Default birds on a wire in'spire by Spellbinders

Has anybody out there purchased the cutting die called birds on a wire? If so can you or anyone tell me how to get these wires out at the beginning so I can get the whole string of birds on the wire out of the die? They are so small and I tried to just start by pulling out a bird first but no luck because they are down inside the die pretty deep. I would try waxpaper but the wires and birds are very small and I am afraid it will distort what the die cut should look like. I am using specialty paper. I have tried just about everything I can think of. I did order these from Paper Wishes. Thanks

Does the die have pokey-holes on the reverse side?

You might try wax paper or maybe you could get it out gently using a pick or paper pierce. I've seen that die and it's very tiny.

Maybe you could try the dryer sheet trick that Sam linked to the board.

Pam I've used wax paper on very very tiny cuts and it didn't distort anything at all - just on cardstock so not sure about specialty paper but just thought I'd throw that out there...

HOW FRUSTRATING! If you do make another attempt, maybe shim with extra card stock and perhaps the pressure will help in the release.

Waxed paper should be alright to use, or cut through several layers of foil to resharpen it? Then try the paper. I would have to say I would be tempted to try the dryer sheet technique Sam just shared with us. Karen Burniston is the queen of dies!

Linda! I didn't know you could cut aluminum foil to sharpen the die! Thanks for that tip!
