  1. Read time: 1 minute
  2. Written by: Crafter's Companion

Make your message shine bright with a super simple craft that can transform your papercraft projects in seconds! 

With just a couple of products including gilding flakes and a glue pen, you can create a gorgeous foiled sentiment or design that stands out from the crowd! 

Follow our tutorial below to get started.

You will need:

Spectrum Noir Gilding Flakes

Crafter’s Companion Glue Pen Set

Black Multi-Purpose Card

A small sponge

Creating your message:

  1. Take your black multi-purpose card or card of choice and lay this flat
  1. Using a glue pen with your nib of choice, simply write your message or draw a picture. It’s entirely up to you! 
  1. Grab some gilding flakes and with your fingers, dab these onto the glue message or picture that you designed before. This may look messy, but don’t worry!
  1. Give the glue a moment to dry then take your small sponge and simply wipe away the additional flakes, leaving your perfectly foiled message behind!

This is such a simple, yet effective craft that can be created in seconds! Use it on occasional cards, home decor and more!
