Embossing Without an Expensive Machine

Oh Internet, I'm so excited!
I randomly ended up with some of these little embossing mats.

I thought "Well I guess I could use a rolling pin?"
No, not really, it was just too much work.
So I thought for sure there would be some kind of cheap option to roll these darn things.
I turned to google to figure it out, I saw one lady spray them with water before doing the rolling pin thing (I was not sold on this idea) then I saw another person use a kitchen aid pasta maker... and unless you already have one, EXPENSIVE.
So I checked the cost of manual pasta makers and the cheapest one was about $20. OK, much better than $40+!
Well, while I was searching for the cost of the pasta makers some clay rollers came up.
I was at Michael's and saw the clay roller, I checked to see if it looked like it would be possible... so I figured I'd give it a go.
It was listed for $24.99, and I had a 40% coupon. So I got it for $14.99

I got it home and anchored it down...
Here Goes!
 I had to help it a little by moving the plastic thing forward...
 Sweet sweet victory.
So happy!

So folks, yes, you CAN use a clay roller for paper embossing.
