As I was walking along the scrapbook aisle the other day at a local craft store I saw a new Fiskars punch that really caught my eye. When I realized what this punch could do, I hurried over to the register, paid for my purchase, and drove home as fast as I could.
As soon as I started using the punch I realized that it was an excellent product; it is very well engineered. First off, this punch combines two punches into one. The levers on the top determine if you punch a corner, or part of the border, or maybe both. So it’s more portable and takes up less storage space. Secondly, the way that they have created a stair step platform has made aligning the paper with the punch unbelievably simple. No more pictures to follow. Just slide your paper to the left until it hits the next notch.
I was so thrilled with the way that this punch worked I decided to create a little video to show you how easy it is to use.
Here is a picture of my finished project first:
- Easy to use
- Beautiful borders for your papers
- Two punches in one
- Levers are on top and easy to push
- Hard to find at your local stores
- Only works perfectly with papers measured in 1 inch increments, though you can work with it so the imperfections are not noticeable.
- Not as many border designs as other border punch products
