First of all, I don't know why it's so hard to find this size plain square but it is. I do believe it's extremely ovepriced due to the shipping cost. I spend about the same for both. That's outrageous. For that reason, I like the item but will not purchase any more from your site.
this punch is perfect for making inchies(1x1 square decorated in anyway for page or cards) . i tried making inchies with out a punch and it was a mess. i love this punch it gives a nice clean finished edge. i don't really nest punch images, so this is another use for it.
