Don't Toss the Foil

Don't Toss the Foil


I love butterflies. So it is not surprising when I started looking for something to make that would shine, the Basic Butterfly Framelits jumped in my hand.
Want to know the secret to making this butterfly totally awesome! First here is the list of supplies you will need:

  • Heavy Duty Aluminum foil 
  • Big Shot with 1 A plates (clear), magnet plate and precision plate.
  • fun foam (it you use the thin kind, plan on 2 sheet per cut)
  • framelit 
  • Alcohol ink
  • supplies to complete your cards
 -Let's get started. First, tear off a piece of heavy duty aluminum foil about 12" long. Now fold it in half the long way, then, fold in half again. You will have 8 layers of foil.

fold foil in half

 Let make our 'sandwich' to put in the Big Shot. 
  • Magnet plate
  • precision plate
  • fun foam
  • foil
  • framelit 
  • clear A plate
Just an FYI it will be a tight fit.


This are beautiful just like this but lets move one step further. I use alcohol ink in my aqua painters. Alcohol inks dry fast, so you will need to work fast. 

I enjoy this process so much, I forgot when to stop...... So I made it my swap when I went to OnStage in Atlanta, Ga.


I hope you enjoy making this foil cuts as much as I do. Show me what you have made using your dye cuts and foil.
