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.
For easy reference of how to assemble “sandwiches” with the included cutting pads and adapters for other types of dies and Sizzix accessories, use the Sizzix Sandwich Booklet that is included in this bundle!
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!
Here are just a few reviews of the included products in this bundle from our Scrapbook.com customers:
"I really do like the Big Shot Plus by Sizzix! I have 01) The Big Shot Plus Machine 02) The Big Shot Plus Platform 03) Big Shot Plus Adapter A & Big Shot Plus Adapter B 04) The Big Shot Plus Cutting Pads. I WISH that I had the Magnetic Platform and the silicone rubber and impressions pad Texturz accessories. Meanwhile, I get a LOT done with my Big Shot Plus. I never have to worry about size limitations for any project. I do a LOT of greeting cards and this machine will do just about anything that I can imagine. I highly recommend this machine and hope that you will add as many accessories as possible . . . IF, like me, you do an extreme variety of cutting, embossing, etc." - dinojack2
"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!" - Janetone
"I had no idea there was such a thing as this stamp mat until I signed up tor the Scrapbook.com Sizzix tutorial. My fuzzy stamped images and uneven ink is no longer a problem, thanks to this mat. Now I come out with clear, sharp images that even better when embossed." - Shanel693
"These Framelits Dotted Rectangles cut like butter. I cut quite a few of these rectangles last weekend for a project and every time the cut was perfect. I would highly recommend these." - maryjomoo
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.
Warranty: Three Year Limited (details)

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!
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!
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.
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!
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.

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!
I really have not used my new Big Shot Plus much, but took it out of the box, set it up and tried an intricate die and it worked like a charm--no hesitation and the die glided through very smoothly. I am looking forward to having fun with my new die-cutting machine! It is heavy enough that it does not slide around as some of the other machines do. It stays in place and seems to cut effortlessly! I am very happy with my purchase! The price on Scrapbook.com was the best I could find!
I am over the moon about this new, larger Big Shot. It is as awesome as my smaller, original, but allows me to get into bigger dies which I have been wanting to do for the longest time. I would highly recommend it, and this site, for the great price and very quick shipping. The machine arrived in stellar condition.
Love the larger "work" area! Also like that the noise of the "speed bump" that you would get with the Big Shot ,........when you run the "sandwich" through.....is not as loud.
A good tip is......when you do have your "sandwich" formed....just tilt the "sandwich" a tad either way....then run it through......and you don't get the noise at all!!!!!
This machine can cut various sized dies such as Sizzix original, bigZ, sizzlets, thin dies, etc., You can also use it with embossing folders. I own four other Sizzix machines, but this one is the best because now I can do everything with one machine. The 9" opening allows me to fit letter sized paper through the machine.
I'm giving this NEW TOY 5 Stars because when I received it I was pleasantly surprised. It is sturdy and well built. Haven't started using this yet, but, I'm sure once I begin, I will be hooked. Trying to gather all the materials I will be using and can't forget to mention all the informative videos I've been watching. This is my first time I have ever used a die machine. So, I am excited and a little cautious at the same time.
AND, so many dies out there!
