As usual, I was afraid

of a new contraption.  I bought this Xyron 500 at one of the sidewalk sales held at Paper Vineyard for $3!   What a smoking deal - I just couldn't pass it up.  I just hoped that it worked.  I bought it about a year ago and as is typical of me, I wanted to use it, but was fearful.  So tonight I took it out and replaced the cartridge.   

 I had already purchased several of the refill cartridges - what a snap to replace.  Just pop one out and pop the new one in.
 Feed the paper in, original side up.
 Turn the handle, and it pulls the paper through.
 It comes out the other side.  You just peel it off the paper.
 You can see the "sheen" - that's the sticky part.  It is completely covered.
Ta da!  It makes it one big sticker.
So glad I finally tried it.

I love tools, but I can sympathize, I had my Silhouette for months before I broke out the instructions. Now I think easy, peasy, what was the matter with me?
