They look great! A trick that I figured out… I used a metallic-finished scrapbook paper, cut in half (to fit in my printer), and printed on the “best” setting, with photo paper selected. As soon as the paper was fed out of printer, you have to quickly dump the powder on top, and if you are fast enough, you can get the powder to stick to the ink! Then set it aside and start the next. Repeat process, and then use the heat gun to melt the powder on each of your prints at the end (so that the gun doesn’t cool down in between prints).

Best of luck 🙂

VERY cool! I really like the kraft-colored paper you used for these! I’m going eco-friendly with almost every aspect of our wedding and I’m learning that recycled paper CAN be pretty! Thanks for the tutorial – I’m going to try my hand at one of these today!
