S167 Hotspot Helper 15" x 3"
Size 15" x 3" (381mm x 76mm)
The Hotspot helper is designed to help crafters cut those difficult details in the centre of die cuts. Our product is a certified aerospace material for aircraft however we found this product to be a valuable crafter's accessory.
While the S114 metal adaptor plate makes a big difference, the normally difficult area on a die cutting platform becomes " The Hotspot" with this product.
Your kit includes a 3" x 15" strip. This will fit on an extended platform (usually a thick, white base). For shorter platforms, trim the strip to the desired length. The full sized strip is excellent for A4 machines like the crossover A6 platforms (Cuttlebug and Big Shot), would use a 2" wide strip. Trim to width.
Peel and place the Hotspot strip down the centre of the platform. This is usually the weakest area for cutting in any machine. When you do see a weakly cut area, move the die and material over to the Hot Spot and pass the platform down and back and you'll see improved cuts. The Cheery Lynn metal adaptor plate is still needed for the Cuttlebug, while with the Big Shot and Big Kick machines, the metal adaptor plate is optional depending on the age of the machine.
Kraft-Tex is a thicker material that has the look and feel of leather. It's a paper product that doesn't rip like paper yet it die cuts like paper. It's very rugged and may be sewn. It washes just like fabric.
