Default Die-namics Rectangle STAX Set 1 Sizes..

Hi,

My name is Marlene and I love everything I'm seeing done with the MFT Stamps and Products!! I'm looking at getting the rectangle STAX 1 or 2, can't afford both. So I was wondering if anyone could give me some sizes of the cut out rectangles. I know that the STAX sets layer approximately 3/16" with one set and approximately 1/16" with two sets. But what does that really mean?

If the smallest rectangle is 1" x 2", the next one in the set would be approx 1-3/16" x 2-3/16?

Any advice or tips would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

I can't help of these stax, but I love MFT dies and stamps. I have the Star stax and the fishtails. All the dies are so nice and this new release has the nicest Christmas dies!! Check the store, it gives sizes and they have tons of youtube videos.

The layering varies slightly amongst the basic STAX, but the above are the exact measurements. I just pulled mine out and measured them all for you.

Hope that helps you make a decision.

Thank You Jody!!! Just have to say that I LOVE everything you do with MFT products!!

Are these measurements for the dies themselves? Or the paper cut out? Also I think they can emboss, right? To leave a nice border around your image?

Thanks for all the help!!

Thank you so much, that is so very sweet of you to say.

The measurements are for the cutting portion of the die (I measured the blades), so they are accurate (or very close) to the actual die-cut. They can emboss, yes.

You're very welcome.
