Make it Christmas: #1 Star Ornaments- Minc that Star!

I've been playing with felt and my Heidi Swapp Minc machine to create foiled Christmas stars and I thought I'd show you how I did it so you can do it too!
You will need some double sided fusible webbing for Fabric, a Minc machine and foil, scissors or dies to cut your shapes and the felt pieces that you want to add foil to.
 First cut the adhesive to match one of the stars. In whatever shape you would like.

  Peel the backing off of one side of the adhesive and place on the front of the felt piece that you would like to foil. Put this inside a piece of folded parchment/ baking paper (or scrap paper) to prevent adhesive getting on the Minc folder. Put this inside of the Minc folder and then run through the Minc. I put mine on the highest setting of 5 which worked well.
 The adhesive should have stuck to the felt.
 Now peel the paper off of the top of the felt, place the foil on top then back inside the protective parchment paper then inside the Minc folder then run through the Minc again. Now you can pull back the foil to reveal a foiled felt star.
 You can stitch this into your star ornament any way you would like.

Its super easy and works really well!
I'm really loving the 'joy' ornament. so much fun to make and this wont be the last of gold foiling Christmas ornaments!
