I bought the magnetic sheets through SU 3 for 9.95. These are made for the BS at 6 x 13 and fairly thin. They are adhesive backed so I just cut one slightly shorter than my standard cutting pad and adhered it to a new, unused plate. It's permanent and I just use this pad for my Spellbinders.
The bottom of my Spellbinders sandwich is the magnetic plate then my die (cutting side up) then my card stock and on top is a regular cutting pad.

I guess maybe I'm not getting it. I get the idea of attaching the magnetic sheet to the new cutting pad, but then wouldn't every time you run the sandwich through, the edge let would cut the magnetic pad?
Maybe it's too early and I haven't had enough coffee yet.

When I use the magnetic plate I put the smooth side of the die against the magnet sheet and the cutting side up, then the paper and then the acrylic plate. When I have an image already stamped that I want to cut out I will center the die over the image and tape it on with removable tape and then flip it over so that the cutting edge still goes against the acrylic plate.
