Sizzix Die questions
Hi there -- has anyone worked out a way to stop the eyes, nose etc from cutting out of the Owl #2 and Puppy dies ???? Also can this die go through the cuttlebug ??? Thanks in advance. Kim

I use a Big Shot with them and haven't had any problems.

I don't have any problems with mine, either.

Jeanne, I think she's asking if there is a way to cut the owl body without cutting the eyeholes out of the middle of the head? I had sub'd the thread earlier because I had thought that would be a cool if there were actually a way to make that work. :)

Lori -- yes that is correct. I have read that some people have the eyes cut out completely where others only have a score line. I have seen heaps made using DS papers and I was wondering what they did on the inside so that there wasn't big holes.
I have seen one lady who cut her eyes out and removed the cutters.
Thanks for your help anyway.

I always cut a folded card template in the shape if the body to go on the inside so the holes don't show on the inside of the card. :) I'd love it if my eyes weren't always poked out! :)

I don't know which the puppy one is, but I bet the owl is this one - here's one of Jeanne's cards using it: HYCCT1211 Halloween Owl by Jeanne S - Cards and Paper Crafts at Splitcoaststampers

Oh that is adorable!
Thx for the link. :0)

The eyes shouldn't be cutting. They should just kinda emboss in those areas so you have placement. You could try a crease pad instead of the Big Shot clear plate.
