In this video I share how easy it is to use a laminator, something you probably already knew! However, until I started pulling out those laminating sheets and scouring the house for various documents, I didn’t realize how many uses there were for that machine!

Here’s the video, which also reviews the Fellowes laminator, followed by my list of 28 things to laminate!
