This little tool will totally change the way you look at your intricate Big Shot Dies. You know, the ones that have all those teeny, tiny little pieces that stay in the die once you’ve rolled your paper through your Big Shot Die Cutting Machine.
This amazing new tool from the Stampin’ Up! Handmade From the Heart Occasions Catalog 2016, is something you will definitely want to own. Here’s how it works:
Cut out your paper with your framelits/thinlits die using the Big Shot as you normally would. Lay the cut paper, with the die still embedded in it, on the foam pad, with the die side up. Run the brush several times over the die’s surface. When you pick up your piece, the die will peel easily off and all the small bits of paper will fall right out. No more poking with your paper piercing tool or using waxed paper!
One TIP: Use gentle pressure when rolling the brush. You may have to run it over the die several times, but with the lighter touch you’re less likely to poke through thin paper and ruin your piece.
