Supplies:
Therm O Web iCraft® Deco Foil™ Transfer Sheets- Gold and Turquoise
Therm O Web iCraft® Deco Foil™ White Foam Adhesive Sheets

Die: Sizzix
Trim: May Arts

AudreyPettit Thermoweb DecoFoil SeahorseWrap Tut1 To begin, gather your supplies. You will need a die and ribbon of your choice, some iCraft® Deco Foil™ Transfer Sheets and Foam Adhesive sheets.

AudreyPettit Thermoweb DecoFoil SeahorseWrap Tut2Die cut your desired image four times from the white double-sided adhesive foam sheets. Steel rule dies work best for this technique, as you need a die strong enough to cut through the foam as well as two layers of release paper.

AudreyPettit Thermoweb DecoFoil SeahorseWrap Tut3Cut a piece of Deco Foil™ Transfer Sheet that is slightly larger than your die cut image. Peel off the top layer of release paper from the foam.

AudreyPettit Thermoweb DecoFoil SeahorseWrap Tut4Lay the foil down onto the exposed foam, with the colored side up and the silver side down. Gently rub over the entire image using your finger.

AudreyPettit Thermoweb DecoFoil SeahorseWrap Tut6Repeat the process for the remaining foam shapes. I added gold Deco Foil™ to two of the seahorses, and turquoise Deco Foil™ to the second pair, but you can use whatever colors you wish.

Wrap your package and tie it with a ribbon bow. Starting at the top, and working a small section at a time, peel off the backing of one of the foam pieces. Press the adhesive foam against the tail end of one side of the bow.

AudreyPettit Thermoweb DecoFoil SeahorseWrap Tut8Peel off the top portion of a second foiled die cut, line it up with the first shape, and press the two pieces together with the ribbon sandwiched between. Once you’ve got the two pieces lined up perfectly, continue to remove the backing paper, pressing the shapes together as you go.

AudreyPettit Thermoweb DecoFoil SeahorseWrap2Repeat the process with the second pair of Deco Foiled shapes on the other tail end of the ribbon. And there you have an instant, customized Deco Foil™ gift bow.

Enjoy!
