Mini books or junk journals are a fun way to play with your crafty supplies and try out new things. Here Erin Reed does this with a theme of Halloween using a variety of crafty supplies including Rinea foils!!
Here is a video tutorial on how she made this fun book. She split up her book video into 2 parts - part is all about how she constructed the book and part 2 is all about adding in all the pretty elements.
Here is part 2 using the plain bronze Rinea foils as back ground papers to her book pages.
Here is the close up pictures of the pages using the Rinea foils.
The beauty of these foil papers is that they act like regular paper, just really metallic. So using them in your papers crafts is really easy!!

Hi all Erin here. I have been wanting to play with the idea of adding the Rinea foil to jewelry pieces, and when I received this clear coat resin it seemed like an amazing fit!! You can wear these as jewelry pendants, large embellishments for mixed media, really there is no end to how to use thee fun little pendants.
I punched the plain pink and gold foils and also the embossed silver foil with various punches in flower and star shapes to embed into the metal pendant shapes and then cover them with the clear coat resin. For the larger pendant I shaped the foil at the tips to give it a 3D effect and due the foil's amazing structure it holds it shape!!
Here is a video tutorial on how to make these amazing pendants with Rina Foil and resin.
The foils help catch the light like any other metal. This is a fun a easy way to make an amazing statement piece for any jewelry buff. Here are some more up close pictures of these fun pendants.

The Rinea foil works like no other, it can be bent and folded to hold its shape as seen in the below project. Here are some examples how the foil can be use for home décor or gift jars made by Julie McGuffee.
In this first jar the silver plain foil paper is run through a metal die to give it amazing texture and then backed with the red embossed foil behind to make it pop. At the top is a fun start using a rosette using a folding technique, perfect for the top of a jar. Here are a couple other rosettes made in the same fashion.
A simple and easy way to dress up a jar is to punch out the foils and glue them to to the sides of the jar, pick any shape you want from hearts, stars, snowflakes, circles, and so many more!!
Last we have a sweet little votive with a flared middle, which will stay in place due to the nature of the foil!! Cut slits into a rectangle foil and glue to the top and bottom of the votive glass and it create this amazing look of a lantern, line it with a few gems at the top and you have a one of a kind tea light candle holder.
Rinea® paper-foil is an amazing product that acts like a paper, but has the flexibility and durability of a foil without cutting, wrinkling, and flaking, plus it keeps it shape! Here Julie McGuffee creates 2 wonderful birthday cards using the foils.
Julia cut the colored foils into little pennant shapes and added a decorative edge to the bottom, folding over the top to add to the banner. She also punched out little flowers from the silver foil to place in the middle. So cute!
The colored foils come in red, green, blue, pink, and purple all with a gold back. The metallic line comes in gold, silver both with a gold back plus pure copper, matte gold, and silver.
This sweet birthday card is perfect for anyone birthday. Julie punched out the embossed foils in various colors with a circle punch. The foil paper is perfectly safe with your punches and it is a paper base!! She even die cut out the title "Happy Birthday" with the gold foil.
The embossed foil line has the colors in red, green, blue, hot pink, purple, gold, pastel pink, pastel blue, copper, and silver. Perfect for that little bit of extra sparkle on your projects!!
