most useful punch Dec 29, 2010
This is the most useful punch I own. I never liked the photo corners that are available because they are really boring (they only come in solid colors, and its hard to find ones with prints and patterns, and they are usually expensive). With this punch I can make my own corners with any paper I want, to match with the project I'm working on. I use it every time I'm working with cards or scrapbooking. The punch creates a folding line, where you fold the wings back, and then you put your photo into the corner, and then tape it together. Yes, there is that extra step of folding it then taping it, but it is so worth it knowing how much money you are saving by making your own unique corners. I really cannot say enough good things about it!

Worked great....for 5 minutes Jul 22, 2012
So i bought this to round the courners of my wedding program, which were in heavy-ish cardstock. It clearly says on the packageing that its for various papers as well as picture matting which is way thicker than what i was cutting. So the thing worked like a champ for around 10-15 programs then the metal cutting part just kinda bent and crapped out. I couldnt really bend in back due to the way it was constructed, the metal is just too soft for the job description. SO if youre just trying to cut plain ol' paper or only need like 5 of something, youre probably good but for substaintial paper or frequent use, look else. Sorry Martha, I tried to like it.

good source for custom photo corners, but requires some fussing Jan 05, 2013
By Chel Micheline
Overall, I'm fairly pleased with this punch- it's very sturdy, it punches out sharp photo corners from cardstock and regular weight paper with a perfectly creased/embossed folding line. It's essential for making your own "old-school" style photo corners (meaning, not the ones that are decoration, but corners that actually HOLD a photo in place on a page).
There's two things I don't like about the punch- the first is that because of the embossing aspect, the bottom of the punch isn't open like some of the other Martha Stewart punches. So if you want to get a precise area of paper in the punch for the corner, or use paper resourcefully to get the most punches from a sheet, you have to guesstimate where to punch.
Also, you have to put in pattered paper upside down to get the photo corner right side up (so that the embossed fold is in the right direction).
Also, the photo corners are fussy. The back edges don't quite meet up, so there's no easy way to seal the photo corners and adhere them to a background paper before inserting your photo into them. I wound up just leaving them flat, putting glue stick all over one side, and then folding them over the edge of the photo. It took more work than I expected.
Overall, I am pleased- I wanted to be able to do a little "old school" scrapbooking (mounting photos on a page) as well as inserting smaller pieces of artwork into a larger sketchbook, and this punch helps me do that.

Crisp and delicate Mar 06, 2011
By fan of quality products
If you're getting the Pansy Edger Punch, by all means, get this matching corner punch as well. I really like the result, especially for spring flower cards or scrapbooking pages. Very, very pretty, and the punches are solidly built.

Really Love Em Apr 29, 2011
I really love Martha Stewart products, particularily her punches. There is a slip enclosed with each punch that gives paper size dimensions to use....You must follow these to get that perfect. You may have to play with the punch and the around the page punch to get the hang of just where to line up the paper. With a little practice, you have a really cool outline idea. I use a lot of shaped flowers from Susan Tierney and Cottage Cuts die-cuts which are pansies. All of these together produce a really special product, and the people I give them to are always impressed and thankful for a hand-made product.
