I thought someone used an iron but not sure. I guess one way to know is to try it.

how to foil without a machine

can I use an iron?

Joyce, you can use a double sided tape such as Scor-tape and add stripes to your card stock and then take the foil and place it colored shiny side up on the strips and then with your fingers or a tool press down onto the sticky areas and the foil will stick to the design. I think there are certain glues that work that way too. There are videos if  you google Ways to Foil Without a Machine that will give lots of ideas to you.

Hello everyone, my question is how can I foil without a machine?

Joyce, did you mean the folders that are used with the Mini Minc Machine? I've ruined a couple of those, too. They sometimes get stuck in the machine and come out all rippled.

Has anyone tried foiling on vellum using the Royal Sovereign laminator?

Comment by Joyce Nohner on February 19, 2018 at 12:28pm

I bought a Amazon laminator & it is a big piece of junk, it doesn't work, I watched Gina K videos & I still can't figure it out, so I guess I'm gonna buy the Royal Sovener laminator

Joyce.  The best way to learn is to watch You Tube videos.  Gina also shows how in some of her videos.  Not sure what you mean with “pouches”?  Are you laminating or foiling?  Hugs!

I just bought a new lamator & am having trouble using it, I have wasted a few pouches & don't want to waste more, could you please explain to me how to use it, Thank You, Joyce Nohner

Thank you Diana.  I hadn't thought of the kit boxes, what a perfect solution.
