Alpna here and today I'm going to share an interesting idea to make your banners with Rinea Foils. These foils are so versatile that you can die cut in cutting machines like Big Shot, Cricut, etc. You can easily punch these foils and every time you get a crisp and sharp punch. The possibilities are endless.
I decided to cut the letters in Cricut Exlore so I opened my software and write "BUY HANDMADE" and kept the font Arial Black as I wanted my letters bold. Then I took silver embossed Rinea foil and stuck to a very less sticky mat. I adjusted my cutting pressure on paper which gave me the perfect cut.
For the banner backing I took red card stock and spellbinders dies and ran through my Big Shot. Now my backing and letters are ready. I stuck the letters on square backing and stuck blue ribbon too.
Now to give the banner that little bit of extra sparkle I took blue embossed Rinea foil and snowflake punch. I punched several snowflakes and glued two flakes one on another to give a flower look and finally glued the middle stone to add the beauty.
I glued the little flowers to the banner and now it is ready to hang in my studio.
Here is the complete list of supplies:
Silver Embossed Rinea Foil
Blue Embossed Rinea Foil
Cricut Explore Air Machine
Big Shot Machine
Glue, Scissors, Crafting Mat
Karen has created a beautiful winter wonderland of snowflakes using Rinea foils. The shimmer and shine almost better than the real thing!
When you need a project for a cold wet winter day, this is a great family activity you can get the kids involved with. You don't need many supplies to make these gorgeous hanging snowflake decorations. Rinea paper foils fold and crease wonderfully and easily hold their shape. Try alternating colors of foil for a fun twist. Then display the finished snowflakes hanging in the window for an elegant Winter accent.
Crafters Glossy Pack: Rinea Paper-Foil 10-Pack 15 cm x 25 cm (Silver)
Crafters Embossed Pack: Rinea Paper-Foil 10-Pack 23 cm x 33 cm (Blue & Lt. Blue)
Other Supplies: scissors, ruler, double sided tape, needle, thread
1. Trim six paper foil squares 4x4". Six squares are needed to complete each snowflake.
(TIP: To form a square, fold a rectangle into a triangle by taking a corner and folding at a diagonal. Trim the overhanging paper outside the triangle. Have fun experimenting with different color paper foils in different sizes to create your hanging dimensional snowflakes.)
Paper foil square dimensions: Large 4x4" - finished size 10"
Medium 3x3" - finished size 7.25"
Small 2x2" - finished size 4.5"
2. Fold the square in half to form a triangle. Next, fold it in half again to form a triangle. With the creased side closest to you, cut 3 straight slits parallel to the longest side. Start cutting at the creased edge and stop cutting 1/4" from the edge.
3. Completely unfold the triangle to reveal the sliced square rows. Begin at the innermost point of the square and roll the two inner points inward. Apply double sided tape, align the overlapping points, and adhere them.
4. Flip the snowflake segment over and take the next larger row of slits, overlap their points, and adhere them together. Continue this process by flipping over the segment and forming rolls until all the rows of slits are rolled inwards and glued together making sure to alternate sides with every new row. Repeat rolling and adhering the slits for all six squares of foil paper.
5. Align the 6 individual segments facing the same direction. Begin to attach the points together with double sided tape. (TIP: Staple the snowflakes together when you are making large square segments that are over 8")
6. Next, connect each snowflake segment on the outermost roll with the adjacent segment to add stability.
7. To display the snowflakes, use a needle to pierce the foil paper at one point and attach a loop of thread.
(TIP: The larger the square of paper foil that is cut, the easier it is to assemble the snowflakes. To avoid frustration & disappointment don't begin with a small 2" square.)

Sonja is on the blog today with a cute little fairy lantern, how cute!! Perfect for a little girls room, birthday party decor, or just to have out during the winter time for a bit of fun!
Finally I caught the Snow Fairy and there hasn't been any more snow since I caught her!
Step One: Choose your foil:
For this project I used light blue, silver, and dark blue
Step Two: Choose a file
After choosing a file, I find it helpful to cut the file in a heavier paper and attaching the foil to it for more durability on 3D files.
After cutting the base of the lantern out in white cardstock, I cut the base again in the silver foil and attached to the white cardstock.
Step Three: Snowflakes
Now I had some difficulty in this area. Snowflakes are a delicate cut with intricate little pieces. The foil is delicate as well.
I found it helpful to have a utility knife to help me cut some parts out. The blade setting on my machine was at the lowest with the lowest pressure.
Step Four: Find a Snow Fairy
After cutting the fairy in black, I adhered it to the inside of the lantern to create a shadow effect.
Step Five: Add a light
The bottom of this lantern is open, but it fit my tea light perfectly so it would fall out when hung up.
The best way to catch a snow fairy is with sugar. You know what they say, sugar and spice....give a fairy sugar and it takes the spice out of her leaving us too much snow!

Linda is on the blog today bring some winter snowflakes to those that do not have snow. We just love the colors of silver and blue together and the Rinea foil just make them sparkle even more!
We are in full swing of winter here in Oklahoma. For many in the country it means lots of snow. In Oklahoma we get cold temperatures and occasional freezing rain and if we are lucky snow. Today I decided that I was Bringing Snowflakes Inside.
Since we don’t get much snow I decided that my project would be a little mini canvas filled with Rinea foil snowflakes.
Using embossed blue, light blue and silver Rinea foil, die cut with Spellbinders snowflakes. It is best to die cut one layer of paper at a time. If you try to die cut multiple layers at once the papers will stick together and you will spend a lot of time trying to separate them, trust me I know. There was an unknown brand snowflake punch in my stash used as well.
The mini canvas is 3 by 3 inches in size and came painted black. Unsure how much of the canvas background would show I decided to stamp a few Brutus Monroe Snowflakes from Oh Deer and Holiday Sentiments in Alabaster Pigment Ink. Then went around the edges of the canvas with the same ink pad.
Sprayed True Turquoise and Sapphire Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist over the canvas and used heat tool to dry. The canvas was still sticky from the Pigment ink so I used fine glitter all over the sticky spots.
The die cut and punched snowflakes were adhered to the canvas using Adhesive Tech glue. Self adhesive rhinestones were placed in the centers of the snowflakes. But when looking at the mini canvas I decided it needed more Glitter! Using a small flat paint brush I applied glue in a few areas and then sprinkled glitter.
Video of the whole process.
This mini canvas was then placed on a small easel to be admired. Bringing Snowflakes Inside this winter is much more fun when you don’t have to go outside and brave the cold. Instead you can enjoy the comforts of your home and play with Rinea foil and make snowflakes. That is so much more fun!

Hi everyone, Steph Ackerman here today with a snowman canvas using Rinea Foils in a variety of ways.
Rinea Foils - Glossy Silver Foil; Embossed-Blue, Light Blue
Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist
Joy Clair Stamps
EK Success Punches
Whisker Graphics Twine
I began by spritzing a canvas panel with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists. Once dry, I stamped an assortment of snowflakes from Joy Clair Stamps about the panel.
Next, I used my Cricut Expression to die cut a snowman from Glossy Silver Foil. I used a pressure setting of medium and a cutting speed of high. Other than the tiny edges of the scarf, the foil cut beautifully. Plus, I used an older mat that was not too sticky. The foils easily came off the mat. I find that a mat that is too sticky does not allow the foils to be easily released.
I die cut a snowman from black cardstock to use as the base, then adhered the silver foil pieces on top. To finish I also die cut a blue hat and scarf.
Using a border punch, I punched 2 layers of "snow drips" from 2 colors of Embossed Blue and Embossed Light Blue Foils. After adhering the Blue Foil to the canvas, I used foam adhesives to adhere the Light Blue Foil on top. The foil cut easily with the intricate punch!
Next, I used a smaller punch and die cut snowflakes from the Glossy Silver Foil. Again, the foil cut easily and without a problem. Finally, I die cut winter using Sizzix dies with the Blue Foil. Again, I had absolutely no issues die cutting. I even die cut additional dots from the "i" to use as the snowman's buttons.
To finish I punched two holes in the top and added twine for the hanger.
I used an assortment of tools with these foils and love how they all worked with the foils.
Thanks for stopping by today.
Happy New Year! Nadine here today sharing how I created some really easy page corner bookmarks. When it gets cold outside I love to curl up on my couch with a blanket and a good book. I don't like to dog ear my pages to save my place so I made these corner bookmarks. I love how they came out using the Light Blue Embossed Paper-Foil.
Wondering how I created these bookmarks?
