A few of us from the Clearsnap creative team are excited to share some ideas today for using gold foil! I’m sharing an easy way to add foil on fabric and I can’t wait to see the rest of the projects too. Please join us for this little blog hop and a giveaway too.
Gold Foil. Mmmmm. I love the pretty, shiny, luxe look of it and the truth is gold looks good with everything. So happy that this trend is here to stay. So rather than using paint, which tends to look flat, have you been wondering about ways to DIY a little gold foil into your life? Me too and I am so happy to have found a way.
Well I suppose I should give the credit for figuring this out to my husband. He seemed pretty amused that I was trying to figure out the perfect amount of time for glue to dry for it to be just tacky enough for the foil to stick. He’s the type who just knows how things work and he’s not afraid to rub it in my face. That is, after I pulled “common knowledge” on him.
He was complaining about the mower no longer cutting well. To which I say, that’s because you always mow when the grass is wet. Duh. Isn’t that just common knowledge? You’re not supposed to do that.
Well apparently it really bruised his manly ego, cause that was 6 years ago and I am still hearing about it today.
“You don’t know how many feet are in a mile, Sabrina? Well isn’t that common knowledge?!”
“How many pounds are in a ton? You should know that, it’s common knowledge!”
Yeah. He brings it up as often as possible.
So I’ll give credit to my clever husband for figuring out a way to get gold foil to stick to fabric. Because waiting the perfect amount of time for the glue to be just tacky enough is not a great method at all.
In any case, I really love the effect and it’s perfect for adding small gold foil embellishments, like the heart I added to this travel pouch. All you need is fabric, foil, glue and an iron. Check out the quick video below for all the instructions.
