Die-cut paper is the process where one image or shape is cut multiple times from the same sheet of paper. This task is commonly used in scrap booking. Creating your own die-cut paper template is an inexpensive process. However, the process to complete the task is long and repetitive. There are speciality machines that simplify this process, although, most machines are costly when only needing them for one or two uses. Paying for the use of another person's machine can also quickly become costly.
