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?
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.
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 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!
Since, I could not find the blank embossing folders ANYWHERE and like to create my own designs, I am having them manufactured. I should be getting my sample this week and if everything looks good, I will begin selling them at the beginning of October in my shop:
Thanks for the enabling, everyone. I just bought a kit that includes the blank folder plus two packages of refill sheets from the well-known auction site :>) The kits have been discontinued in the sb sites that I checked.
I know it’s been years since anyone has posted to this thread but I thought I’d just for anyone still looking is, Amazon sells clear plastic placemats that look like they work just as well for making your own folders. I ordered some to see how it works. I’ll let you know! You get 4 for $12
