Die cutting is like using a pastry cutter. A hand-operated, die cutting machine uses steel rule die shapes to cut through a wide range of materials quickly and easily.
The use of scissors takes time and patience. However, die-cutting transforms the tedious tasks of cutting numerous letters and shapes into a fast, fun and easy endeavour replicating the same perfect shape over and over again.
Sizzix® die cutting machines can die cut, emboss and texturize many materials, including cardstock, paper, construction paper, fabric, faux fur, felt, foil, heat and shrink plastic, leather, paper wood, poly foam, self-adhesive rubber (for making rubber stamps), sheet magnet, sponge, static cling vinyl and thin craft metal.
