    I have both of those and use them quite often. It makes a thicker letter than my Cricut.

    Taffy, are you making sure that the word 'Fiskars' on the template is face up? If the word Fiskars isn't readable it won't cut correctly.

    Yah. I would LOVE to know how to use it, but i'm tired of trying to figure it out.. besides all it does is just sit around.

    I have several of the fiskar templates with the round blade tool, that you're suppose to be able to cut the different items out with and I've not had much luck using them either...I figure I'm just doing it wrong...cause they're all pretty cool templates...I just need to probablly work with them more.

    The secret for cutting with these is... you need to place cutter on cutting pad and draw toward you to get the blade in the right position before starting to cut on paper. Than lift up and place in opening and trace around shape... if it's heavy cardstock trace around twice.

    Try it again... for the basic shapes it's cool.

    OH Clarinda, you did it!! I'm with Taffy .... I couldn't use that thing to save my life and reading this reminded me that it was still sitting on a table where I had even put a piece of glass in hopes of making it work.....asked my hubby if he was up for a challenge (making that sucker cut something) and as I read to him your post, I tried it and it worked.
    So Taffy, don't give up....try it one more time like Clarinda said and hopefully it will work for you like it did for me!!
    Good Luck!!
