First cut out card stock using the Big Shot Dye. This card stock is great as a template to make sure you are getting the most out of your felt. Cut out pieces of your felt around your card stock template trying to get as close as you can to the border of the card stock. Next take your Big Shot machine and place your cutting plates on the bottom, as well as your dye. Then layer your cut out felt pieces on top of your dye. Start rolling your felt through by cranking the handle on your Big Shot. After doing this you will find a perfect cut out of your desired template!
