Hello guys! It’s Aki from Minted Strawberry – I am so excited to share my first post here at Crafts Unleashed. I love organizing at the start of the year – and I also like making printables. Get organized with a reusable grocery list template on your fridge – it’s very handy to have it near so you can list whatever you don’t have easily. I made several and foiled a couple – see how I made them below!
- Heidi Swapp Minc Machine or Mini Minc Machine
- Heidi Swapp Minc Foil
- Grocery List Template Printable (download here | download A5 size here)
- Scotch Thermal Laminating Pouches
- Steel Ruler
- Craft knife or Box cutter
- Glue Arts Glue Glider Pro
- Magnet Strip
- Parchment Paper
- Cardstock paper
Step 1. Print the grocery list template printable on cardstock and cut it down to size. I have provided two sizes for you – a normal shopping list sized at 7.75″ x 3.25″ and an 8.27″ high perfect for an A5 size planner if you use one. It is important to note that you have to print the printable on a laser printer if you want to foil it. If you are not planning to foil it, you can use an inkjet printer.
Step 3. Turn your Minc machine on, pre-heating it for about 5 minutes – I find that this gives the best results when it comes to foiling. Run it through your Minc using a plastic carrier sheet. Cut off another piece of cardstock the same size as your list to make it sturdier.
Step 4. Now cut a sheet of thermal laminating pouch to size, leaving about 1/8″ of an inch all around the market list. If you are intending to use it as an insert for your planner, leave a wide margin on the left-hand size of the list so you can cut it to size later on. Insert your list in between the laminating pouch and back it with the cardstock you cut to size. Run it through the Minc machine to laminate the whole thing.
Step 5. Finally, use glue to adhere the magnetic piece on the back of your grocery list template if you are intending to use it on your fridge. If you are using it as a planner insert, use a hole punch to make the holes suitable for your planner.
