An Apple (crumb muffin) for Teacher

It’s time for another MINC project! (go here to see all my other fun projects!) I am pretty much obsessed with this machine and find any excuse I can to #foilallthethings #truestory. I needed a quick gift for my kids teachers (my kids are back in schooollllll! yeehaw!)

and I had these costco muffins…..
apple muffin teacher appreciation gift Here’s my fun loot….Heidi Swapp has so many fun packs that go with her minc machine! Cards and tags and pinwheels and calendars. minc supplies calendar cute envelopes

This is what I’m working with for this project! Plain black sheets!!!
minc sheets I wanted to use them to run  through my Silhouette Cameo to get a perfect cut—- cut with silhouette and it totally works! I just chose cardstock and followed those settings! Then peel up your design! cut out clipart with cameo Then it’s time to add the magic…FOIL!  how to run the minc machine It seriously is AMAZING every time! I never get sick of peeling up the foil to reveal the perfect project!

You can also print on the backside of these Heidi swapp sheets and use that as a guide to cut out a design if you don’t have an electronic cutter! print on the back I used some leftover strips, foiled them up and ran them through my fiskars paper crimper…it’s two rollers that makes it all crinkly! make a fun design pattern Wrap around a muffin and add some bakers twine or ribbon!
muffin wrap Hot glue the minced out designs to a toothpick and plop in a muffin! minc muffin picks pencil topper I ended up wrapping them in cellophane for my kids to hand out!  muffin minc teacher gifts Make sure to grab your own Minc machine at your local craft store! (Our Joann Stores has most of these fun minc supplies and packets!)
