The price has gone up, I knew this deal wouldn’t last forever! The Scotch Thermal Laminator for only $19.99 with free shipping at Amazon (that’s 75% off the original price of $80.49) is my favorite gift this year because you can create educational and crafty do-it-yourself projects with it. I was happy to see affordable refills at 20 cents per pouch. My friend has this laminator and alerted me to this hot deal. She’s very happy with her Scotch Laminator and it has received great reviews by others. You can laminate items that are up to 9 inches wide – there are lots of uses including magnets, bookmarks, id cards, flash cards, placemats, books, preserve artwork, protect frequently used documents.

I hope you signed-up for Amazon Mom (you can still sign-up) because you get free Prime Membership which means free 2-day shipping (they extended the free shipping offer so everyone gets free shipping in December too). You can extend your free Prime Membership just by making a qualifying $25+ purchase in the “Amazon Baby Store“.  I was surprised to find out that many toys (like the Leapster) qualify as a purchase from the “Amazon Baby Store”.

You’ll also need to order refills and I recommend the Scotch Thermal Laminating Pouches (9 inches wide) for $9.99 (save 29%) for a 50 count.  That makes the pouches cost about 20 cents each. It makes sense to order the widest (and cheapest) refill the machine can use because if you are laminating something small you just line them up horizontally (with a small gap between objects).  Please share what type of projects you’ll be using this laminator for!
