Foil Engraving

To make this craft project you will need scissors, cardboard, newsprint, foil, tape, and a knitting needle.

To begin, cut the cardboard to the shape you want the engraving to be and then cut out several pieces of newsprint the same size.

Next take a piece of foil, a little bit bigger than twice the length of the cardboard.

Double the foil.

Place the newsprint on top of the foil, than place the cardboard on top of the newsprint.

Wrap the edges of the foil around the cardboard and tape them to the back.

Turn the cardboard over and smooth any wrinkles in the foil.

Now take your knitting needle and draw gently on the foil.  Add paint afterwards if you like.

 Enjoy Crafting!
