Cricut Embossing Folder Instructions:
Cut 2 pieces of chipboard of the same size.
Choose the shape you want for your embossed image.
Cut it out using heavy cardstock.
Glue the leftover piece with the hole where the image
was cut, to one of the chipboard pieces, about 1/4" smaller than the chipboard.
Next, take the cutout pieced and fit it back into the spot it came out of.
Put glue on the top side and press the second piece on top of that. Let it dry.
Separate the two sides.
Add the little pieces that were left over from
your cutout image. Fit those into their spaces.
Put glue on them and press the other folder to it
again. You should end up with a hole with tiny
bits on one side, and the actual diecut image on
Using some clear packing tape, cover the front
and back of the two pieces with one piece of tape
so that it creates a hinge.
This is the video I watched to write down the steps above.
