We moved recently, and I lost my cutting plate and my platform for my sizzix big shot. I got Sizzix extended cutting pads with no problem, but I've had trouble finding an extended cutting platform in my Michaels stores.

Today I went to the Ms that is 40 minutes away, and they didn't have the platform, either. But they had a huge stock of Cuttlebug plAtforms and plates. I did some checking, and the best I could come u with is that the Cuttlebug platform will work. I have QK dies, so I got a Cuttlebug plate that seems to be a shim for the QK dies in the Cuttlebug.

Anyone know if this will work? We are running errands and I'm unable to try it out for a bit.

They will work. My cuttlefish died and I had lots of plates left over and I use them all the time

I use my Cuttlebug plates in my Big Kick all the time, and they work fine. I just like them better than the platform that came with the Big Kick.

The Big Kick and Big Shot are essentially the same machine with cosmetic differences.

Thank you! I'm so excited! I haven't been able to do any die-cutting for months!!

I tried to research it on my phone while we were at Ms, but my DD kept bugging me to go to the Rainbow Loom stuff. She ran out of some colors, so it was a crafting emergency.
