Supplies needed:

Designs or fonts of your choice
Cardstock
 
Laser Printer
  • The reason you have to use a laser printer is that once it runs through the laminator, the ink heats up and acts as an adhesive to the foil. Inkjet prints do not heat up, and the foil won’t stick to your project.
  • In case you don’t own a laser printer, you can print the design at any printing store.
Laminator
 
Foil sheets – Jessica recommends iCraft Deco Foil and Minc.
 
Laminator transfer folder. It helps to protect your project from wrinkles as it goes through the laminator.

Step by Step:

1. Turn on the machine. Do this in advance, so it will be warm when you’re ready to use it.
 
2.  Make your design and print it on your cardstock using a Laser Printer. Remember to pick colors that match your wedding theme!
 
3. Cut up a piece of foil that’s as big as your design.
 
4. Place the foil in the transfer folder. Leave the shiny side up. For over one color, cut different pieces with different colors and layer them.
 
5.  Run the folder through the laminator. Run it twice through to make sure it’s all good.
 
6. Remove the project out of the transfer folder and peel off the foil piece.  Your card is ready!
