- With some fabrics, after cutting, a thread or two will remain where the die blades meet. Snip threads with scissors.
- Blades on some dies are positioned at an angle. Align fabric to the edge of the shape, not edge of die board.

- It's always a good idea to test cut one shape before cutting many shapes to ensure fabric orientation is correct.
