Provo craft used to make blank embossing folders but I cannot find them anymore. Does anyone know where I can find them now?

Your help is greatly appreciated.

Perhaps I'm missing something here, but help me understand. Embossing folders have a raised pattern on them which transfers to paper when run thru the machines. Thus, the "embossing". What purpose would a blank embossing folder have? If it's blank, it won't leave any type of impression on paper, so the question remains, why would one bother?

Ladies, ladies...

you use them to make your OWN embossing folder designs.

Do I hafta explain EVERYthing to you, Darla?!

It looks like they can still be ordered from the Cricut site.

I know I saw them at J's once.

you can make your own with all kinds of things, even cereal boxes! Cut some #@$$ out of thick cardboard/stock with a your Cricut or whatever- then make a 'folder' and glue the 3D pieces in it- Then use it as an embossing folder.

Thank you to all of you for your responses.

Hey Design guy;) Cricut offers only the embossing sheets but discontinued the folders. I am not sure why they did. Regardless, I have tried the cereal box/cardboard route and the impression is still not as great as you get from an embossing folder.

I guess I might have to try to create one myself

Thanks again!!

Hmmm - that's why Kory is a guru and I'm only a diva! With all the bazillion embossing folders out there, I can't imagine making my own! Can you spell L*A*Z*Y? Ow! My head hurts.

I truly love embossing folders, and have like a gazillion of them, but I also cannot imagine making my own! Just like I don't want to make my own embellishments or paper or anything else like that! I don't know if it's because I'm lazy or because there are so many great products already available I'd rather spend my time doing other creative stuff.

Darla...that's why you're artsy and I'm nit-picky or tedious or something :>) The things you do don't sound the least bit interesting to me, but I enjoy seeing them in your gallery, but I love to make my own embellishments, flowers or anything else that you wouldn't like to do lol Not that it keeps me from buying all those things also, but I use what I make and get to enjoy looking at the things I buy

I knew about making embossing folders, but haven't tried it yet. I also bought stencil material for the Cameo to make my own stencils, but haven't used it yet. Ditto the vinyl and the glass embossing stuff. OK...I'm a complete craft failure...except I buy things great!

I think there are too many Darla's on this forum. If I remember correctly, the first person to comment is also a Darla. I'm bowing out of this one!

Sorry, Darla (dwelch), I forgot you were a Darla :>) The "other Darla" (chocolateaxel) and I are complete opposites on most things...but still friends lol

LOL! It's so rare that I ever meet anyone with the same name as me, I always forget that you're a "Darla" too, dwelch!
