Paper Foil Craft - The golden Nightingale

I came up with some more interesting craft. The paper foil craft is very interesting and looks really beautiful. Its nothing to say difficult to make. You will enjoy making different things out of these paper foils. I used silver paper foil which is easily available in market but, it was difficult for me to get the golden foils so nothing to think much just got some cadbury chocolates and got the golden foils.

Materials you need:
1. Paper foils (Golden and Silver)
2. Card paper
3. Glue

How to make it:

1. Make sure the design you want to make and cut the paper foils accordingly.

2. Here I first cut the small branches using silver foil then cut the birds using golden foil.

3. Cut the small leaves you need accordingly.

4. Make sure whatever you need for the design is cut ready.

5. Now apply glue very carefully on each pieces and stick it on the card paper.

Paper foil is a very delicate material so be very careful while cutting small parts of designs.

In this way you can make lot of different kind of designs using these simple foil papers.

Here is the one I made.
