Has anyone heard of making an embossing folder using acetate, a brass stencil, and the embossing paste?

Thanks,

Thanks for posting the absolutely fabulous tutorial!

Just curious whether quilters' template plastic would be suitable to make embossing folders. The texture and feel is very similar to the CB embossing folders. I may have to try some and see what happens.

I made one just using cardboard and a butterfly punch. Fold the cardboard in half. Punch the butterfly out of one side and glue it inside the other so it fits right into the hole of where it punched out of. Just wanted to try it with a little one before I got carried away with full card front sizes. Turned out really well and makes a nice impression.

I, too, would love to know how to do this...but when I clicked on the link it said that the file had been removed. Is it somewhere else where I can find it? If someone could send it to me that would be great also.

Many thanks!

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
the other.

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.

Thanks for putting the tutorial back up. I got a Silhouette Cameo for Christmas and am always on the lookout for anything I can learn. Thank you for sharing your knowledge.

Default One Sided Embossing Folders without a Machine

I have had decent luck with making one-sided folders and using a No More Shims mat as the top of my sandwich (I bet any soft, siliconish mat for embossing would do). I punched or cut shapes from a cereal box, then glued them to a piece of cereal box. My brick one I used Mod Podge and then covered it with a couple of coats of MP to make it slicker, but I don't think that is necessary. I also did the same with die cut alpha letters to make personalized embossed stuff, names and initials.
I used the brick one on my number 13 advent calendar box for the fireplace, and the dots for snowflakes thru the window on this one (I brayered blue on the debossed side).

It helped to spritz the CS with alcohol to get a crisper impression. You can do this with the negative cut out piece as well, if it is not too detailed an image. I just write the Big Shot sandwich on the folder. I love that you can make them any size. I am going to do one with hearts this weekend.
