How to Use Craft Dies

Any kind of die project will require an automatic or hand-cranked die-cutting/embossing machine to cut. All you have to do is make a sandwich out of your die, your cardstock or other material and two cutting pads. Press the sandwich by running it through your die-cutter.

Be sure that your machine is compatible in terms of size. Some die-cutting dies are huge in terms of length and or width, while others are wafer-thin and require extra accessories for a clean cut. If you have any questions about which products and accessories go together, please don't hesitate to contact us.
