Sweet Foil Sample

I love using recycled items to make glorious textures. this one on the right 
is made up of a piece of felt,
 Bondaweb and then sweet foils and Christmas party hats applied
making sure I use parchment or baking paper to protect my iron.
You can then stitch all over it.
Use an open machine embroidery stitch as the close ones
will perforate the foil.
To seal the surface so that it can be used as a book cover
or have durability paint on acrylic wax or
soft beeswax or soft boot polish.
Allow it to harden before you buff!
