Ellison SuperStar Die Cut Machine
This post may contain affiliate links, view our disclosure policy for details.
Unfortunately our awesome giveaway from Ellison Education has ended long ago but don’t let that deter you! I absolutely LOVE my SuperStar die machine because it’s portable, sturdy, and an affordable alternative to other fancy die cut machines. It is a fantastic choice for teachers not only because of the reasonable price but also because it’s a great item that students can help you use in the classroom!
Plus you can use it to cut everything from paper to felt, fabric and even sandpaper! I use it for everything from school stuff, kids activities and crafts and scrapbooking! It’s a no fuss system that requires no maintenance and has a TON of die choices! I’ve been working with Ellison that past year and a half or so and am so thankful for the opportunity to have fun creating activities and lessons using their products!
Below you can check out some of the awesome projects I and other bloggers have been creating with this machine!
Fall Leaf Wreath Paper Plate Craft
Pirate Map Classroom Incentive
School themed Reading Bookmarks
4 Seasons Apple Tree
Around the GLOBE Geography Game
Zoo Animal Masks
Peek a Boo Organs
Solar System Sensory Flashcards
Find Ellison on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram & YouTube!

I would love to win this! I’m a new teacher & it would be great to have! I would probably choose the panda, the set of 4 badges, & seahorse!!!

Would love to donate this to the school I work in! They need new die cuts!
We really need this at our school. Our district is big so our “teacher lab” is 45 mins away from our school and we hardly have time to travel over and get things done. We need it to start decorating for winter graduation. We work for Alternative Education where students have their last chance to graduate because they have been incarcerated or expelled from their schools. They deserve a second chance.
It’s always great to get holiday dies for bulletin boards!

Would love to have this for working with my preschoolers. All the basic shapes would help with simple art projects!
I’d love to win one and just to have basic dies– shapes, trees,& etc — no White House stuff

I would use them all. If I had to pick one, I would definitely get the bookmarks. I just got my students to buy into reading, and they love using bookmarks.
I could do so much with this! Not only am I a teacher, I also love to craft & have a side business making custom birthday banners and decor that I’m trying to get off the ground.
I would get the 3-D Barn, cow, cat, dog, pig and rabbit set. It would be great as an Ag teacher to be able to have plenty of die cuts of animals that we frequently study.

I would love one to help me decorate my bulletin board!
I would love the holiday ones. Really anything would be awesome for teaching my toddler! 🙂
i am a Principal at a private non profit school that has infants through 6th grade. We cater to working parents/guardians.

This would be an excellent resource at our school!

I would be glad to have any of the choices. But I could see the gift boxes, gingerbread man and happy faces come in handy.
Choosing a favorite die would be like choosing only one classroom library book to share with your students – nearly impossible! They are all fantastic and useful in the right situation. This is a great giveaway. Good luck, everyone!
I would love to stock up on holiday ones. This would help so much in the classroom.
I would love to have one of these to use in my classroom. I would definitely like the basic shapes for patterning but also love all the holiday diecuts!
