With its 9” wide cutting path, you can use the Big Shot Plus with everything from large 9"-wide plastic-backed dies to the smallest thin metal dies. For more efficient cutting, use the Big Shot Plus’s large cutting area to cut multiple smaller dies in a single cutting pass! And of course the Big Shot Plus will also emboss, score and crease as well (accessories may be required for these tasks).

Use this machine with thousands of thin metal dies (such as Sizzix Thinlit and Sizzix Framelit) and steel rule Sizzix dies, as well as a huge selection of Sizzix embossing folders. The Sizzix Big Shot Plus cuts and embosses many different materials, such as paper, vellum, fabric, chipboard, and cork to make your creative vision a reality.

The Big Shot Plus Machine and accessories will also work with other brands' dies and embossing tools, including being able to take letter sheet sized embossing folders available from several brands, so this machine opens up a world of possibilities! In order to ensure compatibility, make sure to check machine and accessory requirements.

The diagrams on the included Big Shot Plus Platform offer easy guidelines about how to make the perfect Sizzix sandwich, or you can refer to the Sizzix Sandwich Booklet for reference.

Here’s just a sampling of what our Scrapbook.com customer reviews say for the Sizzix Big Shot Plus die cutting machine:

This is a must for anyone who has the passion for scrapbooking.” – ArtfulCraftin09

Love this machine! The additional width is great for the novice and experienced crafter!” – myscichk

I just love this bigger size big shot machine by Sizzix. It is quiet, gentler and can handle multiple projects at a time!” – Nikynik

It is a great die cutter that you won't mind having sit out in your studio! It works like a dream, you'll love it. Easy to use in comparison to other die cutters I have tried.” - pvmcg

Compatible Accessories: Big Shot Plus Premium Crease Pad, Magnetic Platform, Extended Magnetic Platform, Precision Base Plate for Wafer Thin Dies, Texturz Silicone Rubber, Texturz Impressions Pad, And much more. View all Sizzix accessories here.

How to Use the Big Shot Plus: To use the Sizzix Big Shot Plus 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 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 machine, and turn the crank to move it through the machine.

To use the Sizzix Big Shot Plus machine with a thin metal die, you'll need to use the included Big Shot Plus Platform with adaptor A (or the Sizzix Magnetic Platform) as well as a set of cutting pads, also included. 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 (in contact with the paper). 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 Plus machine, and turn the crank to move it through the machine.

For easy reference of how to assemble “sandwiches” with these cutting pads for other types of dies and Sizzix accessories, use the Sizzix Sandwich Booklet

TIP: The Sizzix Big Shot Plus machine’s polycarbonate plastic cutting pads can make loud creaking, cracking and snapping noises while being cranked through the machine that can 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.

    Best machine and Prices!!

    I have been using the Big Shot for a long time now. But as soon as I recently heard that Sizzix is going to make quite a few products for this machine, I just had to buy it! They've already released some items recently. And their stunning!!!
    I compared prices and Scrapbook.com has the best prices out there on this machine. One thing I have noticed compared to the regular Big Shot, is that it really seems to give more pressure. It just seems to cut better. idk why. And the size of the machine is perfect for your regular 8.5 x 11 inch card stock. No doubt this is my now go to machine for cutting. Its amazing once you get it home, how small the big shot is compared to it. I only wish I bought it sooner. There is a lot of crafts I couldn't make due to the small size of the Big Shot. But thats okay. I will use my small machine for cutting flowers etc. I Love my new machine very much, Thank You Scrapbook.com!

    Love the Huge Cutting Surface!

    The big selling point for me was the great big cutting platform which means I don't have to cut down a piece of paper to fit through like the Big Shot. It also means I can cut multiple dies at one time-great time saver! And I really like that the large platform isn't hinged like the multi-surface platform for the Big Shot. I'm also glad that it ISN'T magnetic! Cranks smoothly, and because of the additional weight, there isn't as much need to hold the machine in place while you crank. Over-all, I'm loving it!

    Wow, even better than expected!

    I have had a Big Shot for at least a couple years and love it but I wanted a machine that could use the wider dies and also have a bigger footprint where I could make multiple cuts. I expected the Big Shot Plus to weigh more, but it feels lighter, or at least it isn't any heavier than the regular Big Shot, so I am very pleased with that. I am also happy the wider footprint has created the unit to be more stable so I don't have to hold the top handle and can use my free hand to guide the plates in so there is no side to side wobble like I sometimes get with the Big Shot. I also love the platform where I don't fold it to the tab number I need but instead use the independent pieces to create my sandwich. This allows me to use the BS Plus in a smaller area! The regular BS platform when folded out takes up an additional 12 inches and that is a huge problem when I am attending crops where space is premium.

    Big Shot Plus-Even more awesome than I imagined!

    Although I already own an electronic cutter, I wanted to have the option of embossing as well. I ordered the 'Plus' as I didn't want to be limited on the size of the embossing folders or paper than an 'emboss only' machine would, and I am so glad I did! The results are exquisite and very detailed and more prominent than I had expected. I have not tried the die-cutting aspect, but based on the results of the embossing I have done, I have no doubt it will perform top-notch! If you're reading this, you've been pondering and putting off buying one...JUST DO IT! HIT THAT ORDER NOW BUTTON!

    Fabulous machine

    I am so happy with the Big Shot Plus machine. Being able to use the larger dies and/or being able to cut several smaller dies at once due to the larger cutting space makes projects move along at a much faster pace. It comes with the clearly marked sandwich board, cutting pads and instructional pamphlet. The cuts are crisp and easy to pop out of the dies. I have the smaller Big Shot and the Pro just adds so much more to all you can do whether you are using paper, cardboard, or fabric. A great value!

    The video shows the plus size platform and plus size cutting pads, but the description says it comes with standard cutting pads. Are the pads sized to match the machine as in the video or are they the same size as those that come with the smaller Big Shot?   By: User (28-Apr-15) Helpful Question?  Yes  |  No Thank you!

      My machine was shipped out to me today with an expected delivery date of May 5. As soon as it arrives, I will come back with an answer... I promise!

  • Hi! I am thinking of purchasing the Big Shot Plus, but I to am confused by a statement I have heard. Can you use the Bigz dies
    or the Movers and Shapers in this machine, and do not use the Bigz Pro or XL? I was just looking at the pdf
    you sent today, and of course this machine is not listed. Sizzix has so many products, it would be helpful
    to have a list of the specific cans and cannots for the Plus machine.   By: Jcrisci (30-Jul-15) Helpful Question?  Yes  |  No Thank you! Report Inappropriate This question has been reported. Thank you!
    • From what I've read about it, the only dies that can NOT be used by the B.S. Plus is the Bigz PRO dies (Big Shot PRO)..the only difference between the Big Shot & the Big Shot Plus, is the size of workspace- You can use ALL of the Sizzix dies, embossing folders, etc.- EXCEPT FOR BIGZ PRO DIES! By: alyssenicole (13-Oct-15) Helpful Answer?  Yes  |  No Thank you! Report Inappropriate This Answer has been reported. Thank you!

    • If you already own a BigShot - you can use any of those plates on the BigShot Plus You can use the same dies, the Movers and Shapers, etc. As far as I know right now, any of the products that Sizzix makes can be use with the BigShot Plus. At this time I feel the plus gives you more surface area for cutting and you can use wider sheets of paper. I'm not sure what you mean by a specific list of cans and cannot for the plus. Here is my answer for that: you can use all the dies with the plus that you would use for the regular BigShot. I haven't come across any 'can nots' yet!

    I have been told that the Inksheets Transfer Pad and the Precision Pad do not work with the Big Shot Plus. My Inksheets transfer pad cuts through the paper every time, instead of just transferring the ink. I was told this by Sizzix customer support. Is this true?

    • I just watched a long video by SMS and she showed the machine with the ink transfer materials. In the big shot plus everything goes in backwards from the way you would put it in big shot. The video is listed below the video with this machine. You may need to runnthe video shown first for it to come up. The long one i was referring to is almost 1.5. I just skipped through some. Shows the ink transfer stuff near the end. By: Mcnewell (05-Dec-16) Helpful Answer?  Yes  |  No Thank you! Report Inappropriate This Answer has been reported. Thank you!

    • Hi! I haven't used Inksheets Transfer Pad or I looked at the description on the Big Shot Plus and it said: Big Shot Machine offers plenty of stylish appeal with the same versatility of working with the entire Sizzix product library (with the exception of Bigz Plus and Bigz Pro dies) – including our smallest to our big 6" wide plastic-backed dies and embossing tools.

      Included 1 base platform. 1 A and 1 B adapter plate, (these are no longer attached to the platform) and 2 clear cutting plates and all are 9" x 15" By: Tenaciousdae (01-May-15) Helpful Answer?  Yes  |  No Thank you! Report Inappropriate This Answer has been reported. Thank you!

    • Hi! I think this is stated as machine only because Sizzix runs a lot of promotions that include dies and or embossing folders.

    What are the dimensions of the standard cutting pads and adapters A&B are part of this offer.?
    Thank you :-)   By: User (02-Sep-16) Helpful Question?  Yes  |  No Thank you! Report Inappropriate This question has been reported. Thank you!
    • The size dimensions of the standard cutting pads and adapters for this product are 15 3/4" x 11 3/4" x 7 1/2". I
      prefer to use the magnetic platform for wafer-thin dies; 6 1/8" x 8 7/8" x 5/8". I do not use adapters., just the cutting pads in the same size.
      You can also use the larger platform and adapters included with the Sizzix Big Shot Plus Machine but they are to big for the dies I am using.
