LEARN HOW TO CREATE BEAUTIFUL FOIL MANDALAS USING CRICUT'S NEWEST TOOL – THE FOIL TRANSFER KIT
If you are a crafter, you probably have heard that Cricut released a new tool called the Foil Transfer Kit. It creates a pressed foil onto cardstock by using pressure instead of heat. It is, in one word, AMAZING! As soon as I heard about it, I knew I wanted to make foil mandalas!
So, I got to designing. This mandala took my five days to finish drawing but the result is SO SO worth it!
The detail this new tool can replicate is just incredible. I love the shine and texture it adds to the cardstock. So beautiful!
Now, I need to mention a few things about the Foil Transfer Tool. It can only be used with Desktop or Laptop. Like the Knife Blade, it is not compatible with Design Space mobile apps on your smartphone or tablet. Also, it cannot be used with a Cricut Joy machine.
In this tutorial, I’ll give you my step by step instructions and tell you what materials I think work best when making this project.
