As you can see in the photo below, we do not have a rectular-shaped die in this set so how did I achieve this?
Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies
Using the Big Shot Machine, place a Clear Cutting Pad over the Big Shot Platform followed by a piece of cardstock. Place the square-shaped die on top of the cardstock. Now here is the trick, when adding the 2nd Clear Cutting Pad over the die, make sure you do not cover the portion of the die at the very front. Only 3 sides of the die should be covered. See how the die is not covered on the 4th side by the clear plate in the photo above?
Run the cardstock and die through the Big Shot Machine but once you get to the end of the Clear Cutting Plate on the top, stop and reverse your direction so that the Big Shot goes backwards. Remove the die and the photo above shows you what your cardstock should look like. Notice that only 3 sides of the die were cut because we did not apply pressure to the 4th side.
Now place your die over the first cut shape so that it overlaps the cut a little.
Place the Clear Cutting Pad over the die but this time, do not place the cutting pad over to top portion of the die closest to the Big Shot Machine's handle. You can see in the photo where the top of the die is not covered by the Clear Cutting Pad. As you push the sandwich towards the handle, push until the top Clear Cutting Pad is firmly in place and crank through the Big Shot Machine. Your cardstock piece should look like this one when completed:
