Default sizzix help...having a blonde moment

I have a sizzix die for a layered flower and the die cuts a hole in the center, I was sure there was a way to"fix" the die so the hole doesn't cut, any suggestions, I have been working 14 hour days and I think my brain is not waking up this morning ..
thanks ladies...

Don't think so. The only way you could do it would be to cut the regular die out with the machine, and then trace the die cut onto felt, and cut it again using scissors. I don't think there is any way to not cut the middle hole by machine.

I really don't think you can make it not cut the hole out. I have probably the same die and I just use the center for a button. You don't even have to cut the shank off if you are layering the flower enough. Worked for me.

I have one like that too, and all I do is use the round center piece of fabric/felt it cuts out and just glue that right in the middle of the flower on top of the next layer. Then there's no "hole" and I always put a button or rhinestone on top so you don't see the "cutout". Does that make sense???
