While Glue Dots® Permanent Adhesive Sheets for Die Cutting make adhering thinly scripted cuts really easy, sometimes weeding them out from the base without damaging them can be challenging. If you’re a bit new to paper crafting and die cutting, we encourage you to start with a font that's a bit wider and blockier than the one shown above. This is a fun technique to play around with—you’ll be surprised at how many manual dies and different electronic die cutting shapes and fonts this works with!
