My sandwich, from the bottom up:
- magnetic platform
- cutting plate
- 1 dryer sheet
- card stock
- double layer of waxed paper
- thinlit die
- cutting plate
The tension on each Big Shot varies from others. You must get to know your own Big Shot and whether or not you need more than 1 dryer sheet or shim to help cut cleanly. Never force anything through your Big Shot. You could seriously damage it.
- Remove your top cutting plate and pull up the waxed paper.
- The dies will come up, too.
- Gently pull your butterflies from the CS.
- Almost all the pieces will stick to the dryer sheet!
- Flick your fingers over any remaining pieces and they'll pop right out.
One bit of sad news:
Stampin' Up! is really suffering with backorders because of a dock strike. It has created a royal mess out of shipping. So many people have wanted these dies that they've had to take them offline temporarily so they wouldn't create a mess of backorders. Be patient and they will be back. In the meantime, if you have any other dies with intricate cutting, such as the butterflies, try this technique to help you have an easier time of it. I have used it with our gorgeous Darling Doily Thinlit and it works great!
