    Warped Cuttlebug plates

    I came across this idea for flattening warped Cuttlebug plates.

    Has anyone tried this?

    Certainly worth trying if your plate's really warped, can't do any harm.

    Well I tried it and it did flatten my warped B plates but it didn't really remove the tiny bits of paper embedded in the plates as some people have said.

    Would never have thought of doing that! I tend to turn my plates - top to bottom, back to front, side to side as I use them - they stay flat longer that way but still do bend eventually, so will give it a try.

    I want to try this just for the sheer fun of it. Hubby can't wait to give it a go!

    I never would have thought of doing this, but my plates are flat anyway as I turn the top plate over as soon as it starts to bend. It's totally cut up on both sides after several years, but still virtually flat as a pancake.

    I wonder if putting it in the sink with a kettle of boiling water poured over it would do similar - at least with the warping, if not to cooking/burning of the paper? Possibly less "dangerous?" But it is pretty amazing, the before and after....

    I followed this around 6 months ago for my very 'banana' shaped B plate and it worked beautifully. The only thing was that the bits of card didn't come off like in the photos but I think that's because my plate had been used by lots of different sized and shaped dies all over it and if you look at hers she seems to have used a similar die with black card, as if she was doing a large batch of cutting. However, a word of warning, you must use a glass container for the 'cooking' because flush with success I decided to do the same to my Big Shot plate which is bigger than the Cuttlebug one. So I put it in a metal pan as that is all I had that was big enough and it clearly got much hotter than the glass and it burned and melted one end of the plate!! Oh well we learn as we go on.....����

    And passing on mistakes is always a bonus for the rest of us.
    Thankyou.
