How to make a texture plate

I was just sitting around playing with chipboard from a cereal box and a piece of thick chipboard form Grafix that I purchased from HH, and this is what I came up with. I used a punch to make it, but you can use anything from just cutting it out freehand to using your Cricut.


  1. Well aren't you just miss creativity!!! What a fabulous idea! That's what I call thinking outside the cricut!!! LOL
    Thanks for sharing this great idea with us!

  2. Thanks so much for sharing, this is such a great idea. I love it. I am going to have to try this.

  3. Now how smart is this and why didn't someone think of it sooner. Girlie, you have opened a whole new world of embossing for me with the cuttlebug. Thank you so much!! I have been looking through your blog and you have a lot of really nice projects. I have subscribed and I will be back!! Hugs, Pam

  4. Hi Margaret! Love the tutorial! I was just thinking to myself today that I could use a couple new embossing folders and now I know how to make my own! Thank you for posting this video :-)
