Making a Winter Placemat with Foil Snowflakes
Start by cutting your HeatnBond into a snowflake. Cut off a square, fold in half, then fold into thirds.
Use scissors to cut a snowflake design. You can have the kids help with this part!
Make as many cuts as you need until you're happy with the results!
Once you are done cutting, unfold.
Following the directions on the HeatnBond packaging, place the snowflake paper-side-up on the placemat, and fuse into place with a hot iron. (Kids will need adult supervision with this step, of course!)
Allow the design to cool, then peel away the paper.
Place the foil on top of the design, and fuse into place.
Allow the fusible to cool, then peel up the foil.
If your design was bigger than your foil sheet, place the sheet over the un-foiled sections, and press again. Do not allow the iron to touch the finished sections, this will lift up the foil.
Your snowflake foiled placemat is complete! Set your table, and have all your guests admire your handiwork!
This is perfect for a winter-themed party, New Year's Eve celebration, or even just to dress up the dreary post-Christmas winter season.
