Blog Hop with Rinea and Designer Crafts Connection

Hello and welcome to our hop!

We have such a talented group of designers participating in the hop - so be sure to hop over to the Designer Crafts Connection blog to check them all out. 

Rinea is a foiled double sided paper that holds it shape. It is truly amazing!

Since it holds it's shape I wanted to try embossing and sanding to make some home decor and I will say I love the way it turned out!

Supplies Needed:

  • Rinea papers - Available in a variety of colors
  • 2 - 4" X 4" wood blocks
  • Embossing folder of your choice
  • Die cut machine for embossing
  • Scissors
  • White craft glue
  • Sand paper - fine
  • Brush
  • Paper towel
  • Folk Art Antique Medium
  • Matte Varnish

First choose your colors and embossing folder, emboss your paper.

Once embossed, adhere Rinea paper to the block of wood. Make sure it is centered. Cut excess off.

Take a fine grit sand paper or block and lightly sand over the paper.

See below how the shine of the paper in some areas are sanded. It still kept it's shape. Now just add antiquing medium to the whole block including the top.

I added a coat of Matte varnish to protect. Let dry and they are ready to display!

I think they are beautiful!
