Default Can the cuttlekids cut felt?

I wasn't sure exactly where to post this. I was just wondering if anyone knows if the cuttlekids can cut felt? I seen a lot of them at a local thrift store for a few bucks and want to try it out, but want to make sure it cuts felt first. Thanks in Advance!

Not sure what a Cuttlekids is. Do you mean a Cuttlebug? I think the only thing good for cutting felt is the Sizzix or any other hand press machine. Nothing electronic. The blade gets tangled in the felt.

My cuttlebug does cut felt.. I have to put a really thin piece of cardboard under it. I like what it does, but is a little time consuming. I do love the cuttlebug machine. I got mine at michaels for half off and I think it was around 40.00.. I have not seen any machines at the thrifts but if I did I would snap them up.

Cuttlekids dies: I'd say yes & no. I wouldn't recommend investing on their dies.

Yes: It does cut but barely...really, really barely...

No: I had to "manually" cut with scissor the rest of the part that didn't cut.

it does cut, but if you're buying a new machine i would recommend a sizzix or regular cuttlebug. this way you can use larger dies later, including the ones that have many shapes in one for your bows and clips I purchased and then had to go get the sizzix.
now that I have a reg.sizzix i realize i need a bigz cutter.
yikes!! ..
i don't know about the smaller dies, though, from other companies.. when used in the cuttlebug. if that makes sense!

sorry I know this is an old post but thought i might reply because i searched every where for an answer.
I have a cuttlebug and have successfully cut felt in it using the cuttle kid dies i just did 2 pass through instead of one. I think the is very similar given its from the same company. I suggest giving it a few passes through.
