Illustrated Craft Tutorial - How to Use the Double Do® XL Diecutter and Embossing Machine with Cuttlebug™ Embossing Folders

The Double Do® XL is perfect for the larger templates that are up until 15 cm or 6 inches wide.

The Cuttlebug™ Embossing Folders work excellent with the Double Do®. When done correctly, the images are perfect and have a lot of dimension. It is best to use a slightly heavier cardstock but almost every type of cardstock or paper works great, actually.

2. First you need to become familiar with the Cuttlebug Folders if you have not used them before. These come in various sets - either large background folders or small folders for individual images. Each folder is in 2 halves - a positive and a negative half. Each half gets embossed onto the paper from both sides to guarantee a clear and deep embossed image.

7. Insert now this “sandwich into the front of the machine. Secure the machine to the table by pulling the small left lever until the machine adheres itself to the underground. This underground should be smooth and flat.Now pull the lever on the right side towards you so that it starts to pull the “sandwich” through the machine. Continue turning the lever until the “sandwich” is completely through. You will need to hold the top of the machine with your second hand if necessary to help.
