I'm currently putting together the Candy Ho Ho Ho gift tag. When I tried to emboss the red cardstock using the swirls folder I found that the tag will not fit into the folder, so instead I just reposition the tag in the folder and ran it through the embossing machine a second time. Did anybody else have the same problem? (seeing that most of the embossing will be covered up by the Ho Ho Ho tag I didn't have a big problem having a clean cut continous image.) Also what is an easy way to add the Stickles to the little stripes on the Ho Ho Ho word? I thought maybe using a paint brush or a toothpick to brush the stickles on the words. Any other ideas on how to add stickles to a small area? Thank You!

You've got the right idea for embossing the tag! You can definitely flip it over and just dry emboss it twice. As far as the Stickles go, we just squeezed very lightly and used the tip of the bottle to spread the Stickles on the stripes. You could most definitely use a paint brush or even a toothpick to create a light layer of Stickles on the tag as well. Hope this helps!
