Laser State Art

Show everyone the place your heart calls home! Craft this awesome Laser State Art. This DIY wall art would be fabulous in an entryway, or as a pretty living room piece. You also can make a whole gallery wall of all the states your friends and family members live in, so you have a reminder of them in your home even if they live a long distance away. Chic DIY laser art makes a perfect gift for faraway friends or loved ones, too. You can try this fun and easy technique with any state or favorite image or sentiment you adore.

Materials List

  • Frame, 5”x7”
  • White glossy cardstock, 8-1/2”x11”
  • iCraft® Deco Foil™ Transfer Sheets: Gold, Red
  • iCraft® Deco Foil™ Foam Adhesive Sheets
  • iCraft® Deco Foil™ Parchment Paper
  • 12” Royal Sovereign Foil Laminator
  • Tools: computer, laser printer, state graphic of choice, tiny heart punch

Instructions

Follow manufacturer’s directions throughout. Technique must be done using a laser-printed image; if you do not have a laser printer, make a copy at a copy center, local library or post office.

Step-by-Step Instructions

  1. Download state graphic, resizing as needed. Print onto center of cardstock and trim to fit frame.

  2. Place cardstock, image side up, inside folded parchment paper. Cut piece of Gold Deco Foil Transfer Sheet slightly larger than image and place over cardstock, color side up.

  3. Turn on Royal Sovereign laminator and preheat at 5mil setting for 10 minutes. If you have a different laminator, be sure to do a test image before creating final project.

  4. Insert folded parchment paper into laminator with fold at lead edge. Rollers will “catch” parchment and pull it through.

  5. Remove piece from laminator and let cool.

  6. Peel away foil sheet to reveal image.

  7. Punch tiny heart from Deco Foil Foam Adhesive Sheet. Remove top paper liner from heart and cover sticky side with sheet of Red Deco Foil, color side up. Rub over heart with fingertips.

  8. Peel away foil sheet. Remove paper liner from back of heart and press to image.

  9. Insert finished laser art into frame.
