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!

Our design team had been very busy creating all kinds of Christmas inspired projects using the various Rinea foils.
Here we start with some cute little decorated jars with the Rinea foil in embossed red cut into a flower on top of the lid made by Erin Reed. For more info see her blog here.
Here is a video tutorial on how she made these fun jars.
Next we have Sonja Bakonyi on her amazing Christmas card with all kinds of beautifully cut shapes from Rinea foil. Check out her blog for more info about this card.
Next we have Karen Sessions. Here is my first project featuring Rinea double sided metallic foil. I recycled some clear packaging and covered it using Rinea red/gold foil. I embellished the lid with a rosette of glitter washi tape and ribbon. These little boxes are perfect to hold holiday candies to be given to the endless list of people that touch your life like neighbors, secretaries, mail man, doctors, teachers etc.

Now that you have some amazing inspiration from our team to is time to make some projects of your own!!
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.

This year I’m making a few Christmas decorations as we won’t have a traditional Christmas tree displayed. Being on the Rinea Design team and having the challenge of using copper, red and green paper gave me an idea. I would make a Christmas Sleigh.
Recently I purchased a Cricut Explore Air. Looking through the designs I found a sleigh that I knew would be perfect for my project.
Having never worked with Rinea paper I wasn’t sure what to expect. I choose the least sticky of mats and made sure that my blade was new and set my cutting to cut delicate paper. The green paper was the first cut and the holy leaves cut beautifully.
I cut the rest of the sleigh out of cardstock. The part that I wanted to be copper I sprayed with Tattered Angels Glimmer mist and Brutus Monroe’s Liquid Elements - Copper Penny. The sleigh now had the copper color I wanted. I was able to have a couple of small pieces of the copper foil paper in the upper parts of the sleigh in the scroll work.
Used a paint brush dipped in glue around the areas I wanted red glitter and then sprinkled the glitter over the area. Once the glitter was dry the green Rinea foil holy leaves were adhered with white glue. I glued a small amount to a white piece of paper and when the glue dried I then punched out red circles and placed those on the green holy leaves.
Knowing that I wanted the sleigh to be 3D and be able to hold items I decided to construct insides. This was achieved by building little boxes out of pieces of cardboard. I kept making little boxes and stacking these on each other until I had the inside of the sleigh built. I then painted the boxes black and attached the back of the sleigh.
The final touch was stringing a few silver jingle bells on a piece of wire and die cutting a bow out of the scrap of copper foil.
This Christmas Sleigh will be a perfect decoration for my home this year. I hope you enjoyed seeing my creation. Please, follow the blog to see how I fill the sleigh and other Christmas decorations I will be making with Rinea foil.
Here is a video on how Linda made this cute little sleigh!
