  • Big Shot or Cuttlebug!? HELP!!

    Hello! I was just thinking about writing my christmas list and i really want to ask for a die cutter but i dont know which one! I'm stuck between a sizzix big shot and a cuttlebug! To start with i only want it for cutting out basic shapes circles, squares, letters that sort of thing- can anyone help and recommend?

    I don't know about Big Shot, but I bought a Cuttlebug a few weeks ago & I'm really pleased with it, it's easy to use, there's a good range of dies & you can also emboss with it, & get lovely crisp results.

    Louise88 is a good one to ask as she works in a craft shop that sells them, so she'll know more about the two.

      cuttlebug v big shot

      HI

      I would recommend the Big Shot. They have a wide range of dies such as ornaments, card blanks and decor dies. Also all the cuttlebug dies work in the big shot so you can have the best of both worlds.

        I had the same dilemma but decided to go for the Bigshot in the end for my stepdaughter. As vgbear says, all the dies for the other machines fit the Bigshot and it wasn't much more expensive than the Cuttlebug.
        This website seemed to have the best deals out of all I came across:

          You can use other dies in the Cuttlebug too, although the Big Shot are probably too big, that's the only downside with the Cuttlebug, that some of the dies are quite small (but I still lurve it )
