Embellish your papercraft projects at the turn of a crank with these Tim Holtz Gearhead Thinlits Dies ! These dazzling decorations are designed to cut, emboss and even stencil across a single sheet of cardstock, leaving behind an intricate embellishment across your projects!
Compatible with leading die-cutting machines such as the Sizzix Big Shot and the Big Shot Plus, the Thinlits designs may require up to three passes through the machine to cut – optionally, use these dies to emboss across your materials – this may require an Impressions Pad and Silicone Rubber Sheet in order to enjoy the full effects.
To cut, simply place this die atop of a cutting base and plate, with the cutting side facing upwards – apply a single sheet of cardstock on top and add a second cutting plate. You may need to use an adapter plate instead, so be sure to check your manual before proceeding! Once you’ve assembled your sandwich, rollit through your machine. This may need twoor three passes in order to cut through effectively. To lessen the number of passes, you can also use a metal shim.
Alternatively, use this die as a stencil by placing the die atop of your paper and run an ink pad or chalk across the top. Then simply wipe it clean to use again!
