Here's a full video tutorial that shows how simple this process is:


The We R Memory Keepers Foil Quill comes with 3 quills, 2 the small size and 1 larger one. They plug into a USB port, and there's one right on the side of the Cricut Maker. It plugs in and heats up. There's a heat shield to protect the machine while it warms. There's also 4 adapters that come with the quill to insert into any cutting machine. Adapter C is what you need for the Cricut.

Step 1: Set Up

Begin by twisting the C adapter onto the quill and plugging it into the USB port on the side of the Maker. Pop the adapter out of the pen tool slot on the left side of the maker. Then push the quill in the slot.

Then tape the foil on the top of the paper with the washi tape that is included with the quill. The shiny metallic side of the foil should be facing up.

The We R Memory Keepers Foil Quill is awesome and draws just like a pen. I don't know about you, but I get super nervous every time I do a new project...but this one basically does itself. Don't panic, just try it!

When it finishes up, it looks so messy! Eek, I thought it had messed up. The lines look dashy and messy...but guess what!?

Repeat this process for as many cards as your heart desires. I did it in gold, rose gold and silver. I love it and am kind of tempted to send out Christmas cards this year!


Which color is your favorite? I love the gold, it's classic and fabulous. I love the rose gold, it's warm and coppery! And of course the silver, it's perfect with the silver bells vibe. There's heat foil in every color, so the sky is the limit. This is definitely a tool you'll use every season for every event!

Cricut has lots of drawing fonts, so you can add a foil greeting to the inside of the card too.

Make fancy foiled name place settings, gift tags, and greeting cards. Or get a little more extra by foiling leather, fabric or any medium that fits in a Cricut Maker!
