I have a whole blog post on this! Short answer. INSTANT INK! Check out the post HERE!
What kind of paper do you use?
I just buy the 250 ct cardstock paper from Sam’s club for about $9.
What kind of laminator do you have?
Lammy as the kids call it, is an older Scotch. One of the kids broke of the black paper holder in the back a while ago but she is still chugging a long. I also have a “Lammy 2.0” that is just the newer version for $15 ish because it was on sale and I had a gift card. Sometimes we do a lot of laminating so it is nice to have the two but totally not necessary.
What kind of laminating sheets do you use?
I use the Scotch 3 mil laminating sheets. I find this works well with the cardstock and is nice and firm. I have purchased a 200 ct box for $23ish on Amazon, but wait if the price is higher. Same thing for the 100 ct on amazon for $12ish.
What kind of sticker paper do you use?
I just got this one off of amazon. (Not affiliate link) STICKER PAPER. 500 ct for $30.
What do you use to cut your printables out?
A pair of scissors, which ever ones I can find. I have a Guillotine Paper Cutter ($19 is what I bought mine for at Target.) This style has been sooo nice to have. For years I justused a paper cutter like this one. I still have it but I mostly use my Guillotine cutter. This has helped for big cutting jobs like the Math Flash Cards that are laminated. I also have a cutting machine.
What kind of cutting machine do you have?
I have the original Silhouette SD, we’re talking first gen and she is still chugging a long!
any other cool tools you love?
I love my corner rounder. Its about 12 years old and still going strong! I got it at Hobbly Lobby back when I was a teenager! Don’t forget to use a coupon! Also my scoring board! It has been such a good tool for folding paper and bookets and such! I have a comb binder that I found at a thrift store for $4 but my dad is letting me use his bigger one that can do more pages at once. I also have this LONG stapler which has been nice for booklets! And a trusty hot glue gun!
any other supplies you swoon over?
Yes! Velcro dots! Off brand, but if i were to write hook and loop everyone would be lost. $12 for 1000 dots. They also carry some at the Dollar Tree, but I haven’t tried those.
These photo organizers from Micheal’s for $12. Please don’t buy them at the $41. They go on sale every few weeks.
Also these 12 x 12 Cases for units from Micheal’s for $6.
