Handmade embossing folder

Welcome again,


Today I would like to present how to create your own embossing folder. You can use that idea to create nice background made using various dies.

I decided to make a card in C&S style where main theme will be a snowflake background.

First I had to plan the size of the folder and then prepare it. Next I cut lot of snowflake dies from kraft paper. I stuck few snowflakes on the base and then I made it thick by adding 4 additional snowflakes on top of each snowflake. This way I created embossing folder made of paper dies.




I embossed the card on my own custom designed embossing folder!





Finally I looked at the paper I used for cutting snowflake dies and decided to recycle that and make another card. And that’s how the other card was done where main theme is kraft paper and red bow.




Hope you find ‘embossing folder’ trick useful,
