Default My new Cuttlebug won't cut ribbon

So back to the store it goes. I really thought it would work. I am going to try a sizzix and hopefully it will cut the ribbon.

It does cut the ribbon, it just doesn't make clean cuts like it does with felt. But maybe I'm wrong, and the Sizzix machine will do a better job.

~yups~

The Cuttlebug has a ‘roller action’ and the Sizzix and Boss Kut have a ‘push down’ action. Pretty much, they do the same function, cuts!. You may need a converter or an adapter (not familiar which CB needs, as I hv the Sizzix) to be able to use Sizzix dies on your CB machine.

I did the same thing as for fabric, put a sheet of card between the perspex to give it a firmer roll through. The ribbon did cut no problems.

if it didn't cut your ribbon, you might just need more 'shims' to make more pressure.

As some others have said~~just put a few pieces of card stock under the plastic piece and it will then cut ribbon!

Great. I'll try that before it goes back to the store.
