I first discovered foiled paper while living in Germany. I thought it was over priced wrapping paper because it looked like it on rolls at the market. I soon learned that it is what they use to make the traditional German stars at Christmas to hang on their trees.
Upon returning to the United States I forgot about the paper and the tradition. That all changed at Creativation 2017 when I was introduced to the owners of Rinea Foiled Paper. After growing up in Germany making these stars with the nuns and moving back to the states, Diane (one of the owners) decided to bring the paper to America. I have been on the design team ever since meeting her in 2017! It is one of the only ones I serve on now because I am passionate about the paper and the history behind it.
Here are a few things I have created the last few months with the paper.
I used Mocha Starstruck as a base and poured resin that I had added alcohol ink to create this pendant.
Rinea Foiled Paper is also wonderful as shaker bits! I like to take my scraps and use them inside shakers.
Delicate Floral Frames
Foiled paper is my favorite substrate to use with my delicate dies. The secret is to use two sheets. It allows the die to cut cleaner and not get stuck in the metal.
This is my favorite recent creations with Rinea Foiled Paper. I used Colorburst for the background and layered the fairies on top of the tags with a sentiment and gems. The delicate (and sometimes tiny wings) were perfect with Rinea by Poppy Stamps https://shareasale.com/r.cfm?b=1465949&u=1740744&m=93612&urllink=&afftrack=.
A Few Videos
Finally, here are a few video tutorials I created for the Rinea channel.
