Good afternoon, (although its terrible weather here !) 

Postman delivered my Signature decorative indulgence dies this morning so I thought I would have a play.

What a terrible die to get rid of all the tiny confetti pieces stuck in the die. 

I have no problem with any of my other dies.  Tried the "grease proof paper " method - no difference. It takes ages to get all the tiny bits out of the die, I could throw it away right now. 

Anyone got any bright ideas. Don't want to buy the roller thing just for this die.

Someone said they use an old clean toothbrush to get the bits out of their dies

Replies, greatly appreciated. 

The card/paper seems to stay stuck in the die, have tried the toothbrush method this morning.  Still no luck, will have to have a lot more patience when I use the die (which will not be very often now !) 

Thanks.

We are going to King's Cross as part of the post wedding 'tour' next week. At Platform whatever and 3/4s I could get you a magic wand!

( The happy couple have planned their London wedding as a 'destination wedding' and booked a double decker to fill with drinkies and nibbles to tour London as a large proportion of guests are not UK based and might like to see some sights. What's wrong with Bali?HuhHuh? )

 My son and future wife saw a sample I made with this die and really liked it  and asked if I would make their 80 wedding party invitations with it  - I don't think I will have any hair left on my head when I've done them though !!
