Organizing your Cuttlebug embossing folders

Pin It!

This tutorial will show how I organize my embossing folders. I have a lot and love to use them for, scrapbook pages, home dec, etc. It is a quick and easy way to referance waht you have and how it will look in your project. Much easier than looking at the folder itself. Also, if you have the Tags, Bags, Boxes & More cartridge from Cricut you can use the file I included that has 4 tags on one 12 X 12 page all perfectly sized for you.

Thank you for sharing this idea with me. I spend more time looking for items than I do playing with them.

I am going to try this. I have the cart and have not used it. Now it can pay for it's self.

Huge thanks for this. I posted a link to it on the Cuttlebug list I own. Our members love it so you should get lots of hits from them! I don't have a Cricut but its easy to make my own tags. Also great way to use up scrap paper. I made similar tags for my inks but never thought of doing it with embossing folders.

great idea. I would love to know how you also organize the box that you have all the folders in.

Great idea - thanks for sharing the .cut file, too! Where do you find the big rings? I've been looking all over for those for something else.

Hi Christie, I cannot seem to view your video on organizing your embossing folders. I can view your other ones but just not this!!

I can't get the link to upload. What size did you make each tag? I have a gypsy so I will be using that to make the tags. got the paper and ready to go.

Thanks for sharing,

Would you let me know if that's OK?

I am just starting out with a die cut & embossing machine & LOVE this idea!!!
Could you please share where to purchase the papers that you use? & Thank you for the cut file for the tag!!

Girrrrl!!! I love this idea! I think I'm going to do this for my clear stamps too! I've been struggling with having them packed away in a box where I can't see them and trying to think of a new storage for them. Having an index is just brilliant! I wish I had as many embossing folders as you! I do have a few, so I think it'd be fun to make these. I JUST LOVE THIS IDEA! THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THE TUTORIAL! :)
