    Clever puzzle

    This die seems to have caused some frustration to crafters judging from questions and answers in chat line. However it seems a very straight forward die. I think one of the issues is that the slots are designed to take 2 layers of either chipboard or mat board exactly. Consequently if you want to decorate, adhere paper or put full size centre image you would have to use at least one thinner piece of card. I have so far just used black chipboard with centre images cut shorter than the slots and it works fine. I think the possibilities of this die are only limited by your imagination. I make artists books and I am at present working on a sculptural stack of verse. It also makes neat little notices using just one. I really like it.

Product Questions & Answers

  • I'm not sure if I'm the only one who has problems with this die, but I am in major need of some help/ advice.

    I can't seem to piece these frames together nicely after I paste pattern paper over the chipboards. The base pieces and the connecting piece just doesn't seem to fit anymore once I do that. I'm using basic chipboard as well. If I cut one frame panel, the base/connecting chips are too lose, if I cut 2 frame panels and sandwich them with my instax inside, it's too tight and the chips won't fit. I'm at a loss here ):

    Any advice or help would be great cos it's getting frustrating and I've wasted a lot of my chipboards trying to figure this out /:   By: macintashh (03-Dec-17) Helpful Question?  Yes  |  No Thank you! Report Inappropriate This question has been reported. Thank you!
    • Hi. Briefly I have used the die with chipboard and mountboard (matboard) and the connecting chips are definitely designed to fit tightly on 2 layers. If I wished to use pasted paper I would use a thinner board with the paper, such as greyboard. The same would apply if I sandwiched a die cut in the centre of the 2 pieces. In fact I cut the centre image short of the slits and that works. Hope that helps By: Xap (05-Dec-17) Helpful Answer?  Yes  |  No Thank you! Report Inappropriate This Answer has been reported.

  • I sent the two notes from yesterday, and sent a note tonight where you send comments since I couldn't find where to ask another question. Looking at one of the videos you have on this product, neither of which are very helpful.....you need a video showing how to construct this thing.......I do see now that you have two panels that you glue together. Would cereal boxes work? I really hope you can get someone to make a video show all the steps on how to create this. No such video by mid Nov. at the latest, I won't have to worry about construction since this was to used for Christmas gifts. Thank you for the answers you sent. I just don't know the questions to ask and your videos were no help.   By: porsche (19-Oct-17) Helpful Question?  Yes  |  No Thank you! Report Inappropriate This question has been reported.

    • I am the one who answered your two questions. I do not work for this company or Sizzix. I am a customer. I sent no videos. I did my best to answer your questions. If you own this die, I suggest you play around with it until you are able to get it how you want it to look. If you don't already own this die.... if you indeed want this to stand up as shown in photos, I would not suggest cereal boxes. Thick chipboard or mat board are best. And you will still need to adhere two pieces together for the frame. When you cut this out, you will have one frame, two bottom pieces and one side piece. You will need to cut this out several times in order to get three bottom pieces to glue together, one glued section for each side of frame, and then place the frame into the slots of the bottom section. As shown in photo. The bottom sections serve as the base to hold up the frame. If you want to add several frames, you need several more pieces cut out in order to achieve as shown in photo. It is very easy to put together. You simply piece them together. Only glue required is to achieve the correct thickness so frame stands upright and doesn't wobble. The bottom pieces and side pieces need to have a certain thickness in order to keep frames secure. By: Furgie (20-Oct-17) Helpful Answer?  Yes  |  No Thank you!

  • What is the actual size of the panels that you join together? How high would it be if you stacked three high? What material did you use the 3 stacked high project? I want to use these for calendars and can't believe you used chip board so what did you use? If you can give me any more helpful hints, I'd appreciate whatever you have to offer.   By: porsche (17-Oct-17) Helpful Question?  Yes  |  No Thank you!

    • I just received this today, so haven't had much time to play with it. Hopefully someone else more qualified can answer your questions that are better informed. But for now, and this is approximate. The panel sizes are 4 3/8 inch wide by 3 inches high. If you put one on top of other, 6 inches high, etc...opening is 2 3/8 wide by 1 3/8 inch high. Or opposite if you flip from what appears in photo. As to materials used, I would like to know that as well. I first tried thick chipboard. Cut just fine, but you would need three thicknesses of the brace part in order to fit opening of the panel. So I guess cut extra and glue together. I also tried the Sizzix mat board. That too cut fine. But you still need more than the two cutouts in order for it not to wobble. So you basically need three thicknesses of thick chipboard or Sizzix mat board in order for it to fit securely in panel. I'm not thrilled with this die, I don't think it was well thought out. But if you play with it, you can get it to work. Just cover your chipboard or mat board before cutting! It has possibilities. But really, they should have tweaked this more before releasing.
