Add a lacy elegance to your projects with the Crochet Thinlits Die set from the Alterations Collection by Tim Holtz for Sizzix. There are 4 thin metal dies included in the package that measure 5.5" x .675" to 6.15" x 1.25". The dies are compatible with the BIGkick, Big Shot and Vagabond machines. The set requires the use of a pair of Cutting Pads and the machine's included Platform; when using the Essentials Platform or Solo Platform & Shim, the Extended Adapter or Solo Adapter is required. All items are sold separately.
I got these to make lace for my 12 x 12 layouts. The pieces line up so that you can make a continuous line of lace in whatever length you need. The smaller laces dies are a bit shorter than the wider ones so I need to make three passes on a 12" strip. I'm sure I will use them on smaller projects too, they really do read as realistic lace. I also go the chrome precision plate with this and the cuts are great, I haven't tried them on a standard cutting mat. They are very detailed, but because they can be placed end to end it makes them very different from most edge dies.
This die can be used as trim on everything paper. Looks so real. You have to look at it twice. Great idea. You can make your own lace and in any color you desire right at your craft table. Beautiful product! Couldn't wait to get it.
I love these dies. They cut beautifully (and I am not using the precision plate although I do run them through and then back again.) The detail is great, they are pretty easy (using washi tape so they don't slip) to line up for a longer cut and, if you don't want to mess with a continuous cut, look great just lined up next to a separate cut. Love, love, love them!
