Welcome to today’s Tuesday’s Tip. These posts are tips about different products, crafting and also ways of stretching the supplies that you already may have. I alternate Tuesday’s Tip, Technique Tuesday and Tuesday’s Tag just to change things up a bit.
If you have ever purchased dies or framelits that come adhered to a backing sheet, then you know how tricky they can be to remove with out damaging them. Some dies are very delicate and will bend easily if pulled too hard. They really stick to that adhesive!! Today I want to share with you how to safely get them off of the adhesive strips just by using a heat tool.
Pre-heat the heat tool. Then, holding the heat tool a few inches away from the dies, move it around for 10 seconds or so. This will loosen the “sticky” making the dies easy to remove. ∗Please note: be very careful when first attempting to remove the dies. If they are too hot, wait a few seconds for them to cool and try again.
If you are interested, check out this post for storing dies. I have found storing the dies on magnetic sheets inside their plastic packaging to be very handy and am transitioning them all to this method. Feel free to share if you have any die storage tips!
I hope you enjoyed this weeks tip. As always, please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.
