You need to find a glue that dries to "tacky" (I use the Sailor Roller Ball Glue Pen). Put the glue onto the areas that you want to be foiled (a nice thick coat) and then let it dry for at least 20 minutes, or preferably an hour. Then lay your foil on the glued areas with the coloured side of the foil facing up towards you. Rub the foil gently with your fingers and then pull away from the paper. The foil will adhere to the areas that you have glued.
