Good Morning Friends! I hope you all are doing well...I am trying to catch up. I came home to lots of packages and new releases from some of my favorite companies. It is a little Halloween, Fall and a whole lot of Christmas happening right now at my house. One of the boxes I received was a package of wonderful crafting supplies from Therm O Web. They were so generous and I can't wait to share some things with you all throughout the next few months.
I made a card and a treat box to share with you today...
I started my project by using the Therm O Web: Brutus Monroe Toner Sheets- Carved along with Foil Transfer Sheets in Orange Sketch. The toner sheets come in both Clear and White and you get two sheets of each in a package. So you could potentially make 16 full size card fronts with each package, they are a great value in my opinion.
I started by trimming the panels down to the size I needed. I used the clear sheet for my card front (4 X 5.25) and the white sheet for my pillow box (6 x 6). I also trimmed the Orange Sketch Transfer Sheet down to size. Next, I put the toner and transfer sheet in a piece of parchment paper and ran it through my laminator. It instantly transfers the orange onto the the Carved toner sheet...it is like magic!
For my card, I used the clear sheet and mounted it onto a piece of black cardstock. I then added a sentiment from the Taylored Expressions: Mini Strips Halloween Stamp and Die Set.
I love the shine that the clear sheet has. It looks really fun/cool in real life, though it was very hard to photograph. I either had really bad glare or a shadow. So please excuse the strange angles of my photograph.
For my pillow box, I used my 6 x 6 inch square (white toner sheet) and ran it through my die cutting machine with a pillow box die. Super easy to do!
Isn't the box so cute? I filled my box with Halloween candy and closed it up. Next, I tied some Therm O Web: Gina K Designs Gingham Fancy Ribbon around my box. I then attached a fun sentiment from the Halloween Mini Strips set with a mini clothespin.
I am by no means an "expert" in foiling but it is such a Fun technique I hope you give it a try. I bought an inexpensive laminator (Royal Sovereign) off of Amazon for around $25.00...it had good reviews and is very easy to use. I would love to hear your thoughts? Have you tried to foil, or use the flock sheets with a laminator?
Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you enjoyed my projects. Please feel free to leave a comment or a question and I will do my best to answer them.
Enjoy your day,
