Default Pasta Machine Embossing with CB Folders

Had one of those EUREKA moments when I saw my lonely pasta machine setting there unused since I haven't done any polymer clay in ages. Ran a Cuttlebug embossing folder thru it on the 6 setting (Atlas machine) and it worked perfectly. You need to guide it out and forward as it passes thru but worked just like the Cuttlebug and one heck of a lot cheaper. Have seen them for around $14 in stores. Also ran a brass stencil thru on the 6 setting with layer ONE a piece of fun foam, layer TWO cardstock and layer THREE the brass stencil--also worked great but will put a curve in the stencil--since I rarely use them because of the labor involved figured at least this way I would get some good out of them. They do straighten out and doesn't seem to be any worse for the wear. I wouldn't recommend trying the cutting dies though, but for embossing is works fantastic.
