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 the perfect placement on 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.
The possibilities are literally endless when you use your Sizzix Big Shot Plus machine with thousands of thin metal dies, steel rule dies, embossing folders, and more that will bring projects you've only imagined in your dreams to life!
TIP: The Sizzix Big Shot Plus machine’s polycarbonate plastic cutting pads often make loud creaking, cracking, and snapping noises while being cranked through the machine. This is no cause for alarm! This is a normal part of machine operation and the cutting pads and machine are designed to withstand the pressures of cutting. The pads may even show outlines of your dies after use - do not panic! This is totally normal as well! To extend the life of your cutting pads, flip them over periodically.

I'm enjoying trying out a little bit of everything that this machine can do. What a time saver. I really wish that the sizzix sandwich book came with it Short on instructions and looking for answers on line can be time consuming. This is the biggest reason why I didn't give 5 stats.
I love my Big Shot Plus! I have only been working with my Cricut, which I was very happy with, but it was getting tired so I thought I’d try the Big Shot. I originally wanted the express, which is electronic, but it wasn’t available anywhere. I decided to try the Plus. Great choice. Cut right through intricate dies using glitter paper. Sold me there! I would highly recommend.
