knob was painted lime green and attached with Xyron Adhesive Dots.

I added some ribbon to the jar by running a length of ribbon through
the Xyron 1.5" Sticker Maker.  A matching bow was added to the tag on front.

Two of the Raspberry Berry Beads were adhered to the side of the tag
with Xyron 3/16" Adhesive Dots

And lastly I have a quick, quick card that I made up with some of 
the Paper Twist Ribbon from Maya Road and papers/stickers by 3 Birds Designs.

I slightly unwound the paper and then rolled it into a flower shape.  
A 1" circle was covered in adhesive with the 1.5" Xyron Sticker Maker and
then the rolled flower was attached to it.

That's all from me today!
