With the holidays approaching and a wedding to plan, we’ve got paper crafts on our mind! In today’s tutorial, we show you how to add foil to any paper craft you’re working on–whether you want to foil a holiday card, foil a save the date or foil a wedding invitation.

While foiling *is* easy once you figure out all of the settings, getting to that point isn’t as easy as a lot of YouTube videos we used to research suggested. That’s why we decided to make this video. Not only do we show you how to foil with a laminator, but we also show you how to foil with a heat press and how to foil with adhesives. And we don’t just leave it there–we share allllll of our foil troubleshooting tips to help you work around issues with foiling.


If you’re considering buying a Glowforge, we’d appreciate it if you use our GLOWFORGE REFERRAL LINK. You can get up to $500 off, and we’ll get something too, which will enable us to keep creating content!
