Default Site to make embossing folders

I just stumble onto this amazing video for making your own embossing folders. Not only is it easy, but it does deeply embossed designs .

YouTube - ‪How to make a texture plate‬‎

When I saw this I thought Wow a person could not only make embossing designs for pennies, but they could make them any size their embossing/die cutting machine would accept.

We could embossed just corner or partial designs or entire pages.

I am sure scrapbookers would like larger embossing folders.

I don't have a Cricut, but "If" it will cut chip board they would have a gazillion designs to use .
From what I read the new Tim Holtz die cutting machine will cut chip board.

When I started stamping and wanted to get a lot of things, I found a whole bag of very small punches at a garage sale for $8. I bought them , but soon realized the images were quite small to glue on cards . Well now I have a great use for my bag of little punches Make embossing plates

That is a cool technique! Of course, I got sucked in and watched a bunch of other videos too. What did we do before YouTube?!!?

If the Cricut will NOT cut chip board then just cut 2 or 3 of the same shape glue them together and they should be the thickness of chip board.

Oh the possibilities !

I don't think she punched chipboard shapes; they were heavy cardstock. I think she said that in the video.

I thought she said heavy chipboard, that's what confused me. I'll watch it again!
Anyone tried this yet????

She says that she uses chipboard, but I think she's referring to the base piece. (She might have meant to say cardstock too.) There's no way that punch that she's using will punch through chipboard. If you look at the way the paper she's punching is bending, I doubt that's chipboard. It's probably medium- to heavy-weight cardstock. I'm definitely going to give this a try. Very cool!

Well, I tried it, and it didn't work. I even tried 2 thicknesses of heavy-weight cardstock and different mat combinations in my Big Kick. Nothing worked. When I tried shimming it, the sandwich seemed too thick to move through my BK, and I didn't want to force it for fear of breaking my machine. If anyone gets it to work, could you please tell us how you did it? Thanks.

I can only fit one rubber mat through my machine, no matter how I layer the mats. I just tried a different sandwich, and I got a little bit of an impression, but not a great one. When I have more time, I'll play with it a little more.

Kaye from the SCAL forum, discovered that magnet sheets, from Wal*Mart's craft section, make the best embossing "folders". They are 8"x5", with adhesive backing, and sold in a 2 pack. They cut very well and are thick enough to leave a nicely raised image. I used it with my Cuttlebug. One rubber mat and a thin cardboard shim worked great.

I just tried it and got gorgeous deep embossing. I have a Cuttlebug


The first time I did it I only used single punched shapes like Margaret did on the video . The embossing was not as deep as I wanted.
Then I glued "2 of each punched shape" together and then glued them on the chip board and it worked great!

Here was my sandwich from the top down

*** Note only 1 B plate is used ******
B plate
3 Card stock shims
Tan mat
chipboard embossing thingy design down on the card stock
card stock
Tan mat
A plate

Margaret only used 2 shims, but I needed 3. Try it with two shims and see if you need more. It appears tight rolling through , but it is not a problem since some of the thickness comes from the Tan mats which have a lot of normal compression . They are not rigid like cutting plates are.

Let me know how this works for you

I just did a comparison of the depth of the embossing between my home made chip board plate and a Cuttlebug embossing folder.
The Cuttlebug folder embosses deeper than the homemade one.

However, I am satisfied with the home made one because I can make any size I want and they will cost pennies to make .

Next I will try to figure out the sandwich for the Wizard. That machine has more pressure and may produce deeper embossing.

Anyone know who makes the pink punching tool this gal used in the Utube video? I have only seen those a couple times and can't recall where!

I think she was using recycled cereal box material. I noticed that when she had the punched flowers on the chipboard base before glueing down that they were a solid color. After they were glued down there was print showing on many of the flowers. Having used leftover lightweight cardboard boxes for projects, I know that they can be punched and also make excellent shims. They are less thick than regular chipboard that we buy, but definitely thicker than cardstock. I haven't tried her technique yet, but I'm going rustle around in the panty and find a near empty box of something that I can use. I'll report back with results.

I tried this once a while back. The only way I could get the impression to show up was if I misted the cardstock first. But then when it dried it was not very flat so the embossed pieces of cardstock were essentially unusable.

I just tried it with a piece of metallic gift wrap and it turned out beautiful! It appears to takes less pressure to emboss metallic paper.
It is a roll of metallic gift wrap from the Dollar Store. All of their paper is a bit on the thin side LOL
I don't have any Spellbinders metallic paper.

I don't have the tan mats either. I use a silicone cookie sheet liner (sil-pat) from the local hardware store. It's the size of a cookie sheet so you can share with 3 friends if you cut it in 4.

Oh, I've done this! I've got one "texture plate" using the retired Stampin' Up Baroque stamp that I stamped onto a cereal box and cut out. Then I wanted a texture plate with larger polka dots than what I already owned and instead of buying one, I just punched the size circles I wanted out of cereal box and glued them on and it works great!

Here's a link to the PTI forum where I posted a few pictures of the polka dot one: Papertrey Ink Forum • Login (I'd post them here but I've already deleted the pics from my computer)

Hi Cynthia!
Before I got my tan mats, I used a thin mouse pad....worked perfectly! The silicone mat idea is a good idea too!

You can also purchase rubber mats from a hardware store or home improvement store. They are a red/rust color 6" square - pack of 2. Called something like 'plumber's gasket repair kit'. Sell for around $2.50. I found them cheapest at Menards.

Wow - love this idea. Will definitely give it a try. I've got a BS so hope to get the sandwich right. I've got TONS of punches, as well as the Marvy Puncher (which works with the older punches, but not the lever punches. For chipboard substitute, someone mentioned cereal boxes - I LOVE Cheerios boxes - they seem to be heavier than alot of the others and they are always in stock at my house .
