fourth of July Minc banner

Today I’m getting festive with My Heidi Swapp’s Minc machine! I’m so loving foiling everything! And this machine makes it like a magic act! Easily the best and fastest way to foil!  patriotic 4th of July banner and sign using Minc machine from Heidi swapp a girl and a glue gun

And we are making a fun Fourth of July banner!  heidi swapp minc machine The words are a fun set specific for the Minc…Think how cute to do a birthday banner, or your kids name for their room!
abc minc accessory I totally just noticed that on Heidi Swapp’s kits they tell you your heat setting (I use a 3 on everything I’ve done.) but It’s still cool to know without having to wonder on thickness!  setting for minc Lay it out on the clear plastic  and cover with foil… lay out letters on plastic sheet for minc Smooth it all out so there are no bubbles or wrinkles! smooth out foil and send through your machine… send the foil through the minc machine and get one of your kids to come in and do a drumroll on the table…cause it’s always super fun to peel it up and reveal the foil!! peel up to reveal foil all the things

 I then added a fun banner from another Heidi Swapp kit:
