Foil Art Prints Supplies (affiliate links provided for convenience):
- White Cardstock – I use 65lb white cardstock.
- Foil Transfer Sheets – I used this rainbow shattered glass foil and I also used this rainbow foil. There are a ton of other transfer foil options like this metallics bundle set and this vibrant colors set that has a lot of great Christmas colors.
- Laminator – I have this inexpensive laminator and it works wonderfully!
- Art Files – I’ve created three to get your started. You can use any other art files, but it will need to be printed in black and white. Download the files here: Christmas Tree, Christmas Gnome, and Snowman.
- Laser Printer – I have this laser printer. But don’t worry if you don’t have one, just head to your nearest Staples, Office Depot, FedEx Office or anywhere that makes prints and copies and have them make the prints for you. Just be sure they are made with a laser printer.
Foil Art Prints Directions
- Print your art prints on white cardstock using a laser printer. Use your own or download the Christmas designs I created here: Christmas Tree, Christmas Gnome, and Snowman. If you’re looking for other designs, check out my other foil art post. You might need to reduce or increase the printing % based on the the size of the foil piece you are using.
- Cut the foil down to size and place a single piece of art foil over the image. The foil should have the color side up. See above under supplies for my favorite foil colors.
- Turn on the laminator and once heated, feed the card stock art print with the foil on top through the laminator. I use my laminator at the 5mm setting. It works on 3mm as well, but I prefer the 5mm setting. I hold the foil in place as it’s going through the printer until it takes hold.
- Once through the laminator, slowly peel the foil back from the cardstock.
