I’m trying to imagine this project out before Christmas when apparently Santa is bringing me a Cricut. 🙂
Could you use the cricut stamping material to create an acrylic stamp to use in the cuttlebug embossing folder and then just use a brayer to ink it as well as emboss it, thus letterpress?
Has anyone tried that before?
I think about these things because I am cheap. 🙂
One step even more towards being cheap, I saw a YouTube video where instead of having the cuttlebug machine, the person actually used a simple rolling pin to apply the pressure…

I thought about doing the same thing. Of course, I haven’t taken my Circuit out of its box yet and I’ve had it for months. It seems like it should work.

It is definitely possible. I remember reading a tutorial about how to do it using plates that the author had ordered from Boxcar Press – I don’t remember where, but some googling should turn it up. She had rigged up a backing out of cork or something similar.

Not sure if that will work, I haven’t used Cricut before BUT I know there is a new letterpress component available, unfortunately it has gotten pretty poor working reviews 🙁

In theory, it sounds like it should work!!! I bought my cricut at Wal-mart a few days ago, but I can’t have it til Christmas cause it’s a present from my grandmother.
