The attraction is obvious! For perfect registration, the Sizzix Magnetic Platform uses high-grade magnets to hold Thinlits, Framelits and other chemically-etched, wafer-thin dies securely in place during cutting. This makes them instantly compatible with the BIGkick, Big Shot, Big Shot Pro and Vagabond machines. To die-cut one layer of thin material using Sizzix Framelits, Thinlits and other chemically-etched wafer-thin dies, the Magnetic Platform is required along with Cutting Pads. The diagrams on the Magnetic Platform and its tabs offer easy guidelines about how to make the perfect Sizzix sandwich.
