$79.99 Heidi Swapp 12" Minc Foil Applicator & Starter Kit {YMMV}

So after posting my Star Wars foil project, I went to Michaels yesterday to pick up more foil for my Minc. I didn't notice until I got home that the prices I paid were less than the what the shelf tag had indicated. I went back this morning to take these pictures for y'all.

The local Michaels has put the Minc and some of the accessories on clearance but it seems that the actual prices are not as marked.

For example, the Minc foil applicator is tagged at a clearance price of $99.99 but it scanned at $79.99. That is an awesome price! The regular price is $149.99. If I didn't already have one, I would've bought it right away.

Some of the rolls of foil also rang up lower than the marked price. The 12" rolls that were marked on clearance for $6.99 actually rang up for $3.49 (reg. $9.99) while the 6" rolls that were not marked for clearance at all, rang up for $1.99 (reg. $5.99).

If you are looking to buy a Minc foil applicator, and if you have a Michaels in your neck of woods, it may be worth checking the store to see if they have the machine on clearance too.

Good luck!

The Foil Awakens

So I got me a Minc Foil Applicator last Christmas (Yay! Thank you, Me! lol. ) and I finally took it out of the box this weekend. I loved LD's latest Star Wars-inspired Cut Its but we have friends visiting from out of town so I didn't have much time to play. I thought that making foiled cards with the new designs would be a great way to kill two birds with one stone- I get to play with BOTH my new Minc and the new LD set at the same time!

In order to use the design for foiling, I had to convert it into a lined-shape first. In other words, I converted the colored SVG into an uncolored image (see tutorial HERE).

I printed the designs using my laser printer before running the page through the Minc foil applicator. The process was so easy and I loved how the cards turned out! So shiny. ♥

The negative (unused, leftover) foil looks really neat too and I'm going to try to use that to make another card. But first, I need to run to the craft store.

Must get more foil.
