  • Xyron Creative Station Lite – item shown in video is our older 5″ Creative Station

  • Cut your paper to fit the inside of your frame (our picture frame was 8 inches by 10 inches).
  • Using your Xyron Mega Runner, apply some adhesive to the insert that came with your picture frame and adhere your paper (from step 2) on top of the insert.
  • Run all your die cut embellishments through your Xyron Creative Station.
  • Peel off the Xyron backing from your die -cut embellishments, and add them to your paper.
  • Once you are happy with the look of your paper, simply add it to your picture frame!
