Inkssentials Metal Foil Tape Baby Album Step 1

Step 1: Trim foil to 6 X 5. Insert foil right side up into the embossing folder. Gently close the folder with the logo side up. Set the multi-purpose platform of the Sizzix on Tab 1. Insert the embossing folder between the plastic plates and place in the Vagabond with the logo facing you. Emboss the foil.


Step 2: Carefully remove the foil from the paper backing. Foil will want to curl. Make sure that the foil doesn’t stick to itself. With sticky side up, carefully place the mat board down on the foil. Turn the mat board over and smooth lightly with your hand.
