Erin here today with a fun 3D heart Valentines banner anyone make, even kids!! The Rinea foils make these EASY hearts to pretty and illustrious that as simple as they are to make they look amazing!!
These hearts are so easy, you just need to layer different sizes together and then glue them onto a little tag shape in canvas (from Canvas Corp). Here is a video tutorial on how to make these fun 3D hearts, plus how to make the fun die cut ones on the end.
The hearts can be as flat or 3D as you want them you be, but I like them a little more dimensional!
- I stick with pinks, reds, and neutrals for this banner, simple canvas tags with golds really make the pink and gold Rinea foil just shine!
This banner is wonderfully easy to make for a school party, adult party, home decor, or just for fun! It can also be made by kids, since the hearts are just in layers!! Happy Valentine's Day!!

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
Monica is up on the blog today with a beautiful banner to help decorate her craft space. She uses the foil to help make everything just sparkle and shine!!
Thank you ladies for joining me for another Rinea Design Team Project.
If there is one thing I love to do its to decorate my craft space with beautiful inspiring work to help spark my creativity.
So that's exactly what I did! For my project I created a winter theme banner.
I have a full tutorial video on how I made and decorated my banner.
I used the amazing Rinea embossed foil paper in the color light blue, blue, copper and gold in both the embossed and plain foils. I just love creating projects with this foil paper because it gives every project that pop of color that you just can't miss, all while giving the banner an elegant look.
As always I had so much fun creating with these beautiful paper and I hope to see you on my next project!
Steph Ackerman makes her debut on the Rinea blog with an amazing Christmas banner perfect for any mantle, side table, front door, or even your stairs!! The pops of Rinea foil just make it all come to life!!
Hi everyone, Steph Ackerman here today with my first post as a member of the Rinea Design Team.
I have been experimenting with these foils and unlike some foils I have used, these foils are quite sturdy and retain their shape no matter what you do with them - fold them, bend them, emboss them and more. Imported from Germany, the foils are made of paper surrounded by 2 layers of colored aluminum foil so there is a nice weight to them.
As we are on our way towards Christmas, I created a banner with ornaments and poinsettias created from assorted color of Rinea Foils.
Rinea Foils - Glossy Plain-Red/Green; Embossed-Red, Green, Silver, Copper
Whisker Graphics Twine
Cardstock and pattern paper was cut to create the banner pieces then adhered together with brads. Using Spellbinders dies, I die cut the large ornaments from black cardstock, then used the next sized die to cut ornaments from Red, Silver and Copper Foils. Coordinating twine was tied around the foil ornaments and the foil layer was adhered to the cardstock layer with foam adhesives for dimension.
Using my Cricut, I die cut JOY from Green Embossed Foil. As you can see, the first "J" I cut tore while die cutting. I usually have my speed and pressure settings at maximum, but found it to be too fast to cut the foil. I die cut the "O" at medium speed and pressure and, while it did cut better, I found it too slow and it dragged the foil a bit. I then cut the "Y" at high speed and pressure which cut the best as did the last "J". The other 2 "J"s did not cut well as I did not clean my mat completely before cutting. (Lesson learned!)
Using Red and Green Embossed Foils, I die cut and embossed the poinsettias using Spellbinders dies. The foil cut really well and embossed beautifully. A dollop of glitter glue was added to the center of the poinsettias.
The ornaments were added to the banner using clothes pins which were clipped to the tops of the banner. Smaller poinsettias were glued to the clothes pins and a dollop of glitter glue was added to the center of each.
To finish, I tied some jute to the ends so I could hang the banner.
