Making Boxes ..

Hi Everybody,

I have had an email from a lady who has bought the Complete Card & Box Die Set and is disappointed that the box will not go through her smaller die cutting machine

By virtue of the size of the finished BOX you will need an A4 cutting platform to use them.

The box may be a 5x7 but it has one inch sides to be able to make into a box, and the tuck in fold at the top, and so the die is almost 7½ x 10 ½ and is never going to fit through a 6" gap.

The 6" box in 8x8¾ and again will not fit through  the smaller machines.

But there is a way around this and I have done a video to show you how to overcome this minor problem without going to the expense of buying a larger machine.
 Every other die and folder CAN be used with the 6" platform

I hope it goes some way to answering any questions you may have and will not stop you from buying any of the other beautiful dies in either of these collections

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx


  1. Great video explaining how to use your Dies for anyone that didn’t realise the size meant it wouldn’t fit in a smaller machine.


  2. A good common sense video - very useful xx

  4. Great video Christina for the smaller machines easy when you know how. I'm lucky enough to have the larger machine & I have your 6x6 box Die as I tend to do smaller cards now for posting.

  7. Hello Christina,
    I have both the 5 x 7 and 6 x 6 card making sets, together with some of your stamps and additional dies and use them all the time. They are fantastic and your videos are always a mine of information.

  8. Pam Mckenzie - I purchased a Big Shot Plus when I got your first collection, so am one of the lucky ones, a very good explanation for those who only have the smaller machine, thank you Pam Mckenzie, Spain

  9. Great video Christina, and very informative, so there is no excuse not to make a box...thank you....luv Ursula xx

  10. Very useful video.
    Thank you, Christina.

  11. Hi Christina
    I am fortunate enough to have the large machine but the video was very informative for those people who have the smaller machines. You show us all that there is no need to stick fast when it can be done by hand as well. Thank you
    Best wishes
