Sizzix Big Shot Machine Only (White & Gray) w/ Standard Platform
Presenting a brand-new look for the Big Shot! With a sleek white and gray color scheme and the Sizzix logo embossed on the handle, this version of the Big Shot Machine offers plenty of stylish appeal with the same versatility of working with the entire Sizzix product library (with the exception of Bigz Plus and Bigz Pro dies) - including our smallest to our big 6" wide plastic-backed dies and embossing tools. If that wasn't big enough, this portable roller machine cuts and embosses many different materials. Create your own one-of-a-kind cards, invitations, scrapbook pages, home décor, fashion, altered art, quilting and much more! (To ensure compatibility, always check machine and accessory requirements. Machine accessories may be sold separately.)
Included with the Big Shot are a pair of Standard Cutting Pads and the Standard Platform, which makes all Sizzix components thinner than a Bigz Die compatible with the Big Shot Machine! The diagrams on the Platform and Thin Die Adapter offer easy guidelines about how to make the perfect Sizzix sandwich.

Instructions: To use the Sizzix Big Shot machine with thin metal dies (like the included sentiments and floral lattice) use the included Sizzix Platform as well as the included set of cutting pads. To create your die cutting “sandwich”, begin by placing the platform on the bottom. On top of the platform, place one cutting pad. Then place your paper right side up on top of the cutting pad. Place the thin metal die on top of the paper, with the cutting edge down (in contact with the paper). Finish the die cut “sandwich” by placing the second cutting pad on top. Set the die and pad “sandwich” on the cutting path of the Big Shot machine, and turn the crank to move it through the machine.
TIP: The Sizzix Big Shot machine’s polycarbonate plastic cutting pads often make loud creaking, cracking and snapping noises while being cranked through the machine, that can sound alarming. Do not panic if your machine makes these noises while cutting! This is a normal part of machine operation and the cutting pads and machine are designed to withstand the pressures of cutting.
