I discovered iron on gold foil from happy crafters a few months ago and I’m just now getting around to making something with it. When I received the foil I was sad that it wasn’t a big sheet, but I quickly found out a little goes a long way. Once you cut out your words, you will have plenty of foil left over. I’ve made a couple of pillows with the same sheet since making this feeling lucky pillow.
