Here's the way to use magnetic sheets of paper for cutting with Cuttlebug

My recipe for using a magnetic mat for cutting apertures
  • A Plate
  • Embossing Mat
  • B Plate
  • Magnetic sheet
  • Nestabilities Die (Facing up so it doesn’t cut the magnet!)
  • Cardstock to be cut
  • B Plate.
To cut Apertures in your card
  • Select the die shape that will become your aperture and place it on the magnetic sheet
  • Place the magnetic sheet into your chosen base card
  • Arrange the die on the sheet to the area you wish to have an aperture
  • Carefully place this onto the Cuttlebug and put the B plate on top.
  • Wind the handle on the Cuttlebug to cut the apertures.

Hope this helps you out if you are new to the Cuttlebug or are looking for new ways to get more from your supplies.
