Make Die Cutting Easier With A Dryer Sheet
If you ever get tired of poking out those tiny little pieces from your detailed die cuts, this tip is for you. Next time you’re die cutting, begin by laying a dryer sheet, folded in half, onto your cutting plate. Place the paper and die over top as usual and run it through your machine. When you remove it, carefully peel the die cut away from the dryer sheet and watch as the scrap pieces stay stuck to the dryer sheet!
This works perfectly, but if you’re looking for a related tip, there’s another one I shared a while back about using a brush and foam pad to roll the pieces out of your die cuts.
I hope you find this as helpful as I do! If you try this and it doesn’t work quite like mine, take a look below for a couple of troubleshooting notes.
If you have problems, take a look at these ideas below for solving them.
When I remove the die cut, the dryer sheet has been cut through and it’s stuck to the back of the die cut.
This means there was too much thickness in your machine and it cut just a little too far. Try unfolding the dryer sheet and use just a single layer of it.
