Today I'm sharing one of my All Time Favorite techniques using Xyron Adhesive. I absolutely love Xyron. As a Mixed Media Artist, Stamper and Scrapbooker that has been professionally crafting for 15 years, reliable and effective adhesive is must have. Xyron has enabled me to effortlessly bind and adhere mini albums, altered items, canvases, mixed media pieces and jewelry for as long as I can remember. My favorite projects to use Xyron adhesive on are Altered Bottles. The application of the adhesive is extremely easy and enables me to finish my projects very quickly.
Altered Bottles are wonderful gift ideas and perfect for home décor. Take a peek at one of my tutorials below.
