Die Cutting Flowers with Cork Contact Paper, Replacement Screen and Jean Material? WHAT?!

In this video, we will be die cutting flowers with cork contact paper, replacement screen and jean material to make a flower.

You can start with whatever material you prefer to die cut your flowers. Here I have used the screen material as an example but you can repeat these steps with whatever material you are using. You will take your platform first then layer on top your die, then your material (screen as shown above here) and then on top of that the other platform. You are ready to run this through your manual die cut machine! * Note: The screen material can have some sharp edges so please use caution when die cutting flowers with this material and using it with your projects.  screen die cut

Once you have die cut the screen material, take off the top platform, cut pieces and material.

Place your next material on the die and place platform on top. Run your “sandwich” through your manual die cut machine. Remove die cut pieces. Repeat above for any additional material you wish to use.die cut cork
