Dryer Sheets Technique
Here is a cool technique I shared at my workshops using inexpensive dryer sheets to die cut this large butterfly which has very detailed design.  Placing one dryer sheet under your card stock when running through your Big Shot will prevent you from poking these small pieces.  Just follow these simple steps:

1.  Place your materials in the following order:

Cutting Pad (top)
Butterfly Die
Wax Paper
Card Stock
Dryer Sheet
Cutting Pad
Magnetic Platform (bottom)

2.  Run through your Big Shot machine.

3.  Carefully remove your butterfly die.  You may have to use your tweezers to find a spot so that you can easily remove your die without getting any paper stuck in your die.


Tip - I have found that dryer sheets need to be tacky to adhere these small pieces.
