Default Cuttlebug help

I just tried my new Cuttlebug to make some felt flowers, but they aren't coming out right. The cut isn't though most of the material and one of my B cutting pads is now curved. What did I do wrong? Thanks for any help!

the cutting boards get curved after awhile but it sounds like you were using too thick of ones? were u using a cuttlebug or sizzix die?

I used a cuttlebug die and went through it up to five times, using the A B & B pads. I wish the instructions were more clear, or maybe it's just me.

Make sur ethat you are not using an acrylic felt. That stuff is too cheap. Get a wool blend felt and it will cut like butta!

Thanks for all of the help and suggestions. I went to get some wool felt today and Joann's had a real poor selection. I bought two Sizzix dies and boy did that make a difference! It's now cutting all of my felt like butta. Thanks again!

Some of mine wouldn't cut well at first so I added a piece of cardstock to make it tighter when it went through and it cut much better.
