I’ve been foiling everything in sight since getting my hands on a Heidi Swapp Minc foil applicator a few weeks ago, and today I’m thrilled to share another project using this amazing machine! My obsession with all things holographic/iridescent is still running strong, so when I found out about this hologram foil I just knew I wanted to do something fun and summery with it. So here’s a little something to jazz up any backyard BBQs or late summer picnics – hologram foil ice cream cone wrappers!
These ice cream cone wrappers are super cute in just black and white, so you can totally use the printable template even if you haven’t yet gotten yourself a Minc. But seriously, you should totally get one. I’ve been having SO much fun with mine, and there are tons of foil colors and options to play around with!
To make the ice cream cone wrappers:
Step 1. Print out the template on text weight paper using a laser printer. The Minc foil applicator works with toner ink, so if you don’t have access to a laser printer you can print the template on an ink jet printer and then make copies on a copier.
Step 2. I found I got better results and more mileage from the foil if I cut out each individual wrapper before running it through the Minc foil applicator. Cut out each individual ice cream cone wrapper, being careful to cut just outside the outline. Cut a piece of hologram foil just large enough to cover the ice cream wrapper.
Step 3. Place as many ice cream cone wrappers and pieces of foil as you can fit inside the transfer folder – foil side up. Run through the Minc foil applicator. Peel away the excess foil and voila!
I just can’t get enough of those rainbow shimmers. Holographic everything!
