I've got some decorations I want to make myself, birds cut from pages of old books. I even found the perfect book to use -- House Plants for Five Exposures. (Am I the only one who worries about using pages from a book and having unexpected inappropriate words on my ornaments?)
So what's stopping me?
I keep thinking that I could cut these out so easily with my Birds die.... except that's for fabric. I had a hard time getting myself to cut the paper pieces for our ghost hunt, until I reminded myself that those Sizzix dies are made for cutting paper with.
So, if the Sizzix dies and AccuQuilt dies are both steel rule dies....why should one cut paper and the other shouldn't? Are the edges different? The company tells you to place a piece of paper over your fabric if you're having trouble getting shapes to cut correctly. Would I even cut enough birds to make a difference?
