Are you a part of the crafting world? I like to dabble, but also I've been a teacher with a classroom, I've also homeschooled for a time, and I've had multiple uses for a an office laminator at home.
So, on my blog I did a full review of laminators to replace the one I used years ago (a Brother laminator). I'll let you check that out, but meanwhile.. While doing this article, I learned that you can use a laminator for SO. MANY. THINGS!!
And here I thought I would share the love. I'll just list below, and let you get your creative juices flowing.
- Chore List
- Cleaning List
- List of Birthdays & Anniversaries
- Emergency Phone #'s
- List of House Rules
- Doorhangers (Do Not Disturb!)
- Games for Kids (You can use dry erase markers to reuse over and over)
- Foiling Craft Projects (Google this - it's super cool!)
- Project/ Game cards for long trips
- Bingo cards
- Prayer cards
- Homemade books
- Anything ORGANIZING
- Luggage Tags
- Name Tags
- Anything paper you need waterproofed
- Leaf or Flower pressing
And I could go on and on! Something surprising you might not know - An at-home laminator is SUPER cheap. You can easily get a good one for only $20 or $30. Of course you'll have to also purchase the laminating paper/ pouches, but it's not too much.
I think it's a great investment for your house, or for documents you don't want to lose or have damaged.
Printers - are another story. I just don't get along with printers. I always have trouble with them!
So, how about you? Do you have a laminator at home or to use in a small office? What fun things have you done with your laminator? I'd love to know! :)
