How to Die Cut with GO! 2 1/2" Strip Cutter Die:

  • 2 1/2" Strips: Cut 8" wide strips across the width of fabric to cut three 2 1/2" strips. Position fabric on die so fold of fabric is perpendicular to cutting blades and will roll thru the cutter first. One yard of 40" wide fabric cuts 13 strips. 
  • 2 1/2" Squares: Start with a 2 1/2" strip aligning it across the die board with the 90° guide line. Fanfold into 8" widths. Cut 15, 2 1/2" squares across the width of fabric. One yard of 40" wide fabric cuts 195 squares. 
  • 45° Diamond-3 5/8" Cut Side Edge: Start with a 2 1/2" strip aligning it across the die board to the right side of the 45° guide line. 
  • 30° Diamond-5" Cut Side Edge: Start with a 2 1/2" strip aligning it across the die board to the right side of the 30° guide line. 
  • 60° Diamond-3" Cut Side Edge: Start with a 2 1/2" strip aligning it across the die board to the right side of the 60° guide line.

Die Tips: 

  • With some fabrics, after cutting, a thread or two will remain where die blades meet. Snip threads with scissors. 
  • Blades on some dies are positioned at an angle.  Align fabric to edge of shape, not edge of die board. 
  • Use good quality fabric to reduce fabric stretch. 
  • It's always a good idea to test cut one shape before cutting many shapes to ensure fabric orientation is correct.
