Okay, it's the Frugal Scrapper again! I picked up some Xyron refills on clearance some time ago for like $1.50 each because I remembered hearing that you can use them without the dispenser. Well I never could figure it out on my own, so today I searched and found the following blog that explains how to use them. I understand there is a lot of waste when using the dispenser. It seems the dispenser would take up a lot off space anyway. Hope you enjoy!
