How To Make Snowflake Luminaries with Grafix’s Metallic Foil Board

Project Description: Use metallic foil board to create unique gifts or incorporate in your everyday crafting.

Designed by: Tami Sanders

Difficulty: Easy

Materials: 

Steps to Make This:

  1. Scan in designs or cut and paste patterns from the web into a word processing program. Resize as needed.
  2. Cut a 4 X 11 piece of silver foil a 6 X 11 1/2 piece of gold foil and an 8 X 12 piece of blue foil. (The graduated lengths will allow your luminaries to nest for storage.)
  3. On the back, measure and mark the center of the silver foil.
  4. Arrange your snowflake pattern on the back, lining it up with the marks, and then tape down your template.
  5. Place foil, pattern side up on mat and begin punching the holes along the pattern lines.
  6. Continue following pattern and punching holes in the pattern.
  7. When you have punched holes in all the lines, carefully take off the pattern to see how you did.
  8. Place 2 strips of double sided tape on one end of the silver foil.
  9. Wrap foil around to back, remove liners from tape and adhere.
  10. Press your thumb or finger over the seam to be sure it is secure.
  11. Also rub the seam from the inside of the piece.
  12. Repeat with gold foil and 2 more snowflakes.
  13. If a dot gets stuck in a hole, try poking it through with a pin.
  14. Finally, repeat the process with 3 snowflakes and blue foil.
