Last week I decorated Organza Bags with Gold Foil using the cherub shape that I cut out with my Silhouette Cameo Cutting Machine.
Here’s the follow up post I promised, and no cutting machine is required. No electronics needed at all!
Craft Foil* | Burnishing tool: back of teaspoon or other smooth metal object | Double sided Sticky Sheets | Organza or fabric Bag | Sheet of Baking Paper (optional) | Double Sided Tape | Exacto Knife | Scissors | Hole Punch | Craft Punches |
* I used Jonestone Gold Foil and Renaissance Copper Foil (not affiliated)
How I Did it.
- First, Have a quick read of last week’s post as I go into a bit more detail about the application of the tape and foil.
- A quick, simple method to decorate with the craft foil is to use double sided tape. Apply the tape to your Organza Bag and Burnish it on well. Remove the top protective cover of the tape and press the foil over the top – shiny side up. Burnish well again and peel back the foil.
- Or use The Double Sided Adhesive sheets like we did last week. This time I punched out little holes with my hole punch and applied them in the same way resulting in little golden spots over the bag.
I also used a shaped paper punch to cut out larger shapes from the double sided adhesive sheet. Apply as before. I wanted to upcycle & re use the box below but needed to cover up the old logo. A foil heart did trick.
Pretty basic and very easy for great results!
Just a reminder that these projects are not washable. If washed it would probably lift up the double sided adhesive from the fabric. The foils can be applied with a glue but I haven’t experimented with that. If you want a washable result have a look at the heat transfer vinyl products instead.
