Almost perfect! Sep 09, 2011
By Charity Crabtree
The puncher creates a very nice image, and I can even cut out the punched part and use it for a silhouette, which is an exciting (and hoped for) bonus.
The problem arises when I try to create a seamless edge made up of the birds on a wire. I follow the directions and the guidelines, but since I'm trying to line up a tiny wire with a tiny wire, it is very difficult to get a seamless wire.
Also, to point out the obvious, please note that you can only get the birds on the wire at the top of the paper - they will be upside down at the bottom. It makes sense but I didn't think about it when I ordered it. I was thinking I would be able to just have birds on the bottom edge of the paper. Silly me.
Overall, though, I'm very happy with it. The design is very cute and the punch is consistent.

Great design... Sep 04, 2012
I kept checking my local craft stores hoping that this punch would show up in their inventory. I wanted to see it in person, and possibly buy it on sale (or with a coupon).
It's the one design that never showed up.
I find it difficult to spend $15 on a paper punch of any kind, but I've wanted this one for a long time. Not long ago I purchased a larger edge punch that works very well, so I finally decided to take the plunge with this one.
This punch offers a very crisp image (I've had many that do not even when brand new), is easy to use, and I love the fact that it has a guideline for continuous punching across the page.
That said, I also have some problems with punching a seamless design, but I'm hoping that will get better with practice. For most of my crafting needs I'll be punching out individual pieces and using those on other things.

wish it were the other way around May 24, 2013
you cant really do a bottom edge with this punch unless you use a separate peice of paper and add it as a strip along the bottom -the birds will be upside down otherwise. But i do like the design and find that it is verstatile - can be fun card or you can make it classic for a sympathy card.

Beautiful Punch Feb 13, 2011
By Crystal L. Williams
Like all other MS punches this one is beautiful. I've completed several scrapbook pages using this punch and have received lots of compliments. It's a keeper!

birds on a wire edge punch Oct 09, 2013
By Molly's mom
This product was received quickly and was as promised. I love this punch. I didn't think I would use it as much as I do. I just love driving down the road and seeing birds all over the wires so I started taking pictures of it after I got this punch. And I use it on my mini albums and cards. I would recommend this punch to all bird lovers.
