Default What exaclty is a die cutter? And which is the best?

I have seen a ton of threads about " a big shot", "cuttlebug" and a sixxiz?? I am wanting to purchase something to cut flowers out of wool and have seen these associated with them... Sorry if its a dumb question..

Thanks for the replies everyone.... One more dumb question, Is the "big shot" and "big kick" the same thing?

I was wondering about them cutting felt, too. I have been looking at them for a bit, and noticed the sales they are having on them at Joann's this week. Thanks in advance for the info!

It is my understanding that they are the same. I believe Michael's carries one and Joann's carries the other. The Sizzixs are on sale this week at Joann's for 40 % - the dies too.

I just got mine last week and haven't had a chance to use it, but from what I have read on this forum. Wool blend felt works best for the dies.

I use just plain cheap sheets of felt with my Big Kick and it works very well. These are some flowers I made with mine the day I got it (last Sunday) and its a blast. I'm dying to get more dies (ha ha no pun intended)
