How to Use the Sizzix Big Shot Plus Switch:
To use the Sizzix Big Shot Plus Switch Machine with a steel rule die, place the die between a pair of cutting pads with the paper face down over the part of the die design you would like to cut. If needed, use washi tape or masking tape to secure the paper in place to get perfect placement of your paper. Set the die and pad “sandwich” on the cutting path of the Big Shot Plus Switch Machine and push the electric feed button on top of the machine.
To use the Sizzix Big Shot Switch Plus Machine with a thin metal die, you’ll need to use the included Big Shot Switch Plus Platform with adapter A or the Sizzix Magnetic Platform (sold separately), as well as a pair of cutting pads that are included in the starter kit. To create your die cutting “sandwich”, begin by placing the platform on the bottom with the adapter on top of it. Next, place the first cutting pad on top of the stack. Then place your paper right side up on top of the cutting pad. Place the thin metal die on top of the paper, with the cutting edge down. Finish the sandwich by placing the second cutting pad on top. Set the die and Sizzix pads “sandwich” on the cutting path of the Big Shot Switch Plus machine and press the electric feed button on top of the machine and the sandwich should slide smoothly through the machine.
TIP: The Sizzix Big Shot Switch Plus machine’s polycarbonate plastic cutting pads can make loud creaking, cracking, and snapping noises while advancing through the machine that may sound alarming. Do not panic if your machine makes these noises while cutting. This is a normal part of machine operation and the Sizzix pads and machine are designed to withstand the pressures of cutting.
