Ellison Die Cuts

The Children’s department offers patrons free access to two Ellison die cut machines. Ellison die cut machines use dies to punch shapes, letters, numbers, and nearly anything else you can think of out of paper. We have dozens of dies available, including letters (2" & 4"), numbers (2" & 4"), animals, shapes, nature, seasons, transportation, and more. Bring in your own paper and use as many dies as you like. As a safety precaution, we ask that no one under the age of 17 use the die cut machines. The Ellison die cut machines are available on a first-come-first-serve basis.

You can make a variety of items with the die cut machine. Here are a few ideas: 

  • Shamrock, Heart, Snowflake and Pumpkin Die-CutsScrapbook designs
