About this deal

One A2 insert will hold eight A2 embossing folders or dies; one 2" x 2" insert will hold 24 2" x 2" dies or 2" x 2. That Anna Griffin video I embedded above gives a great tip for helping your Plates to look their best. While you can use your Cricut Explore or Maker to emboss (just check out this tutorial by Clever Someday to find out how), embossing with the Cuttlebug is very straightforward. I have several friends who love theirs, and they are able to use the cutting plates from other machines (ie Sizzix and QuicKutz).

You will need to contact the manufacturer of the machine to ask if their machine is compatible with Cricut Cuttlebug dies and embossing folders, and get suggestions for best results when using Cricut Cuttlebug dies and embossing folders with their machines. The ratings/reviews displayed here may not be representative of every listing on this page, or of every review for these listings. Folder Names: Starting in the spring of 2012, the names of new embossing folders are screen-printed directly on the folders for easy identification. To use the Cuttlebug, you place it on a flat surface and simultaneously open both sides so they are parallel with your table. The Cuttlebug is a versatile cutting and embossing machine and is useful for scrapbooking, paper crafts and card crafts.This is not really a problem, but it’s misleading to the eye when you’re trying to line up the paper and embossing folder. Unlike the electronic machines, though, the Cuttlebug doesn’t come with materials for your first project. Ink is rubbed into the marks that have been created on the surface of the acrylic, then the excess ink is rubbed off. The only Cricut machine designed to emboss, the Cricut Cuttlebug gives professional-looking results with clean, crisp cuts and deep, even embossing.

You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice. The Cuttlebug instruction booklet does not mention them by brand name, but they clearly describe how to use the plates and materials from other companies.

Use the three different spacer plates available for the Cricut Cuttlebug to emboss everything from thin tissue to heavier weight leather. The marker pen hardly showed up black on black, and because the acrylic is opaque rather than clear, I couldn’t place my drawing behind and trace through, so I wasn’t sure how accurate I was being, and I was working in reverse too.
