They are simple to use. Tape the die face down to your paper with removable tape. This helps keep your die in place as you may have to rotate the die during the cutting process.

Run the die and the paper through your table top machine forwards and backwards a few times. If some spots did not cut completely through simply rotate your die and run it through your machine again.

Use a small pick to remove any remaining paper from the die. Flick the paper with your finger to reveal the intricate cuts. To remove any paper that may remain in the die simply use a small pin to push out the remainder of the paper.

Tattered Lace dies are universal and work with all machines.
