Those waffer thin dies that are connected together... such as the ones from lawn fawn... Do you gals cut them apart? And if you do, to snip it so nothing is left or do you leave it? I hope this is clear, just don't know how to describe it.

I've cut a few QK dies apart. I try to cut them so that there aren't any burrs left, but there was a bit left. I don't remember what dies they were, but it was easier to use apart. Maybe a font?

So far I have kept my MFT and lawn fawn dies together. probably just too lazy to take apart.

I cut most of my Lawn Fawn dies apart. I keep them on magnet sheets so they stay together on there. I keep the alphabet sets together.

I take mine apart so I don't have to cut extra die cuts and waste paper. I store mine in a binder from crafter's compantion on magnetic sheets so they aren't going anywhere

I cut mine apart as well. Why cut something you don't need?

I thought I was supposed to cut them apart! My DH even gave me a wire cutting tool especially for that AND cutting my binding wires, it is different than most you see for that purpose.

But yes, I do cut them apart and keep them on magnet sheets in tiny drawers in a Sterilite "chest".

Even if you keep them together, can't you just place a small piece of paper at the piece you want a cut of, so you're not making wasted cuts? Or am I missing something? I'd think washi tape would be good for this, but I'm considering the magnetic plate for just this reason....

Gemgirl- your missing anything. I cut the paper down to size and place washi tape on it so it went move.
