Rinea® Paper Foil

For our final blog hop in 2016, designers were invited to spark their creativity with Rinea® Double-Sided Paper Foil from Global Crafting.

Rinea paper-foil is a specialty crafting material imported from Germany. It is made up of two thin layers of colorful aluminum foil with a sheet of paper sandwiched between them. This creates paper-like sturdiness and stiffness with the shininess and malleability of foil. It will maintain the shape however it is bent or folded without wrinkling, making it ideal for a wide variety of arts and crafts projects. The paper-like characteristic also makes it perfect for embossing and die-cutting.  It can easily be cut with regular, or decorative edge scissors and punches. 

Rinea foil paper comes in many interesting color combinations including bold, pastel, and metallic colors with glossy, matte and embossed finishes giving you lots of options to play with. This is one of the most popular projects made with the foil, showing a combination of colors.

Not just for holiday decorating, Rinea paper foil can be used for projects throughout the year. Check the gallery of ideas here then see what DCC member designers have created.
