ST Nicholas Holiday Sleigh Home Decor with Xyron

Disclaimer Notice: I’ve received products/compensation as part of the  Xyron Design Team. This project however, is 100% my own project! Some of the links in this post are affiliate links. I explain more here.


Hello Crafty Friends!  Are you creating some fabulous Home Decor projects using Xyron Adhesive? Remember this week Xyron is all about HOME DECOR!!! The Xyron Team is having a  Xyron Hashtag Challenge and it is in full swing on Instagram! If you are unfamiliar with a Hashtag Challenge, its basically where a ‘’challenge’’ is announced each week, and you use the #hollyjollyxyron to share your projects that go with that challenge Then, once the challenge week is up, the Xyron Design Team will pick a winner of the challenge and that person will be featured on all of our Instagram pages AND will win a Xyron Creative Station! So join us on Xyron to do the #hollyjollycards Challenge this week. Load those Home Decor Projects up and follow along with the Xyron and the team!

I am sharing my Holiday Sleigh Home Decor project that I created using Xyron Creative Station and Graphic 45 St Nicholas Collection!



I began by first tracing the sleigh shapes on to my designer paper with a pencil. Fussy cut out trace image. (I use my Xyron Creative Station to apply my adhesive on my paper but any adhesive will work.) Apply adhesive to paper cuts and place on chipboard.


Mask off the pattern paper with post-it notes to protect paper. Apply Boss Gloss to sleigh runners and apply embossing powder. Heat set. Repeat for other prepared sleigh.


Continue using Boss Gloss and embossing powder to emboss sleigh runners chipboard outline pieces. Form sleigh and adhere prepared runners to the sides.


Cover Christmas Shapes with pattern paper; adhere to side of prepared sleigh.  Add bow, chipboard and charm to side.


Add metal door pull and bow to front of sleigh.


Add chipboard piece to back of sleigh and fill with your favorite candy.



I hope I have inspired you to grab some Christmas/Winter papers and your favorite Xyron Adhesive...REMEMBER...enter them in to the #hollyjollyxyron on Instagram! Winners will be selected from the United States and Canada for this challenge!  Hugs Pam

Santa is almost here!!! Are you naughty or nice, lol... Well, this little darlin' is super nice and very cute if I must say myself and Authentique Vintage Christmas Collection is the perfect collection to make some easy and super cute layouts with.


To begin your layout tear a piece of the Vintage Christmas #8 paper around the Santa and reins to look like a snow drift. Adhere a piece of  Vintage Christmas #4 and #5 behind and mimic the tearing of paper. (HINT: Always tear paper toward you to get the white border.) Adhere the bottom of prepare papers to base paper to form a pocket. (HINT: Only do your adhesive on the sides and bottom leaving the top open.) Repeat at the top of the layout paper with #4 and #5 of the Vintage Christmas papers.


Adhere pieces of Epherema papers and pieces of pattern paper behind the snow drift you created.


Add photo to inside of created pocket.


Fussy cut images form Vintage Christmas #6 and #12; add to layout with pop dots.


Add gemstones to top of snowflake along with your sweet babies names and info to the Epherema Card using the Vintage Christmas Detail Sheet and pen.


Add a few sticker from the Vintage Christmas Detail Sheet to finish your layout. But wait there is more....

Add border strips and stickers...

Today I am sharing with you an easy, vintage feeling card that I created by doing a bit of distressing and inking of my papers.


Begin your card by first cutting card stock and pattern paper to fit the front of your card base. Distress the edges of all the pieces with distress tool, ink edges with Colorbox Nutmeg Blend ink. Adhere all pieces to top of card base using Xyron Mega Tape Runner. 


Run a piece of ribbon through the Xyron 1.5" Sticker Maker; place on front of card.


Die cut "Peace" from card stock; run through Xyron 1.5" Sticker Maker and add to front of card.


Cut pattern paper and card stock to create a strip for the top of card front. Repeat the distressing and inking method on all pieces. Adhere together with Xyron Mega Tape Runner. 


Die cut doily and punch scallop circle out of card stock. Run both pieces through Xyron 3" Disposable Sticker Maker. 



Adhere the doily to the scallop circle. Add to front of card front.


Stamp image to white card stock. Distress and ink edges; mat of distress and ink mats. Adhere together the Xyron Mega Tape Runner. Add to front of card with pop dots. Add bow to card.


Stamp second image on white card stock; color with markers. Fussy cut image and add to front of card with pop dots. Add enamel dots to card.
