About Sizzix Thinlits Dies

The great thing about these classic Sizzix Thinlits dies is that they can be used for 3 unique functions: you can stencil, emboss, and cut with these wafer thin, chemical-etched dies. You can save big when you buy Thinlits die sets online from CraftDirect.com, your #1 source for Sizzix dies. Thinlits are great for making projects with intricate details.

How to Use Thinlits

As mentioned, you can use Sizzix Thinlits die sets for more than just cutting:

  1. In order to cut, you will need a pair of cutting pads and your Sizzix machine's standard platform. If you are using the Essentials Platform or Solo Platform & Shim, then the Extended Adapter or Solo Adapter will be required. You may have to pass your sandwich through the machine three times in order to ensure the intricate cuts are precise and complete. Using wax paper can make it easier to remove your material from the die after the cut. Having the right Sizzix accessories makes all the difference.
  2. In order to emboss with your Thinlits dies, you will need the machine's standard Platform, an Impressions pad, and a Silicone Rubber sheet.
  3. In order to stencil, place the die over desired material and apply ink or chalk to the die indentations. This technique can be used alone or to enhance embossed designs.

More often than not, you will use the Thinlits for cutting, but it's nice to have other options.

One very fun product line you will find among our collection of Sizzix Thinlits dies is the Drop-ins which are designed by the one and only Stephanie Barnard. There are card bases and drop-in elements that will allow you to change out different themes to match the reason for the card.
