Here is a card with my sq sizzix die that I cut! I usually cut the paper at 5.5″x either 10.5″ or 11.0″ if you cut it longer you can always adjust but cutting some off. Always better to error on the cautious side. I then score at 4.25″ and then flip the card around so that I can place the die edge at approximately 4.25″
You can see how I cut my die with simple tin snips. In the background you can see a couple other cards that I made longer. I always tape the die down so that it doesn’t move! Any other questions about the dies- just let me know in the comments.
