I'm not terribly familiar with machines and diecuts and folders, but saw a folder on eBay that would be just perfect for a project, and I wondered if it can be used without a machine?

If you have a rolling pin you can use it. Beware, the embossing folder will curl...

there are some embossing plates that are made to be used without machines... they are called fiskars texture plates. you use an embossing tool to use them. i've used them before and they are nice, but the best embossing comes from using a machine... just get better results.

Ah, yes, I think I've seen those Fiskars plates.
Thank you for the info!

i had a set, but i prefer to have a more crisp embossing... so i'm looking into some of the sizzix ones, since i have both the sizzix and the side kick, i think it would work nicely for me

When I was at a weekend crop, I wanted to emboss a tree but it was too big to go through my cuttlebug. I could not find a rolling pin so I used a vodka bottle. It's probably not as crisp but you can see the tree bark.

Does every crop have a vodka bottle handy? Could that be the real reason crops are so popular? ~Judy
