I need to make 12 boxes and now and this is the crap I get, slowed down the speed and the pressure because its not a thick paper by anymeans and tore up like this (note same thing happened with increased speed and pressure!)
So what do I change/?????

Hello Chantel- You may need to change your blade in your blade housing. Is the paper textured or smooth?

its smooth paper

I swore i just changed the blade not too long ago, but perhaps I should do that (and of course I can't locate a new one anywhere...thats means time to bundle up in freezing rain!)

Blade tip may have broken. I've had that happen a few times. It is the same blade (make sure it's not a deep cut blade though.. just the regular ones). When you say pressure, pressure via the machine or on the blade? If it's just regular card stock or lighter.. try a setting of 3 on the machine and 3 on the blade. Also watch to see if you're blade housing is dropping down and picking up.
