What is die cutting?

Die cutting is the process of mass-cutting or embossing a piece of material using a mold called die by applying pressure and create a papercraft. Once you die cut your material you get either a cut or an embossed shape to add to your project as a cover or an additional decorative element.

What is exactly a die-cut?

A die is a metallic shape whose edges are bevelled and sharpened so that, if you apply pressure on it upon a piece of paper, the die will cut the sheet; if you use something thick, like leather, the die will do what we call an embossing, which is leaving a 3D mark. There are many kinds of die, some are magnetic, and others would need a methacrylate base to hold still while passing through the die-cutting machine.

How does the die-cutting machine work?

The die-cutting machine creates a craft shape using pressure, a basic and simple process. The die is placed upon the material you want to cut, then between two plates, just like a sandwich. Then, the whole is placed on the machine which passes the sandwich between two rolls applying pressure. You save time and your repetitive patterns look perfectly professionally cut. The differences between die cutting machines mainly reside on the dimensions of the cut each machine offers and whether it’s manual or powered by electricity. You can get a Sizzix, a Cricut, a Silhouette, etc.

Which materials can you die-cut?

You can use a ton of scrapbooking material, depending on the thickness of your project. Paper, cardboard, thin chipboard, fabric, felt, canvas, EVA foam, fiberboard, leather, acetate, thin metallic sheet, MDF, etc.

What else can I do with the die-cuts?

Each scrap machine usually also offer a series of accessories to enhance or prolong your cutting pattern. Platforms, silicone rubber mat, etc. We have everything you may think of.
