DIY Minc Tiny House Ornaments
Create delight with DIY ornaments using your Minc Machine
I could not wait to make these houses. They are simple. Elegant. And all sparkly thanks to the Minc Machine and Reactive Foil. And whether you use a digital cut file to cut paper ornaments, or dies with your favorite die cutting machine, the magic is there when you ‘Minc’ them all up with a pretty festive design.
You can see all the details in this video HERE. But what I really want to share with you is how amazingly easy it is to make gorgeous foiled projects with the Minc Machine.
One of the main tips I share in the video is this: see the white cardstock with the snowflake stencil and foil finish in the above photo? I have been making those ‘pre-makes’ ahead of time. Let me explain: while I had the Minc Texture Paste out, and sort of making a little mess, I stenciled several pieces of cardstock, and even vellum, all at one time. Then I laid them all out to dry. Overnight even, because you really want to let that texture paste dry very well. I explain that more in the video. Now I have several sheets of Minc Textured designs all at the ready. I have just recently been using this little trick and I am really loving how it’s working for me. That’s my biggest tip of all today.
When I had some time to get to making these paper ornaments, well I already had several Minc Texture Paste designs at the ready. I did not have to wait around to let them dry. I just grabbed one. Foiled it through the Minc Machine. And then cut it in this house shape!
There is still time to craft this holiday season. Things made by you make all the difference. To your mind set. To your giving. To just a slow down way to enjoy the holiday. This is just one way I make it that much more easier for myself.
The wow factor the Minc Silver Stars Foil has on these little houses is gasp-worthy. Even my kids are taken back by how cute these houses are. I just love them.
And I would love for you to be inspired to make this season. Made by you is everything. Enjoy the season of making.
