Die cutting is a popular process used by crafters in the arts and crafts industry that allows them to cut
out multiple numbers of the same shape from paper and fabric. The die cutting process involves a “die”
which looks like a cartridge with a shape in it. The shape in the die has sharp edges. The die is placed on
top of multiple pieces of paper or fabric, and everything is sandwiched into a die cutting machine and is
then run through it which puts pressure on the shape to cut into the multiple pieces of paper or fabric.
