About Craft Foil
If you haven't jumped on the craft foil train, it's time to climb aboard. This craft material is now taking the world by storm because of innovative tools and machines that make it so easy to harness the power of foil crafting. Be sure that your foil is compatible with your foiling machine or tool. It is so easy and convenient to create amazing foil designs.
How to Choose Your Foil
Choosing your foil sheets for crafting depends on the type of process. If you use the Heatwave system, then you will want to select their 4" x 6" foil. If you use the MINC system, then get their rolls of reactive foil (keep in mind that there are 2 sizes of machines and 2 sizes of rolls). Be sure you get the right craft foil for your project and be sure to save here with CraftDirect.com.
Pro tip: You can mix and match supplies from iCraft DECO FOIL and MINC, but Heatwave is not compatible with either of those 2.
How to Use Foil Sheets for Crafting
There are many ways you can use the foil material and the more creative you are, the more fun you will have. Craft foil really does bring an amazing quality to paper projects. Here are the two main processes for adding foil:
- Foil fusion - also referred to as hot foil stamping, foil fusion is the process by which foil is fused with toner to create a lasting finish. That means you can create your own designs with a toner printer or buy designs from the professionals. You sandwich your toner design with foil material within transfer folders, and pass them through your laminator machine.
- Adhesive foil sheets - this type doesn't require a tool or machine to apply it to your project surface. We carry Cricut foil, and all you have to do is just cut the material into shapes and phrases using your preferred die cutter and then peel off the backing and apply the design to your project surface.
Here are some popular ways to use foil:
- Scrapbooking - The possibilities are endless when it comes to scrapbooking with foil. You can use are large variety of colored sheets to add style and design to all your scrapbook pages.
