Quick Tip Tuesday - DIY Pop Dots

Hello everyone and welcome to Tuesday!!!

I am excited about today's post because it is about one of my favorite non cricut tools that I love to use. And, that is pop dots. I love giving depth to my creations and I use these little guys in so many projects!

I found this great YouTube video provided by CraftaholicCentral showing exactly how you can create your own pop dots and so cheaply!

Now I have not been able to try this on my own as I do not own that big of a xyron sticker maker, but it is absolutely on my list. I can't wait to try it!

Thank you for joining me on another Quick Tip Tuesday, I will see you again next week!

Please be sure to come back tomorrow to check out our Wednesday Winners.

  3. You can do the same thing with your sticker maker xyron --- just cut the foam fun into narrow strips. There are a lot of fun colors at the craft store!

  4. I do this all the time...Its really a GREAT idea!! I use my small Xyron 1.5" Sticker Maker and cut my foam a bit shy of 1.5" so it fits into the machine. Then I cut them into narrow strips and store away so they are ready for when I need them. I use all sorts of color foam, I think it blends in better with my projects and gives just the right amount of dimension.


  5. What a great idea! So CLEVER! I will try it today! Thanks for sharing.....I always look forward to your Tuesday Tips. You are the GREATEST!

  11. Great idea! I just picked up a sticker maker today and I have tons of foam in the house, next time I run out of pop dots I will not be buying more!
