Hello all,
I've had my mini since April and have made lots of cards. I love it. However, the problem I'm having is frustrating me. A lot of the paper I use is very thin, like typing paper and my cricut just rips and tears it. I've tried numerous differnt pressures, depths and speeds but to no avail. Can anyone help me with how to cut this thin paper?

I've cut thin paper with pressure at the lowest and blade depth at 1. Make sure your mat is clean (all left over tiny scraps scraped off). Also check your blade to make sure there is no paper stuck to it or inside of it. Your mat does need to be sticky enough so the paper is not pulled up by the blade when it picks up and moves to another location.

I think it is hit or miss whether or not it will cut.
