Small progress report:
Ok, my foil was delivered to the wrong house, but the person who go it took it to us.
Here are pictures of all my materials, and a couple different types of paper with the same pattern printed on them (literally just googled 'pattern' haha) so I'm going to test which one works the best with the foil, and then it's pretty much off to the races.
Also, @ ecl, how should I cut the text block out of the book... I feel so clueless about this project lol!
