Instructions: To operate the Sizzix Big Shot machine with thin metal dies, use the included Sizzix Multi-Purpose Platform or an accessory platform such as the Sizzix Magnetic Platform (sold separately), as well as the included set of sparkly cutting pads. To create your die cutting “sandwich”, begin by placing the platform on the bottom. On top of the platform, place one Ocean Sparkle cutting pad. Then place your material 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 material). Finish the die cut “sandwich” by placing the second cutting pad on top. Set the die and pad “sandwich” on the cutting path of the Big Shot machine, and turn the crank to move it through the machine. You may need a little bit more elbow power once the "meat" of your die-cut "sandwich" is rolling through the machine, but only a little more pressure will get you all the way through.
To use the Sizzix Big Shot with a steel rule die, place the die between the Ocean Sparkle cutting pads with the material 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 material. Set the die and pad “sandwich” on the cutting path of the Big Shot machine, and turn the crank to move it through the machine.
For easy reference of how to assemble “sandwiches” with the included Ocean Sparkle cutting pads 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 machine with thousands of thin metal dies, steel rule dies, and embossing folders that will bring projects you've only imagined in your dreams to life!
Here are just a few reviews of the products included in this exclusive bundle from our Scrapbook.com customers:
"The Scrapbook.com exclusive cutting pads are actually a life saver! DO YOU KNOW HOW MUCH STUFF I HAVE ON MY SCRAPBOOK TABLE? If these bad boys were clear I would spend 1/3 of my time just trying to locate the pads! This is brilliant to put them in a bright glitter color so they stand out against any background. As for the machine, it's a no-brainer. GET IT. It feels extremely sturdy and is foolproof to use. I hadn't even heard about die cutting until a few weeks ago let alone know how to operate a machine. It's easy to use but looks like a professional did it! I would recommend this to anyone looking for a good, manual die cutting machine." - giococello
"Love this little guy! It's just right for a beginner and it's size makes it easy to store (I have very limited space for crafting and so that's important). Before the Big Shot I was hand cutting everything and no matter how careful I was things didn't match up. The dies are wonderful. Most important of all is all your classes for beginners." - terrythompson436
"The first chance I had, I tried out the brush roller on a challenging embossed piece and all the little pieces came right off with a simple roll of the brush! Thank you for this time-saving tool!" - Lindabarnett1
"This sandwich booklet is the perfect book for me. Every time I go to use my dies I have to stop and think if I am doing it right. Do I need this or do I need that or no I don't need it. LOL, now I can have a cheat sheet and not question myself anymore. Thank you so much for the lifesaver booklet." - lyndavz
"Finally a SAFE pick tool! Stylish, well made, sharp paper piercer with a cover that works. Stays on tightly when you are not using the tool, can be placed on other end without falling off when you are. No more injuries reaching into your craft bag. Definitely recommend! Also a great gift!" - misker
TIP: The Ocean Sparkle 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 bought the Big Shot a short time ago. Now I'm a crafter who has had a Cuddlebug and an Excalibur and I'm here to tell you that the Big Shot is the easiest machine to use...in my opinion. I love it! Scrapbook.com also had the best price and sale at the time I purchased this machine. I would recommend you check here before checking anyplace else before to buy. There is a reason more crafters use the Big Shot and I now know why!! Do you want to know why?
I've been using another company's die cutting machine since I started card making 3-4 years ago. I've been ok with its performance, but could tell it was lacking, just from all the tutorial videos I watched with people using the Big Shot. I've only had this a week but can already tell it's miles above my old machine in quality, performance, and ease of use. I wish I'd have gotten this brand when I first started paper crafting! I highly recommend!!
So far I am loving the whole die cut craft! It was very confusing at first what additional parts I need to make the “sandwich”. It seems there are a lot of add ons. I find that if I stick with products from one company, excluding the dies, then all the parts work.
As for dies, I make sure I stay with “thinlits” or wafer thin die cuts.
Wow, this is my first die cut machine and this is really the most amazing tool. I ended up getting this one because the reviews for the Big Shot were far and above some of the other brands. It is heavy but not so heavy that you can't easily pick it up and move it or take it with you to your craft group. It is very portable still even though it does not fold up. The pads are cute and hide the cut marks better than the clear ones. I used it quite a lot right off the bat. The pads are already pretty warped which I hear happens with all die cut machines so I am wondering how long they will last but so far no complaints,..this thing is really amazing!!
