I'm so excited to join in on another Rinea Foil blog hop as I really love their line and can't wait to show you what I made!
If you have never heard of Rinea Foil, you've been missing out!
Rinea® paper-foil is a specialty craft paper imported from Germany.
It is made up of a thin sheet of paper sandwiched between two layers of thin aluminum foil - the paper gives it sturdiness and stiffness while the foil gives it the shininess and the malleability to maintain the shape however you bend or fold it.
It is more than just origami paper due to the specific thickness and the quality of the foil used, making it ideal for many interesting crafting ideas.
So once you start playing with Rinea Foil you'll find that the possibilities of what you can create are endless! I actually had 4 projects in the works but narrowed it down to these two with a special giveaway at the end!
Project #1 is this lovely embossed earring holder.
- Rinea Glossy Silver Foil.
- A wooden frame from the dollar store.
- Tacky glue.
- Strong clear adhesive.
- The dull end of a narrow paint brush and 1 cotton swap.
- Scissors, a pencil, a stapler
- 26 gauge craft wire.
Trace frame onto foil with at least a 1" border inside and out. Save the scraps for later.
Trace sketch with a continuous line of glue.
Let glue dry until clear and hard. This can take up to 8 hours or just overnight.
Smooth the foil into the grooves with your fingers- not the sticky ones!
Apply glue to the remaining foil and fold over onto the sides and back of frame.
Repeat once or twice.
Feel free wind the excess wire through the staple if desired.
Add some wire at the top if you wish to hang your frame.
Ta da! Done!
Add your favorite earrings and enjoy!
I love how it looks like old embossed tin! Don't you?
So here's project #2. A colorful foil and crystal prism!
I "Love" crystal rainbows dancing in my kitchen and home.
Bobbing and twirling like little bits of magic.
Best part? The demo here is my giveaway!
- Rinea Foils- Star Struck
- 1" and 2" circle punch.
- Fishing line.
- Crystals and beads.
- A glue stick and scissors.
Punch (3) 2" circles from 2 different colored star foil. = 6 circles.
Fold a 3"x 6" foil in half.
Punch the 1" circle dead center.
Align the 2" circle as shown and punch.
Fold the six 2" circle in half.
Smear some glue onto one of the halves and place a second half on top, lining up the edges.
Repeat until all six are glued/stacked.
Don't glue the closing flap yet.
Thread one bead onto the fishing line. Bring ends together.
Now you can start threading your crystals and other beads.
Generously apply the glue stick to both of the circle flaps.
Pinch together and hold for about 10 seconds.
Apply the glue stick to both foil rings.
Place one ring just under the crystals, glue side up, then place the other ring firmly on top, making sure the fishing line hangs securely right down the center.
Hang in a bright window to catch sunlight and fill your home with cheery rainbows!
