Laminator Love Giveaway and Some Football!!

Oh my goodness....I am in love!! I have been wanting my own laminator for quite a while, but with a new baby coming soon, it's gotten put on the back burner. So, imagine how excited I was when My Binding sent me their awesome Papermonster laminator to review! Since it came in the mail yesterday, I have been using it like crazy! The laminator is super easy to use...plug it in, slide a switch and wait for the light to turn blue. I waited less than 10 minutes for it to warm up!
Very compact and does not take up a lot of space...the cord even wraps up into the bottom!

Put whatever you're laminating into a sleeve or "pouch"

Slide your pouch through the laminator (I forgot to use my protective sleeve, but I won't next time...it didn't mess anything up though!). On a side note, I hope to have this 3 Little Pigs pack up soon!

My stack of laminating!
The machine is wonderful and the laminating is thick and not "flimsy" like some of the laminating you can get sometimes. I am super happy! The good news is, you have a chance to win your own laminator too! My Binding (click to check them out) is offering a giveaway and all you have to do to enter is use the Rafflecopter below. Good luck!

  35. I'm a kindergarten teacher, and we do lots of precious art. As a parent, I would appreciate if my child's work was laminated so it would last a long time! Since our laminating film runs out almost as fast as the custodian can put it on, it seems our school is always out. I would laminate those art projects, and little things I create to put up in the classroom. Thanks for the opportunity!

  74. With my recent grade level change to Kindergarten, I have quickly realized that there is a lot of preparation for center work!

    ReplyDelete
