Good but there is a trick to it. Apr 03, 2011
By Laura Graham
I have wanted this punch for a couple months and I finally got it today. I now see that the reviews before me are right, it does punch a very small slot. The slots are 3/16th of an inch and here I am with all this great ribbon that is 3/8 of an inch. The only ribbon this punch is designed for is gift ribbon, the shinny stuff you curl with your scissors. I found that if you punch your edge you have a little over 3/8 of an inch to the edge of the paper. So you can flip over the punch, use it upside down and going back through and lining it up, you can punch a second time to make the slot almost double its original size. It takes a bit of practice but it can be done and even if your slots aren't exactly lined up, the ribbon covers the holes well. So, while it is a little extra work to get those great patterned 3/8 inch ribbon to work with it, it comes out nice after its done. Good luck ladies!

Ribbon Punch is terrible Apr 24, 2010
By Cathy, Florida
This ribbon punch is terrible. The holes are too small for any ribbon I can find. It says it works for 1/4" ribbon, but it doesn't. Don't waste your money.

Get the ribbon punch by Fiskers instead Feb 25, 2012
By Butterbug's Mom

For those looking for a ribbon punch get the one from Fiskers. It's easy to punch AND it works perfectly with 3/8" ribbon. The slots are also a little closer together than the Martha Stewart one. It's also cheaper at $11 from Staples.

Beautiful Outcome, Many Options Apr 12, 2012
By Elise Iran
I was bummed at first because the holes are small. They measure slightly over 1/8 in., but not as long as 1/4 in. So, you can thread a 1/8 in. ribbon, but I don't prefer this look because there is a slight bit of room left over in the hole (and I prefer to cover the entire hole to make it look 'clean'). So, I flipped the punch over (as described by a reviewer), and punched through the back and lengthened the holes to fit a 3/8 in. ribbon. It is not difficult to line up, and I do not have steady hands. Not tedious and even if not completely lined up straight the ribbon will cover holes. I have included photos of just a standard thread look (3/8 in. ribbon used). There are many possibilities on how you can use this punch. I haven't had time to play with it, but will try different threads out in the future.

BAD BUY Aug 19, 2009
By R. Nightingale
AT FIRST I THOUGHT THIS PRODUCT WOULD HAVE BEEN GREAT. WHEN I GOT IT, AND STARTED USING IT I QUICKLY REALIZED THAT I WASTED MONEY.
THE PUNCH CUT OUTS WERE TO SMALL TO FIT THE 1/4" RIBBON IT SAYS IT WOULD FIT. I BOUGHT RIBBON FROM AMAZON JUST TO GO WITH THE RIBBON THREAD PUNCH, BUT IT DIDN'T FIT.
THE GRID FOR SPACING DIDN'T LEAVE EVEN SPACES EITHER BETWEEN HOLES. SO IT WAS DIFFICULT TO GET EVEN SPACING THROUGHOUT.
