Default Using Cuttlebug folders in original Sizzix

I have the original red Sizzix machine. I was wondering if I could use the large Cuttlebug embossing folders in that? I have used Cuttlebug dies and the small embossing folders but wasnt sure about the bigger ones.

Also can you use Nestabilities in the original Sizzix?

I have the old red sizzix myself and it works great for the A2 size embossing folders. You just need to use the Sizzix System Converter. No additional "sandwich" needed.

I have about 26 sets of nestabilities and they work great in "old red" too. You will need to figure out the right "sandwich" though to get it to cut/emboss. In fact you can use just about any die in that machine, BUT, because the opening of the old red sizzix is only about 4" wide, you can not use any of the Bigz dies that SU or Sizzix sells because they are wider than that.
