STEP ONE:


Lay a sheet of cardstock face up onto your mat, make sure that it is well stuck down. Next, lay a sheet of foil over the top of the cardstock, use the white tape strips in the pack to tape down the foil on all four sides pulling it taut as you go.


STEP TWO:


Open up the project in Cricut Design Space. Make sure that the line type is changed to foil and the thickness to fine in the drop-down line type menu.


STEP THREE:


Select medium cardstock as your material setting, then load the mat into the machine. Load the foil transfer tool with the fine tip (has the single line) into the blade port on your machine. Start the machine, once the foiling is complete the machine will eject the mat out further than usual so that you can remove the foil sheet without removing the mat from the machine. Once the foil sheet is removed, change the foil tool for the fine point blade and start cutting.


STEP FOUR:


Once cut carefully remove the card from the mat, be sure to peel the mat away from the material to prevent the card from curling.


Repeat the is process with the second tag, then thread both tags with ribbon before attaching to your gift!
