I need to cut the 2 1/2 inch triangles on the small value die, which is in the middle of the 4 inch and 2 inch square.

That is the only one I need to cut.

Anyone have any tips/advice on how best to do this?

the only way to do it is to cut small squares and place them.  or cut a strip and fold and place on the die.  Thats how I cut some leaves for my BOM.

Debbie,

When I have a die like that one, with 3 different sizes, I measure the one that I want (2 1/2), add a seam allowance to it(3"), then cut a strip of fabric that size (3"). then I accordian fold the fabric over the one that I wanted and send through the Accuquilt. I made the mistake of sending more than 6 through at a time on the center of the hexagon die and it bent the blades, so you may have to clip your strip!
