May 31st, 2015

theprojectgirl-butterfly-chalkboardI’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.

Supplies:

Minc Foil Applicator

Minc 3D Butterflies

light pink foil

mint foil

hot pink foil

rose gold foil

green foil

3/8″ small magnets

Ad tech glue gun

The Minc 3D butterflies come pre-cut, you just have to punch them out, and then run them through the MINC machine with the color of foil that you like.

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. theprojectgirl-foil-minc

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. theprojectgirl-butterfly-chalkboard-full

Look how cute they turned out, and so so so metallic. I love the bright and fun colors of all the MINC foils. theprojectgirl-butterfly-chalkboard

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.
