I’m having so much fun with my MINC foiling machine. I created some adorable metallic butterfly magnets and it was seriously so fast and easy.
3/8″ small magnets
After they’ve run through the machine, you pull away the foil sheet, and everywhere that was black on the butterflies is now fabulously metallic. For this project, I used the light pink hot pink, rose gold, mint, and green foils.
The foil transferred so well on these, they look like they are made of metal not paper. For the magnet part, I just got some small round magnets, and used my handy Adtech HiTemp glue gun. I gently folded the wings up, and then glued the flat part of the butterfly body to the magnet.
All the little butterflies turned out so so cute!
I recently bought this GIANT magnetic chalkboard from Chalk Couture (they custom painted it for me too!), and knew the butterfly magnets would be perfect for it. So I wrote a little spring quote, and then added all my butterfly magnets too it.
All these supplies should be available at your local Jo-ann and Hobby Lobby as well as a variety of online stores. And I have to say that I was super impressed at how well the foil transferred onto these butterflies using the MINC machine. I have a regular laminator and have done some foil transfer stuff before, but these turned out phenomenally using the MINC.
