The instructions say it's not made for cutting more than a sheet of cardstock, so I don't usually expect a clean cut with thick stuff.

Also, I confess to trying some thick stuff anyway and the blade "stutters" ,which is terribly dangerous because the blade mechanism flips and could easily cut your fingers. I won't try it again.

Your local print or copy shop will usually cut with incredible accuracy, when you want thick stock or multiple layers like your mini-books cut. Usually there's a minimum charge. I paid $5 to have 125 sheets of GinaK luxury cardstock cut to 5X7 card size. They did in seconds what it would have taken me many hours to do myself.

The Cuttlebug isn't good for cutting chipboard either, at least with the brands of dies I've tried. I bought way too many chipboard coasters that I intended to turn into very large snowflake ornaments. It didn't work. Anybody want some coasters?
