Craft Product Review: Cut, Fold, and Tuck Dies by Spellbinders

Pinterest

I love dies. I especially love Spellbinder’s dies because of their slim, easy-to-store design and great price point. Now I have even another reason to love them: these innovative Cut, Fold, and Tuck Dies make lovely 3-d embellishments that I could never cut by hand.

Here’s how the Cut Fold and Tuck Dies are described on the Spellbinders website:

Elaborate die cut creations made in minutes! Spellbinders™ Shapeabilities® Cut • Fold • Tuck die templates create intricate geometric designs in a single pass. Simply fold the cut outs and then tuck the folded pieces as you work your way around the die cut. Instantly create dimensional designs! Layer the individual pieces for dramatic effects!

Spellbinders Shapeabilities dies cut, emboss and stencil with a single die template.

Approximate Die Template Sizes:

1: 1â…œ”
2: 2¼”
3: 4″

Let’s take a closer look at the detail of the dies.

While slim, they have a lot of detail and are very sturdy.

 

I got to play with two different sets- there are currently five different sets available- and they work very well. However, the more intricate the die is- like the Specacular Spin die- the more fussy it is to cut and remove from the die itself.

I’ve got a video overview for you of my experience:

I couldn’t wait to make some projects with my CFT dies!

These dies just blow my mind! They are so lovely and easy to use. If you can just be patient and use your awl, you’ll be happy with your results I think!

Spellbinders Cut Fold Tuck dies retail for $29.99 USD for a 3-die set.

    Great review! My machine has been sitting on the top shelf in my craft cave for a long time. I really like the idea of these dies. Thanks for the review.

  5. Karen Kokocki Says:

    Do you know if they work with the cuddlebug??

  6. Jenny Says:

    Karen- they WILL work with the Cuttlebug- just add another piece of cardstock (or two) to “shim” it for a nice cut!

  7. Alice Pace Says:

    Oh my gosh you are killing me….these have to be the most adorable dies ever!

  8. Brenda B Says:

    These are so totally cool! I think it’s probably time that I consider a die cut machine…I guess you could say I’m a bit behind the times.

  9. Jenny Says:

    Vicki- I did get the CFT dies to work with the Cuttlebug- just use an extra piece of cardstock to shim them up a bit!

  10. Cheryl Wright Says:

    I bought this die set at the weekend but haven’t had a chance to use it yet. Thank you so much for doing this video. I think it’s probably saved me a lot of time and angst!

    I’ve even more excited about using it now.
