If you have a regulars inkjet print, steam iron (or laminating machine), and some papers you can create beautiful projects and designs.

You can use it for business cards, calendar, greeting cards, and so many other projects. You can print your text or design on the desired paper. Then put the transferring foil over the area the ink is printed. Put an extra paper over the foil to protect the design.
