Default Die-cutting from strips of paper?

Hello all!

I'm going to do my best to describe what I'm looking to do.

I have a die that cuts STRIPS of paper so that I can create a striped panel of different colors.

What I'd LIKE to do is to be able to die cut letters or shapes from the striped panel.

I'm just not sure how to best go about that. If I glue the stripes FIRST then won't the paper be too thick?

Am I making any sense? LOL

Thanks so much!

You shouldn’t have a problem with cutting if you adhere your strips to a piece of copy paper and then die cut it.  Jennifer Maguire does this technique quite a bit. You can check her blog or YouTube channel for “ using your paper scraps” or similar search.

Thanks so much for your help!

I did a YouTube search after posting this and I found the videos.

However, I didn't know how to delete posts here once I've created them.

 I Love this technique ever since I saw Jennifer do it. It's really good for using up scraps, and for making quick cards. The trick is definitely to use copy paper as a base, I made one batch using cardstock as a base, and it really is too thick to die cut! Lesson learnt, lol. But with copy paper it works fine. 
 For some reason can't add a pic of some I've done, but link here to a blog post I did.
