3D Paper Tricks Embossing Folders Tutorial

Hi everyone!

Many of you have been asking for a closer look at our popular Paper Tricks embossing folders for the Cuttlebug. Today we’re going to walk you through the steps to score and fold each of these fancy rosettes and pleated borders so you can create beautiful projects and party décor!

If you missed out on getting Paper Tricks in January, this blog post is perfect timing because they are now back in stock on hsn.com: http://bit.ly/papertricks. Keep in mind that you will need one 6×13 A plate (http://shrsl.com/?~7vpj) and two 6×13 B plates (http://shrsl.com/?~7vpk) to use this set.


These folders make the days of hand scoring feel so far away, and we absolutely love using them. Here’s a look at some more projects we created with this collection.


Check back next Tuesday for an exclusive sneak peek of what’s coming up on HSN in March. We have SO much to share with you!

We got in the Cricut Everywhere spirit yesterday by grabbing a bite to eat at the famous Varsity restaurant in Atlanta and then swinging by the iconic Fox Theatre. It is so fun to get out and get inspired by the city I love, and I hope this new machine excites everyone to do the same.
