Rinea® Foil Ornament

Rinea® Foil by Global Crafting, is a wonderful crafting foil that is thicker than regular aluminum foil, comes in an array of beautiful colours, and cuts easily.

Today. the Designer Crafts Connection members are sharing the projects they (I) have made working with this wonderful product.

Here is my ornament:

Here are process photos of how I made the ornament.

I began with a clear acrylic DIY Ornament purchased at a store.  I added some red alcohol based ink to the inside of the clear ball and let the ink dry.

On the outside, I applied some yellow ink.  I also altered the silver top of the ornament with some metallic gold ink.

Once all the inks had dried I added some confetti.

Now for the Rinea foil!  Following the video instructions on the Rinea® site ( I made the green and gold star.

From the same green and gold foil, I also punched out some borders.

I adhered the foil borders by turning them into stickers, using a Xyron Sticker maker.  Which essentially adds adhesive to one side.

I adhered the foil star with some tacky glue.

To make the gold ruffle I did a gathering stitch through a piece of golden ribbon.

Finally, I adhered the ribbon ruffle with some tacky glue, and threaded some gold colored thread through the hanger loop.

I hope that you are inspired to try using Rinea® paper crafting foil by Global Crafting in your own creative projects.  I truly enjoyed working with the product myself.
