The Cuttlebug is a die cutting and embossing system for paper crafts. Cuttlekids is the version for children. You can use Cuttlekids dies in the regular Cuttlebug but Cuttlebug dies won't work with the Cuttlekids machine.


The Cuttlebug system consists of a machine into which you place special dies. You use these dies to cut out paper shapes or to emboss paper. You can then use these paper elements to make greetings cards, decorate scrapbooks or make other paper arts and crafts. Cuttlekids is a version with a smaller machine that is easier to use. It boasts special safety features such as different blades to make it more suitable for children.


While Cuttlekids dies will fit into the Cuttlebug machine, the reverse is not true. The Cuttlekids system uses special dies that are smaller than regular Cuttlebug cutting and embossing dies. Its blades have undergone development and testing to make sure they are child safe. Adult Cuttlebug dies have not. The Cuttlekids system is designed specifically so that adult Cuttlebug dies won't work with it, so that kids are only using the safer dies.


Children should not be allowed to touch or play with objects that contain sharp blades. Serious injury may result.
