How to Use the Sizzix Big Shot Plus Switch:
To use the Sizzix Big Shot Plus Switch Machine with a steel rule die, place the die between a pair of cutting pads with the paper face down over the part of the die design you would like to cut. If needed, use washi tape or masking tape to secure the paper in place to get perfect placement of your paper. Set the die and pad "sandwich" on the cutting path of the Big Shot Plus Switch Machine and push the electric feed button on top of the machine.
To use the Sizzix Big Shot Switch Plus Machine with a thin metal die, you'll need to use the included Big Shot Switch Plus Platform with adapter A or the Sizzix Magnetic Platform (sold separately), as well as a pair of cutting pads that are included in the starter kit. To create your die cutting "sandwich", begin by placing the platform on the bottom with the adapter on top of it. Next, place the first cutting pad on top of the stack. Then place your paper right side up on top of the cutting pad. Place the thin metal die on top of the paper, with the cutting edge down. Finish the sandwich by placing the second cutting pad on top. Set the die and Sizzix pads "sandwich" on the cutting path of the Big Shot Switch Plus machine and press the electric feed button on top of the machine and the sandwich should slide smoothly through the machine.
TIP: The Sizzix Big Shot Switch Plus machine's polycarbonate plastic cutting pads can make loud creaking, cracking, and snapping noises while advancing through the machine that may sound alarming. Do not panic if your machine makes these noises while cutting. This is a normal part of machine operation and the Sizzix pads and machine are designed to withstand the pressures of cutting.
If you are not yet sold on this amazing product, it will not be long before you are. There are so many extras included with the starter kit to get you started, plus you can use all the dies and embossing folders in your stash, so nothing new to buy. This machine is sleek, modern, easy to use with so many capabilities, it will be a dream to work with and will enhance all your creative projects to the next level!
So many things to like about this machine! Large platform with auto start, after cutting it will hold the sandwich until you remove it, no worries about standing there to "catch" it when it comes out the other side. I like that I can use any of my Sizzix platforms and plates, my 6" sandwich works with this machine so I can save the larger plates for larger projects. It's much quieter than my other electronic machines. The only negative for me is the power cord has a brick in the middle where it plugs into the machine and the wall, this is a personal preference, I don't like big chunky bricks on my cords.
I'm in love with this machine! It makes cutting intricate die so much easier. Cuts like butter. The design of the machine is very sleek. I use a Big Shot Plus on a daily basis and so the Switch sure is a space saver!
From what Iâ€™ve already experienced with my machine I love it. The versatility is wonderful because if you already have a Big Shot you can use your smaller plates on it saving your bigger plates for the big dies. Unlike the Gemini this machine allows you to use your old steel rule dies on it which is a big plus for me since I have quite a few I still use. The machine runs smooth and quiet and I love the pink color, it is bright and cheerful. The only negative Iâ€™ve found, I wish it had a handle on the top to carry it with. Thank you Sizzix I hope to enjoy my machine for a long time to come.
Sizzix has done a really great job with this machine! The pressure is perfect for getting a great cut every time. I love the wider opening and can't wait to see what dies they might create to take advantage of that! The color of the Cherry Blossom pink machine is truly beautiful too! Shipping was fast and the machine arrived in mint condition!

Recently purchased one, had to return it and immediately got on your list to repurchase it. Great tool especially for anyone that has a shoulder or problems with hand and arm strength. Love the design and what it can do.
