Instructions for Homemade Border Embossing Folders

Here goes this is a first for me. I hope you all will understand these! he he
List of supplies you will need:
Plastic your cricut cartridges came in
Cricut machine
Card Stock ( I used 110 weight card stock)
design cartridge your choice (I used Speaking of Winter)

Make the border any size you like, cut your plastic and make the folder the size of the border, I cut my plastic after I cut my border so I would be sure to cut it the right size! Didn't want to waste my plastic! lol

Note: When you are laying the trees in the cutouts in the border make sure they match up with it and add the adhesive to the side of the tree that is up facing you this will let them adhere to the opposite side of the folder. Oh lord I hope I have explained this good enough for you all!

What a great recycling tip. I never thought of using plastic. I have made some out of cardstock mounted on cardstock. But the plastic is a much better idea. Thanks
