Erin is on the blog today with some amazing DIY flowers. Made completely of the Rinea foil and some Beacon glue, these flowers are truly a spring wonder!
I love to make paper flowers, and when I can make them 3 dimensional it is even better!! I love the beauty of the Rinea foils about how they shimmer, sparkle, and retain the shape you put them in as you roll it. So I thought what would be a fun flower for spring, a hyacinth!!
The Rinea foil is perfect for this project as the paper holds it shape wonderfully when you roll it. It also has a this amazing sparkly shimmer because it is foil!! Here is a video on how to make these fun flowers!
The glossy Rinea paper have a color on one side and gold on the back, so it really makes for a beautiful looking flower!
Now go out and make some pretty flowers!!!

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!
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?

Here is a quick and easy project that you can get the children to help make for the holiday season. Paper chains are simple to make and Rinea Foil is perfect to use because it is double sided. Cut a single loop from the chain each day of December as your family counts down the days until Christmas Day.
Crafters Glossy Pack: Rinea Paper-Foil 10-Pack 15 cm x 25 cm (Red/Gold) & (Green/Gold)
Crafters Embossed Pack: Rinea Paper-Foil 10-Pack 15 cm x 25 cm (Red & Green)
Other Supplies: double sided tape, lace doilie, wooden star, hot glue gun
1. Apply a strip of double sided tape along one edge of paper foil.
2. Cut strips of paper foil into 1" lengths. Cut 6 strips of 4 different paper foils.
3. Assemble a chain of 24 paper foil strips.
4. Add a paper loop for the final 25th day.
5. Cut 2 strips of green star embossed foil 1.5"x 9.5"
6. Accordion fold both green strips. Use a hot glue gun to attach the 2 strips together. Form a circle by gluing the ends together. Next, hold the center firmly together and glue the rosette onto a 1"x1" bit of paper. Carefully, hold the rosette in place until the glue cools and dries.
7. Attach the rosette to a white paper doilie and embellish the center of the rosette with a wooden star. Finally, attach a loop of ribbon to hang the rosette chain.
8. Adhere the 25th loop with the flat edge to the back of the rosette.

Hi all Linda here. This year is all about keeping things small and simple. My husband and I have made big changes in our lives. We don’t need gifts to make us happy. Being together and with our family makes us happy.
For this Christmas I decided that I would make small Christmas decorations. My mother gave me a small milk glass sleigh that was her mother's. I decided that it should be filled with tiny gifts. These gifts would remind me of the many blessings that I have in my life.
When looking around my home I realized that I didn’t have any tiny boxes to decorate. Crazy I know, that among all the craft supplies I didn’t have tiny boxes. Well I decided that I would make my own.
Cutting pieces of cardboard down to one and half inch squares I glued three pieces together and then covered with Rinea Foil. Some of the “boxes” were covered with Rinea Foil paper that I embossed with a snowflake embossing folder. Other boxes were covered with paper from Canvas Corp Brands then sprayed with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists.
Once all of the boxes were covered with desired paper it was time to add embellishments. A paper punch from Punch Bunch in the shape of a Holy Leaf was used. Punching several of the leaves out of the green Rinea embossed foil I set those aside.
Various colors of ribbon were used to wrap the gifts. Tied tiny bows and glued with hot glue to hold them in place. Once the ribbon bow was in place a tiny amount of glue was placed on the holy leaf and then small red rhinestones were put in place.
There is a video showing the whole process.
This little milk glass sleigh will remind me of all the tiny blessings in my life. Hopefully this project will inspire you. Now you know how to make tiny Christmas packages for your own tiny blessing reminder.

Hello all, Sonja here! Today I bring you a tutorial and an awesome little gift box using Rinea Foil. When I think Christmas, I think beautiful trees, lights, and gifts for others. I decided to combine that together with a little surprise inside of the gift box!
For this project, I used the copper, light green, dark green, and red out of the embossed assorted colors pack. To start with, use a very, very light tack mat. I put a piece of paper over the foil and smoothed it down onto the mat with my Silhouette scraper tool. I covered it with the sheet of paper just to not rip or scratch the foil. After it is smoothed down, you can see the wrinkles are out and this will help when cutting so that it doesn't hook on any previous indentations from your mat. After picking a design, I adjusted my cut settings and blade to copy paper and blade at 2. (Sugar tip: Each machine will differ pending the newness of your blade. I advise making a few test cuts!)
After choosing my files (Silhouette store), I decided that I wanted the box to be more of an explosion box so I needed to cut the sides off. To do this, use your knife tool on straight. I usually unclick auto apply so that I can line up all the lines exact and then slice them off.Once applied, I now have no arms to attach the box together which is what I wanted!
Next, I just cut out each piece. I find that with the foil, because it is a delicate material to work with, doubling up on the layers helps with stability. I also did this for the copper star on top of the tree.
For the tree, I adhered layers together for stability and the 3D effect. Arrange the layers together and glue the core together. I found that Aleene's tacky glue worked well with the foil, as well as ATG tape.
I didn't want to have an empty box. I needed a wow factor when it was opened. So I decided to go with a sleigh. In order to get the sleight to fit into the box, I had to scale it down, WAY down!
For the base of the box, I wanted the copper to line the inside of the box. I did not want it to be straight edged so I used the knife tool again to add a scalloped edge.
Then came the fun part, decorating! I happened to buy some fake snow-tex from Joann's for about $3 I believe. Just use a paint brush to dab where you want it to give your projects an extra added boost of life!
The sleigh is 3D with the same SC emblem on each side. The face snow just gives a little realness to what I imagine Santa's sleigh looks like at the end of his trip!

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.

Hello! Nadine here with my first project for Rinea. I have been thinking about making a paper Christmas tree for awhile now but just haven’t found the perfect paper for it till now. The double-sided Glossy Plain Rinea paper-foil in Green/Gold was exactly what I was looking for to make my tree.
To create the tree I used the cardboard tube from some wrapping paper and rolled the foil papers into cones. Watch my video below to see how I did it.
For the tree top, I used a custom handcrafted star that was sent to me along with my design team supplies.
Here is a close up of the green/gold foil paper. Love this color combo!
