Tutorial Tuesday: Making a Border Using Embossing Folders

Filed under Core Blog

Today’s Tuesday’s Tutorial comes from Lydia Jackson. Ever wonder how to use your Cuttlebug Embossing folders for a border on a layout? Keep reading…

NOTE: Remember to work from the BACK of the Core’dinations Cardstock because you will be sanding on the front of the paper.

Using a rolling pin and firm pressure, roll over the folder to create the embossed image.

Turn the cardstock over and sand:

Here is the finished layout. Isn’t that border fantastic? NOTE: Notice how Lydia overlapped the corners so you don’t have to worry about them lining up exactly. It adds to the whimsical feel of this adorable layout!

Supplies: Core’dinations Core Essentials, Cuttlebug folders from Provocraft.

  2. I had heard of using a rolling pin if you didn’t have the machine but I didn’t think of using it for borders around larger items that can’t fit!

    The whole rolling pin thing didn’t work for me. I must not be strong enough to put enough pressure. 🙁
