actually, the wool felt it so much easier and cleaner to cut! even cutting multiple layers

I have the big shot as well, and you can definitely cut a few layers at a time. I usually cut about 5-6 layers of fabric and felt only about 3. I would love some input on the bottlecap flattening.

To make my little "sandwich" I put down one cutting pad, then a piece of posterboard (just because I didn't want to mess up my cutting pads) . Then I put my bottlecaps down, then another piece of posterboard, then the other cutting plate. You put all that on top of your platform. You open up your platform all the way. You don't want to use Tab 1 or Tab 2. I hope that makes since. Then crank it on through. And Viola!!!!! Flattened bottlecaps!!! So easy!! I'm gonna have fun with this machine!!

Why would you want to flatten the bottlecaps? Sorry that's stupid question, but I don't do bottlecaps so I don't know

Default Re: Got my Sizzix Big Shot

So I got my big shot and tried cutting felt. no luck

Don't know what I am doing wrong?

I have both regular craft felt and wool felt and I can't get it to cut through either of them.

I did get it to cut through some fabric, but I am getting frustrated. I'm sure it is something simple, but I can't figure it out.

Any suggestions? I have the Sizzix sizzlits 3 die set flower layers

Am I using the wrong die?

Yes you are using the wrong die. If you look on the package the Sizzlets are only for paper and cardstock. You need the Originals or Bigz dies.
