It's Your Day!
Monday, April 29, 2013
I've always liked the Floral Ovals die, but often hesitated to use it because I always had to clean out the little pieces that got stuck in the die, but not this time. I've got a good tip for you when using intricate dies that will keep pieces from getting stuck inside the die and will also immediately release the entire die cut easily: Save the poly bags that are in cereal boxes and add them to your die cutting sandwich between the paper and the die. You might be able to do this with just one layer of the poly, but since I didn't get all the crumbs out of the bag first, I just flattened it, using a double layer. I've been using regular wax paper, sometime even four layers, and while it does help some, it's not nearly as good as the cereal bags. Give it a try. I think you'll soon be eating a lot more cereal! ;)
Thanks for stopping by, and have a fab week!
