March 6, 2018

Do you have a Kaisercraft DIY Cuts Machine at home?  Have you ever been interested in learning a little more about it?  Are there any questions you might have about this machine such as “How to get your B Plates to stop from bending?”  Today for Tutorial Tuesday I am focusing completely on the DIY Cuts Machine.  I have attached a Video Tutorial showing you exactly how I use the machine and I can do my best to answer any questions you might have about it.  It will probably make more sense for you to watch the Video first and then read through the notes below.

The DIY Cuts Machine is perfect for all your Die Cutting and Embossing needs.  Included with your purchase of the machine is Five Plates.  In the Video I step you through each one including the Base Plate, The Cutting Plate B (Which you receive two of in your box), The Adapter Plate C and the Metal Adapter Plate.  These plates are placed in different positions depending on if you are Die Cutting or Embossing.
