I love dies, they are so versatile and useful for all kinds of crafts using paper and more!!  Here are 6 tips, tricks, and idea for your nesting wafer thin dies.



Here is a video tutorial for each step below in more detail.


1. Basic Cuts

You can use you die to create basic cuts with any of your die cutting machines.  Here is a simple tag example.



2. Thin Layered Cuts

You can nest the dies into each other to create thin cuts and then stack them into each other for a fun effect.


3. Window Cuts

Cut into a card with a shape to make a window.


4. Partial Cuts

Off center the die to make a partial cut, then you can layer it back into itself for a fun look!


5. Embossing

Use the reverse side of the die to create a light embossed look.  You can also take a pen and outline each shape for a more dramatic effect.

6.  Stacking Shapes

Cut out shapes of different sizes from the nested dies and stack them on top of each other for a really fun effect.


Nested dies are really the most versatile dies out there, so many possibilities for creating all kinds of amazing paper crafts.  What will you create next?
