Starting yesterday, I have a crafty 5th grader in the house…. which makes me think we need some sort of “Are You Crafty As A 5th Grader” series, am I right?! I wanted to show you how easy it is to use the Minc Foiler Machine, so I turned a project completely over to her – she’s never used the machine before. So if she can do it, you can too! She made this super cute card to give to a friend for her birthday:
First up, you pick what you want to foil. She picked a predesigned set from Heidi Swapp made to coordinate with the Minc. Anywhere where there is black ink, the foil will adhere. So here the heart and the dots in the envelope are black:
Next up, pick which color of foil you want to use (this is the hardest part! so many to choose from!) – she ended up loving silver.
Then cut off a piece big enough to cover the surface area of the project:
Cover the project with the foil and put it all into the carrier sleeve – that’s how you’ll feed it through the machine.
Then feed it into the machine (we have it set to 3) – it’ll pull it through on it’s own, heating the foil to adhere it to the ink.
Then when it comes out the other side, it’s done. Open up the carrier sheet and be amazed! I think she said “that’s cool!!”
You can see how the foil just lifts off, leaving behind foil on the ink spots.
The card is DONE – that’s it!
Then you just put the envelope together and you have a cute custom stationary set.
See, you can totally do this!
What would you foil?!?!
