I enjoy spoiling teachers and if you’re like me, you are preparing end of the school year gifts. I’m sharing two free downloads (see below) that you can use to create teacher gifts. One prints solid black that is meant to be printed using a laser printer so that you can add foil. The other is a colored printable that is ready to use, in case you don’t have the supplies to foil.
My video shows how to do multi-color foiling. A lot of folks have asked how to do this!
To do foiling on a printed image, you must use a laser printer. (I like THIS one.) Foil transfer sheets bonds to the toner that a laser printer uses. After printing on cardstock, I added small pieces of colored foil to completely cover the printing. I then ran it through my Mini Minc Machine to bond the foil. You could use an inexpensive laminator though!
I used a Paper Smooches Notebook Die to cut the images out. Since it is a solid die, I cut one from a piece of scrap cardstock and used the negative portion as a guide to center it on the image. You can also just cut out the image without using a die to simplify the process.
I made the card bases a bit smaller than usual – 3.5″ x 5″. I did some tone on tone stamping on the cards using two different alphabet backgrounds from Simon Says Stamp and Hero Arts.
When presenting card sets as gifts, I like to put them in clear boxes. There is now a smaller size of clear box available which fit these smaller cards perfectly!
If you don’t have the things needed to do foiling, you could print my other free download. This is colored… so just print on a colored printer and you are good to go!
I enjoy making notecard sets… and it is by far one of my favorite gifts to give. It’s an inexpensive gift that comes from the heart.
Here are two free downloads. Just print, cut, and create!
