Default Cutting felt

Can anyone please tell me a trick to use the thinner dies to cut felt. I just bought a Papertrey Ink die and they claim it cuts felt. I know hat you are going to say, only wool felt. Well that what I thought until I saw it on Etsy. Please help a gal in need. TIA

Funny, I just got my papertrey die, today as well. I have only used it on wool blend felt and to get a clean cut, I placed a piece of cardstock under the die, on top of the platform.

Can you cut it with a cricut? I have never cut anything but paper with mine, but I thought i had seen you could do material.

Hi Colleen! I replied late last night on etsy.

I honestly don't know what I do to get them to cut out.

Here is my "sandwich" when I use the die (in my sizzix big shot):

plastic cutting pad
multipurpose cutting platform (using all tabs)
die
felt
plastic cutting pad

that's it. it comes out smooth everytime. I wish I could help out more!

I do not have a problem cutting acrylic felt, but most felt from those places is not even acrylic. I have not been able to cut craft felt, especially with papertrey dies. If you'd like, for the price of shipping, I'll send you a sample of some acrylic and wool blend felt so you can see if those work before investing in full sheets.

Oh, and what machine are you using?
