I’m adding a hot foil touch to the classic alphabet magnet in this project, which combines the crafty powers of the Heidi Swapp Minc and Silhouette Cameo. This creative combo allows you to quickly whip up colorful, hot foil creations, including everything from the magnets that we’re making here to embellishments and alphas for handmade cards, scrapbook pages, and party projects. Lots of possibilities!
If you don’t have the Minc or another machine for hot foiling, then it’s no problem at all because there are lots of great metallic and foil papers on the market right now, and you can easily substitute with those if you aren’t able to make your own foil cardstock.
In the video below, I’ll also show you how to easily make your own toner sheets right in Silhouette Studio, but if you don’t happen to have a laser printer, I’ve gotten great results with both the Heidi Swapp Minc Toner Sheets and with the Thermoweb iCraft Deco Foil Toner Sheets.
