We’re sharing an unboxing of the Tim Holtz Sidekick and doing a demonstration of this amazing die cutting machine. It’s tiny but doesn’t lack any of the cutting pressure of a larger die cutter, like the Sizzix Big Shot. The Sidekick Starter Kit includes 1 Framelits die, 11 Thinlits dies, 1 small Texture Fades Embossing Folder and 6 Stamps! You can have a play as soon as you open the box.
The Tim Holtz Sidekick weighs 2 lbs and is 4 3/4 inches tall. Its smaller size makes it perfect for on-the-go crafting. Do you attend workshops or craft meet ups? Or maybe you need a small machine on your desk for your smaller dies? Just think how much easier it would be to pull this machine from your drawer!
Don’t be discouraged by the size. This machine can die-cut and emboss any dies and folders measuring up to 2.5 inches wide. Also Tim’s Sidekick works with many of his previous Framelits and Thinlits releases. Watch the complete unboxing video below for a closer look at the machine and to see how the vacuum seal works:
