How To Use Cuttlebug Embossing Plus Folders In The Big Shot Pro Machine!

I have had a few of you ask how to use the Cuttlebug Embossing Plus Folders in other machines besides the Cuttlebug, so today I thought I would share with you how to use these folders in the Sizzix Big Shot Pro Machine, since it is a newer machine.

First of all, you will need to have purchased item 657435-Big Shot Pro Solo Platform, Shim & Wafer Thin Die Adapter. Click HERE if you do not have this item already. You can purchase it on our website for $34.99 (Retail is $39.99). Unfortunately, the coupon is not valid on Sizzix items at this time. You will also need an extra 656253-Cutting Pad Big Shot Pro Standard which are sold in a 2 pk HERE for $20.99 (Retail $24.99)

You will need to place the Adapter Pad, which was included in your machine, on the bottom of your sliding tray. Then make the remainder of your sandwich using the following:

Solo Platform

Cutting Pad

Cuttlebug Embossing Plus Folder with paper or card stock inserted

Cutting Pad

Roll through your machine. Remember to NEVER force anything through your machine!

Voila! you will have a beautifully cut and embossed image! I hope this helps with your future projects! Here’s the video!

Thanks and Happy Scrappin’!

    Thanks Carrie! this is really helpful!

  • YES extremely helpful. I have really been interested in the Big Shot PRO machine. I know it is a fairly new machine by Sizzix, but it seems big enough to do the projects I want with 12×12 paper. Thanks Carrie for the demo. Please do more of these on the Pro machine using Spellbinders dies too! –Jany

  • Thanks Carrie! Very nice demos on the Big Shot PRO. What a great die and emboss tool.

  • Kathy

    Thank you for the tutorial for the Big Shot Pro, I have found it very helpful………….. I hope you do some more tutorials with the Pro………. Happy Crafting

  • Chris Muir

    Thank you so much for the Tutorials. I have purchased a big shot pro but have been struggling to understand what else I needed to make thin dies work. I would love it if you could do a spellbinders tutorial. You have explained it so clearly and helped save my sanity.

  • We do have a tutorial with using Spellbinders dies in the Big Shot pro which you can find on our YouTube channel. I hope this will help you! You will need to purchase item 657435 Big Shot Pro Solo Platform, Shim & Wafer Thin Die Adapter in order to use wafer thin dies, embossing folders, Sizzlits and Cuttlebug dies. You can find this on our site under Sizzix Accessories.

  • Chris Muir

    Thank you so much for your help. Looking forward to being able to use my big shot pro with my new dies.

  • Sue

    Thank you so much, I have had my Big Shot Pro for a 4 months now and haven’t actually managed to do anything on it for fear of breaking it! I can now emboss using my Cuttlebug dies and you have given me the confidence to try cutting etc.
    I thank my lucky stars that I have the internet at my fingertips and thank them again for people like you who are so kind and thoughtful and take the time to put the instructions on the web!
    Thank you again so very much.

    Kind regards,


  • So glad we could help give you the confidence in your Pro machine! It is a fabulous machine that you can use with most manufacturer dies, embossing folders etc., so hopefully you will take advantage of what this machine is capable of so you can get the ultimate pleasure of using it.
