Vellum is a paper that is semi-transparent. It comes in a variety of colours and is frequently used by scrapbookers and crafters. It can be adhered to glass to make beautiful crafts such as decorative vases and faux stained glass windows. The proper technique is required so that the glue cannot be seen once the project is complete. Using a Xyron 150 machine is a quick and inexpensive way to make stickers out of vellum strips to adhere to glass.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Cut your vellum paper to the sizes and designs desired.

  2. 2

    Make stickers with your paper pieces using your Xyron 150 machine. These small sticker making machines can be purchased for about £6 at any craft or hobby store. They are plastic and shaped like an "X." Place one piece of vellum through the top hole of the Xyron machine. You will see a strip of white paper at the bottom left side. Slowly pull the strip until you see the vellum come through. You have just created a vellum sticker with a clear backing.

  3. 3

    Unwrap the sticker that you created. A layer of thin plastic will be over the vellum. Remove the plastic.

  4. 4

    Remove the vellum from the sticker backing. Arrange it on the glass to your liking. Repeat the steps to create the project of your choice. This method will provide flawless vellum and glass projects that show no signs on glue or residue on the finished product.

Tips and warnings

  • For large sheets of paper, some clear spray-on adhesives work well for applying vellum to glass.
  • Print memorable quotes onto vellum and apply to glass vases or votives for gifts.
