Die Cutting and Die Cuts

Die cutting is just like using a cookie cutter. A hand-operated, die cutting machine uses steel rule die shapes to cut through a wide range of materials quickly and easily. Typically paper is cut but fabric, felt or any other crafty material can usually be cut. It makes cutting intricate shapes easy and quick. I have purchased a cuttlebug machine and have only a few ‘dies’. Animals, party theme and a flourish. Here is a card of the animals I used to make a congratulations card for friends of ours who had twins.
