A few more tips on crayon Cuttlebug embossing

Several posts back I told you of a discovery of gliding crayons over your Cuttlebug embossing to get a neat look. I wanted to show you this picture so you can get an idea of how to get the best result. Keep the "back" of whatever you are embossing in the Cuttlebug folder--in other words, open up the embossing folder after you've run it through the Cuttlebug to the side you want to emboss, but don't take it out. Having that backing will make it easier to glide your crayon over without getting a messy result. I glide my crayon over the paper in a circular motion and it seems to work best for me. I like Crayola better than Rose Art crayons because Rose Art crayons seem to come off on the paper in little chunks. The box of 24 is a quarter, so it's all good.
