I’ve reached the point in my foiling obsession where I will try to foil absolutely anything. It started with paper. Paper pinwheels. Paper notebooks. Paper calendars. Now I’ve graduated to the “how many things can I put through my Minc before it starts smoking.” Well – good news is that this sucker is still plugging along and I now have a set of leather gift tags to prove it. Yes. You heard me. Leather. Try putting leather through a regular ol’ laminator. That the thing will go up in flames. The Minc can do it. The Minc can do anything. Minc for president!

What you need:

  1. Place washi tape onto leather tags
  2. Use foam brush to apply a thin layer of the transfer adhesive

  1. Peel back the washi tape then allow the transfer adhesive to dry for about 30-60 minutes. It will still be tacky to the touch.
  2. Place a piece of foil onto the leather tag

  1. With the Minc setting on “5” place the foil and tag into a folder and run through the machine

  1. This is such a great idea!! Do you think you would need to seal the leather if you did this on something that would be touched often…like a keychain? My head is spinning with the possibilities :).

  2. Hi Amber,

    I stumbled upon your site some time ago and this is my first response. I love your creativity!!! I’ve always felt creatively challenged but I love these tags!!! I’m currently trying to come up with ideas to package my leather tote bags and this is great inspiration. It’s also funny I’ve been thinking about foiling and was wondering how easy it was.

    Thanks for the inspiration
