Why does my paper tear when I die-cut a rosette using T!m Holtz die in my sizzix?

We have a great trick for you from Tim Holtz himself! He told us that because the die cuts the perforations for you, it is more susceptible to tearing. So his trick is to put tissue tape on the back of the die to give it a bit more structure and should prevent it from tearing. We carry a bunch of Tim Holtz Tissue Tape in our stores and on the Annex. Hope this helps!
