Step 1
Using a pair of scissors or paper punch, cut out the desired shape from the glueFOIL.
Step 2
Position foil onto item to be embellished.

Note: There is no fixative used beyond what the foil has on it already--the foil is held in place carefully, with your hands, while you apply the heat.
Step 3
Using an iron of your choice, apply heat to the surface of the glueFOIL to activate the adhesive. Hold for a second or two depending on the heat of the tool.

Additional Tips:

Optional: Emboss glueFOIL with the Epic Six Quickutz tool.
