LOVE this die and it works perfectly in the Big Shot. (I got my Big Shot just a while back after owning a Cuttlebug for years. So I'm still using my Cuttlebug plates in the Big Shot. So my stack from the bottom up is: A plate, C plate, die - cutting side up, cardstock, B plate.d) Not sure about the stack for the MPP (and too tired to go look), but if you use Nesties in your Big Shot, the stack would be the same for the Seed Packet die. (I think it's the MPP using both tabs, cutting plate, die - cutting side up, cardstock, cutting plate. And since this die has scoring lines, I have used the Crease pad, which helps eliminate cutting the lines that are supposed to be scored.)

Thanks! The score lines are what concern me the most. I had read of people who use SU dies in the CB with no problems but, for me, I had problems with the score lines every time. I ended up buying the Big Shot and now the SU dies go through perfectly every time, score lines and all. I am just leaning towards this die for the $$ savings over the Petite Pocket. I wish there was someone out there who compared similar products so you could actually SEE the difference....the Tim Holtz pocket die vs the PTI Seed Packet vs the SU Petite Pocket. It's so hard to tell from pictures on the internet!

I agree. I wish they would give the measurements of the finished item and not just the die size. It also doesn't help when they say 'small', 'medium' or 'large' because as compared to what???

Thanks uncbballfan! That makes all the difference in the world For me, the PTI one is the way to go as long as the score lines will be fine if I used the sandwich listed for the big shot. The SU one is pretty much exactly the width of a gift card so there is really no "wiggle room" and since not all gift cards are exactly the same, I think the PTI one is a better choice. A lady's got to have her wiggle room!!!
