Tuesday Tip: Detailed Die Cutting

Good morning sunshines!  I read a wonderful tip on a Splitcoast Stampers forum recently, and I had to share it with you today...  I'm not sure who came up with it first, but thank you whoever-you-are!

When you use a die cut out that has a lot of tiny details, use a lint roller to get all of the little holes out. Just roll the lint roller over the cut out in the die (or take it out and hold it down while you roll it) and the tiny pieces will pop right out... and with no residue!  Awesome, right?!!

If any of you out there have any papercraft ideas or tips that you'd like to share, 
feel free to drop me a line at NCSUnikki@aol.com, any time!

Awesome tip - thx for sharing! I have used low tac tape on the back of intricate die cuts - they pick up residue without sticking to the die cut but not always!

Great tip! I always use wax paper when I use my nesties that have a lot of little cuts. Like the labels. It works great.
