How to remove die cuts from intricate Spellbinders dies without tearing the paper

I recently bought a Bigshot so I'm still a newbie. The first time I tried cutting with my newly acquired Spellbinders die "Labels 42", my paper would stay stuck in the intricate shapes especially in the corners and would tear while trying to take it out. My paper was good quality, so how disappointing was that!

I read somewhere that placing waxed paper between your paper and die solves the problem - the design pops right out! So I decided to give it a try... and it works!

This is probably old news to experienced die cutters, but I was so thrilled I decided to post a video for other newbies like me :-)
