CREATE with Your Die-namics Die from My Favorite Things - Not Just for Paper!

Let's take a look at four types of materials easily cut with Die-namics,!!

A Note About Varying Pressure of Die-Cut Machines: The pressure produced by each machine will vary. Get to know your machine by trying different stack and shim options and keep your *recipes* nearby to make demo-ing a breeze for you.


You can create your own chipboard embellishments with Die-namics dies and thin cardboard, or lightweight chipboard. Chipboard embellishments add great dimension to cards and scrapbook pages.

Supplies- all from My Favorite Things....any of these can be ordered for you!!!

Die-namics: Behind the Camera; Mini Album Bracket STAX; Dainty Doily

Stamps: Behind the Camera


Iron-on patches are the simplest way to add fabric to your projects. The patches have a backing that help fabric edges cut cleanly.

When using fabric scraps, make sure to add an iron-on adhesive to the back of the fabric. The backing will make the fabric easier to cut and will help prevent the fabric from fraying.

Use fabric in place of patterned paper on your cards or projects.


Die-namics: Pretty Pocket; Rectangle STAX Set 2; Fishtail Flags STAX; Layered Rose; Simply Scallops Medium

Stamps: Howdy

Burlap and Felt

Burlap adds great charm to projects, as well as texture and dimension. When working with burlap we recommend an iron-on adhesive to help fabric edges cut cleanly.

Felt is a very popular material to use when cutting Die-namics. It is easy to work with and makes beautiful embellishments for your projects, such as flowers.


Die-namics: Tradtional Tags STAX; Circle STAX Set 1; Circle STAX Set 2; Large Hybrid Heirloom Rose; Leaf-Filled Flourish

Stamps: Birthday Sentiments

We hope you're inspired to try new materials with your Die-namics Dies and all of your thin metal dies!!  And remember "Die-namics are not *just* for paper!".
