Hi Doreen, I don't have that die but with the Marianne dies I do have, i find that if i give it a good tap all over with an antistatic bag before i cut, then the paper just falls out if I give it a good tap. Of course i don't always remember lol

Hi Doreen
after i have finished with the die i just get a pin or something with a sharp point and poke them out they come out easy that way.

Oh, I have that die but not used it so far - I'll need to look out my anti static bag and my pokey too methinks. It's a beautiful die though so worth the effort. Hugs xx

Hi Doreen, put it in water with a bit of fairy, they just float out.

I have trouble with the Shapeability pendant, Fleur de lis.
I just can't get the b***er out. Card, paper, can't do a thing with this one. And there are so many little bits to it too.
I'll have to try some of these tips cos I don't use this lovely die as it is such a headache.
I hope you have some luck and get it sorted, Doreen

Anyone really struggling can use a little bit of spray adhesive on the die, run a thin sheet of 'packing foam' through it and then use it as normal, the packing foam stays in the die and the paper just pops out, hope this helps XXX
