If you’ve done much cardmaking or scrapbooking, it is likely that you’ve wondered how to attach small die cuts to your projects. There are a few ways to do this, but I have a new favorite option using Stampin Up Adhesive Sheets, a new product in this year’s annual catalog. See that detailed flower die cut on the card below? I used Adhesive Sheets to turn it into a big sticker. Win!
How To Attach Small Die Cuts…My Old Way
Back in the olden days, just a few weeks ago, my go-to method for attaching detailed die cuts was to place some Multipurpose Glue onto a silicone craft sheet, and use a sponge to apply just a very thin layer to the back of the die cut. You can see this technique in this video.
I may still choose to use this method in some cases, but now that Adhesive Sheets are here, I’ll be using them the majority of the time.
About Stampin Up Adhesive Sheets
Adhesive sheets are just that – a thin layer of adhesive between two layers of paper backing. They come in sheets that measure 6″ x 12″ with 12 of these included in one pack for a cost of $10.00. For the amount of headache they will save, this is totally worth it!
How To Attach Small Die Cuts Using Stampin Up Adhesive Sheets
You’ll first need to trim the paper you’re planning to die cut to the appropriate size for the die. Next, you’ll need a piece of Adhesive Sheet trimmed just slightly smaller than the size of the paper. Look at the photo above and the piece of Adhesive Sheet that I trimmed down. Do you see that there is a small slit in the paper backing towards the left side? It’s important to keep one of these slits in the area you will be using to make it easier to remove the paper backing.
Next, remove the paper backing and place the adhesive side against the backside of the paper that you plan to die cut. Die cut the paper as normal. Remove the paper backing from your die cut, and stick it to your project just like a sticker. So easy!
Watch along in the video below as I show how to use adhesive sheets.
