steps to emboss a wood sheet

  1. Cut a wood sheet slightly larger than you will need
  2. Wet down the wood sheet with water using a water spray bottle. Allow the water to soak in.
  3. Place the damp wood sheet into the embossing folder. If the sheet is curled, gently un-curl and hold it in place while closing the embossing folder.
  4. Run the embossing folder through an embossing/die cutting machine using the manufactured suggested plate sandwich.
  5. Remove the embossed wood sheet from the folder and heat dry as necessary.
  6. Use the completed embossed wood sheet in your project!
