But do you have any idea how much it costs to ship one of those old cast iron beauties? Sheesh! 

So when Holly told me that there was an affordable and commercially available letterpress machine from Lifestyle Crafts, I nearly flipped my lid!

Not only does the machine do letterpress, but it doubles as a die-cutter. I enjoyed playing around with this fabulous party flag die:

In my humble opinion, the machine is worth it for the fry box cutting capability alone!
