How to Make Embossing Folders for Cuttlebug

Here is something that you will see in the Cricut A to Z DVD – but I wanted to give a different version of it on my website as a helpful resource!  I love making my own Cuttlebug Embossing folders.  They are so fun and overall easy.  You can re-use the A-2 folder kits from Provo Craft for the Cricut as many times as you would like by following this fun 2 part instructional video :)

  22. maricella cruz says:

    I love this video Thanks Meg for sharing now i want the Cuttle more then ever

  23. Casey says:

    Thanks for sharing. I’ve heard of this before, but havent tried it because it seemed very timing consuming. But, I had a thought while watching you. If you used transfer tape or contact paper to separate your images, it might be a little easier. I will have to try that. Thanks again. i love your videos!

  24. Julie Westerfield says:

    That is so cool. Thanks for sharing that technique. I always learn something new when I visit your site.

  25. Sharon Harrison says:

    I learn so much from you every time I visit your site. I have been telling all my scrapbooking friends about it too. Thanks so much!

  26. Debby says:

    Oh I love this, great way to make more embossing folders of patterns you want that you can’t get otherwise. Thanks for showing us how to do this. I don’t have a cuddlebug either but I do have the sizzix which works the same for doing this.

  27. josie says:

    very cool!!!!! you made it look so easy….thanks

  28. Carmen Lucero says:

    Thanks Meg, after seeing you do it I can tell it takes a lot of time, but I’m willing to try. Casey, one of your commentators, suggested contact paper to transfer the negative, I’ll have to give that a try and also look for it in the video to find out how you can use the folder again.

    Great video!


  29. Ann G says:

    What great ideas thanks.

  30. Ramona says:

    Thanks for the video on making your own cuttlebug embossing folders

  31. Elizabeth says:

    This is great, I had tried using the material that you buy for this and had no luck with it, will give this a try tonight. Thanks for all the great tips.

  32. Megan, I love your ideas! One question…When moving the inner circles could you have glued a thin piece of paper to the inner circles (while they were still on the mat), let them dry and then move them in their entirety? Just wondering!
