Creating with a Big Shot

The Sizzix Big Shot is a fun way to improve your craft projects, whether you want to cut out intricate designs or add texture to your paper project. It's perfect for beginners who are just starting out and for experienced crafters as well.

  • Die Cutting - In order to die cut with your Big Shot machines, you need to employ the use of Sizzix dies. The process is rather simple, yet effective. You make a sandwich with the dies, your material, and two cutting pads (the bread of the sandwich) and then run it through your Big Shot machine. Remember that all Big Shots make big cuts, but if you need to make abnormally large cuts, try the Sizzix Big Shot Pro machine.
  • Embossing - A very popular function on the Sizzix Big Shot machine is its ability to emboss. Just like with die cutting, to emboss you need to make a sandwich with cutting pads and material, but in this case you use a Sizzix folder in lieu of a die. Adding dimension to your paper crafts can really make them stand out.

The right Sizzix accessories will make all the difference in your projects in terms of convenience, efficiency, and results. Use fresh cutting pads and the proper adapters, base trays, platforms, etc. for precision. Learn more about the process and get inspiration from our Sizzix booklets.

Pro tip: you can emboss with Thinlits dies if you use an Impressions pad and a Silicone Rubber sheet.
