Your tips & ad­vice...

We love shar­ing tips on our Face­book page. Re­cently we were dis­cussing die-cut­ting, and the best way to re­move the pa­per waste from in­tri­cate die-cuts or for at­tach­ing them to your cards. Here’s some of your top ad­vice and handy hints...

Cardmaking and Papercraft - - Crafter’s Q&a -

I have a dual-ended pokey tool with a roller brush at the other end; it’s per­fect for get­ting those teeny, tiny pieces out of the die-cut card quickly and ef­fort­lessly. Kris­tine Wright ŅI some­times pop a lit­tle spot of glue onto my glass mat and then dip the in­tri­cate die onto it. It’s eas­ier than try­ing to dab dots of glue straight onto the die-cut from the bot­tle. Ali­son Bent­ley ŅI of­ten use a piece of thin grease­proof pa­per first with in­tri­cate dies, as it helps the die-cuts to pop out a lot eas­ier. Va­lerie Mann ŅI don’t have a proper pokey tool, so I use cock­tail sticks. They work re­ally well and it doesn’t mat­ter if I mis­place one. Kay Mitchell ŅI use a pokey tool and take my time!
