Apply metallic foil
Gather your supplies
- Minc pre-printed paper, sticker or die-cut, or image printed in black with a laser printer
- Mini minc 6 foil applicator machine and carrier pouch
- Roll of minc reactive foil in desired colour
STEP 1 Place your paper or stickers right side up in the carrier pouch. Cut foil to size and lay coloured side up over paper.
STEP 2 Using the correct heat setting (regular paper and card is Setting 3, other products will list their heat setting), let the rollers grab the carrier pouch and run it through the machine.
STEP 3 When it comes out, open the pouch and peel off the foil sheet. Where the design was black will now be shiny with foil.
STEP 1 Cut white card to 21 x 15cm. Fold in half.
STEP 2 Cut a background paper to 9.5 x 14cm.
STEP 3 Apply a reactive foil to the card, a layered flower die cut and a greeting plaque.
STEP 4 Attach the elements, as pictured, with double-sided tape.
