Say hello to Creative Play with Sizzix!


Following on from the success of the Ellison Education line of die-cutting machines, in 2001 Ellison created Sizzix®. Sizzix is now a recognized market pioneer and global leader of die-cutting machines and making products developed for the arts & crafts industry.

The Sizzix line of products include a wide range of different die-cutting machines, supported by an extensive and innovative collection of dies, tools and making essentials.

Sizzix enables arts and crafts enthusiasts to enjoy die-cutting in their own home with the Big Shot® line of die-cutting machines. The Sizzix brand is a staple for makers embracing a variety of creative pursuits and we love to see people from an early age getting involved in the making trend! As you will be well aware, engaging children in hands-on learning is beneficial to their development, both in the classroom and at home…. and the Big Shot machine is the perfect tool for this.

Our Big Shot machine is a 6” wide opening machine that can be easily transported around your school or club to be utilised by children (with adult supervision for under 13 years) encouraging their creative side. Whether it’s making a Mother’s Day card, Christmas gift to take home, or helping to create fun classroom decorations, we have Bigz designs suitable for all occasions and seasonal events. 



In addition to using Bigz steel-rule dies, the Big Shot machines come with an additional platform enabling you to use Sizzix wafer-thin metal dies, perfect for papercrafting. These dies (known as Thinlits and Framelits) allow you to cut paper, thin card, metallic foil and vellum. They are also perfect for framing and cropping photos and sentiments.

The Sizzix Big Shot will soon be available for Ellison Education customers to use in the classroom, joining many parents who already use it in the home environment. It’s the perfect system for a whole range of making activities for children. To find out more visit the Sizzix website and discover creative play with Sizzix (
