General Information

Metal dies which will work with many different die cutting machines. An amazing selection of die shapes to make all your paper crafting projects so much easier. No more cutting out by hand, no more ragged edges! Using dies gives you complete control over the shape that you are cutting giving repeatability so the shape will be the same time after time.
Will cut all grades of paper and card up to approximately 300gsm. Simple die shapes can also be used to cut fabric for sewing projects, metal foils, thin leathers etc. So many different materials can be cut for all your crafting products.
There are no sharp edges on these dies so can be handled by children. It is the pressure created by the mechanism in the machine which forces the die to cut through the paper/card/fabric etc.
Follow the instructions that come with your machine or with the dies so that you use the correct combination of cutting plates for optimum cutting conditions.
By changing the plate combination and inserting a rubber embossing mat, once the shape has been cut, running the die back through the machine will produce and embossed edge to add more detail too the  shape you have cut.
Another use for the die is to use it as a stencil. Once the shape has been cut, leaving the cut shape in the die, apply ink with some "cut and dry" foam or a blending tool to add highlights to the shape.
