    Interested in having one of your own? Reply to this thread and Share your crafty idea for what you would do with it if you had one! One randomly selected entry will receive a brand new laminator and pouches.

    Well, I think it would be nice to make recipe book (with the washable pages you mention) as a gift for my nieces. Thanks; Virginia

    I've never used a laminator before but I'd like to laminate some older documents to preserve them. We have birth certificates, social security cards and things like that that are looking kind of ragged.

    I'd make waterproof id tags for all my kids school things like their backpacks. Last year my daughters backpack was stolen!

    One of these would be a tremendous asset to our Homeschool. I could make reusable flash cards and laminate my daughters brilliant artwork to keep it safe. I also watch younger kids to bring in some income and it would be very useful for laminating things for working with them.

    Thank you for the challenge! I saw a neat craft idea last spring at a craft show where they shaved crayons onto the sheets and then laminated them. It made really pretty "stained-glass" suncatchers for the windows. I have a rather large sunroom and the birds sometimes hit the windows, so I would use the laminator to make the suncatchers and hang them all over. Thank you for the challenge.

    I would laminate small pieces of wall paper border for framing, laminate important documents, laminate crayon-colored pictures from my young nieces and nephews for hanging, laminate favorite sayings or bible verses to frame.

    I Have been wanting one of these for years! We homeschool and could get A LOT of great use out of it! I would use it for traces letters, art projects, the kids make pretty pics on tracing paper and we could laminate it and make a kind of stained glass we could even do different ones for the front door for the different holidays, make some states placemats or a coloring placemat for my younger. I could make my sons and I's chore charts, and laundry chart. I could put my Kitchen to do list on there ex: make bread on tueday and thursday make chicken stock sunday night, soak beans saturday night, soak oatmeal every morning, etc etc.

    I have twin grandchildren (boy and girl) , 7 yrs old and a 3 yr old granddaughter. I would use a laminate to preserve their pictures and the cards that they make "mama and papa) . They are so precious.

    I would laminate important personal documents, and photos. I also would use it to laminate old recipes that I inherited, so that I can preserve them for years to come!!! And, of course, the kids craft projects, etc!

    What would I do? I think my real words would be 'wouldn't do'. To start I would make a family story book for each of my grand babies. Laminate all the pages and give them a life time of memories.

    Next: My husband and I are putting together a cookbook of all our favorite recipes (and the kids) from the years we were in the restaurant business. Each page would be laminated to allow for less mess.

    I would then laminate all my favorite photo's and stick them up on the mirrors in my living room. Easy care and I could wipe them as I wipe the mirrors. It will make a great photo wall.

    Thats to start! Have a great day.

    I do a lot of scrapbooking and not all items are archival. Laminating them, I could use more things in my scrapbooks--leaves, flower petals, etc.
