DIY Self Laminating Labels

I don’t know about you, but there is always something that I want to make stronger by laminating it. Well, self adhesive lamination sheet are the winner.  I love that you can buy the Self-Adhesive Laminating Sheets and you do not need a machine to seal them.  Laminating paper is really an easy process.  There are so many different types of laminates available; they range in thickness and size.

Below is a step by step to show you just how easy it is to laminate.

The first thing I did was find a laminate that had a high millimeter count so it would be strong enough to withstand the project I was using it for.

I will be using these labels for a basket that I will be placing under the benches in the dug out of my daughter’s softball team, so I added black gems to them because we are the Black Diamonds.

Self-Adhesive Laminating Sheets can help to preserve the paper or just protect it, if it is something you use often.
