Happy Birthday to ME! - Big Shot Plus
It's a behemoth! It will take dies up to 8 1/2" x 11". There are both steel rule and framelet/thinlet dies that take advantage of the larger format to make larger items, many of them related to sewing projects or boxes. Plus it can cut a larger number of smaller dies all at once.
After I tore open the plastic packaging on the Spellbinders die, my sweetie dropped by my workshop and I told him how the steel rule die could cut through a variety of materials like plastic and chipboard and.. Then I realised I had a sheet of plastic just the right size for the die, the packaging it came in!
I hadn't been super careful in breaking into the package so had a tear to work around. I had to trim the plastic to roughly 8 1/2" x 11" so it wasn't too hard to position the die to avoid the tear.
All one piece in just one pass. :)
The partial-cut scorelines put in by the die make it easy to fold the sides and bottom.
A single strip of adhesive on the tab for one side with the bottom interlocking and it was all done.
It makes a great holder for my brushes. My other cups were over-full so this is just perfect.
