  1. Print an image (such as our spring chicken onto printer paper. Load a Xyron machine with an adhesive backing cartridge.

  2. Feed your images through the Xyron machine, turn the handle, and cut. Peel the front film off and your image becomes a sticker. Stick your image onto a piece of two-ply matte board and trim.

  3. Change your Xyron cartridge to a magnetic laminate backing cartridge. Then, feed the matte board through again. Cut out images using a utility knife.

  4. Use scallop copper tape to decorate edges. Use a bone folder to smooth.
