AccuCut Die Cutting Machines
Die cutting refers to the process in which you use a machine and a die to cut out multiples of the same shape. Think of the die as a cookie cutter. You can create the same shape over and over out of multiple materials without using scissors, a craft knife or any other means to cut them out. Simply place your paper on the die, cover with the appropriate mat, and crank the handle to push the die through the machine. The Alliance Public Library offers access to two AccuCut Machines and many useful dies.
The edges of each die’s cutting blade are embedded in soft and durable foam; however, caution should be used and the foam and blades should never be pressed down upon. Fingers and any other materials should be kept away from the steel rollers to prevent injury or damage to the machine.
