Impulse Purchase Jul 14, 2012
I saw this on sale here on Amazon, fell in love with the results in the picture and added it to my cart. When I got it I played around with it a bunch and I couldn't quite get anything to line up the way it should, there was always an extra space somewhere around the border. The corner punch was fine.
So I read the directions and saw that
"to create one continuous die-cut border, Punch your corners first and then then use the edge punch to connect the pattern from corner to corner using the guides printed on the tool's wings. Punches can be used separately"
Just an FYI:
"The page MUST BE A COMBINATION OF ANY TWO OF THE FOLLOWING MEASUREMENTS":
4" , 6" , 8" , 10" , 12"
Which isn't really an inconvenience, I'm just glad I know so that I don't end up making a card or whatever look like crap. (This is also my first border punch, so don't judge me monkey)

Lovely design Feb 11, 2011
By L. Teo
Well-designed punch set. Fun to use and very pretty square/rectangle 'doily' look. Do make sure you are not punching on heavy cardstock. It still works but you will need a lot of punching power. As with most craft products, it's better to play with some scraps & see how it works best for you.

Martha Stewart wild flowers punch May 04, 2011
This is a beautiful punch and I love using it. She really outdid herself with this one. Several of my friends have purchased it after they saw how beautiful it is

Eyelet Lace Punch Review Jul 20, 2010
By Joan NIchols
This punch is versatile for both scrapbooking as well as card making. Additionally, if you cut a 1" strip of paper, punch all one side, then turn the paper around, realign it in the punch and punch all down the other side of the strip of paper, you can create a beautiful border. This is a trick I have seen on T.V. and it truly works for many of the MS punches. Enjoy!

Very detailed and pretty Mar 05, 2011
By fan of quality products
If at first you don't succeed -- re-read the instructions. Once I did that and realized that the corner punch has wings that need to be opened for proper alignment, everything came out perfect. I'm mentioning my initial goof because I've read somewhere else that some people have trouble with the alignment, and this could be the reason. Paper size must also be followed accurately when punching all the way around. Once these two issues are resolved, these combo edge punches are simply amazing and easy and fun to use. I agree with a previous reviewer, quality of MS punches is very high.
