I was excited about this punch because it looked very useful for a variety of LO's and cards and such. I like the half circle punch out in each scallop shape and think that this could be used nicely with colors showing through them. I have also used it to create a paper "ribbon" strip that has the scallops punched along each edge. I have no problems lining this one up with the front grid, and it punches through very nicely.
I had to get this punch when I saw it introduced via photos from CHA. I used my Fiskars threading water punch all the time and I think this new punch has replaced it in my heart. I only used it on a small part of one of my layouts but I LOVE it. I cannot wait to use it for a whole border!!
I am really loving the Fiskars border punches and plan to collect them all if I have enough$$ lol.
I like this apron lace one it adds a different kind of look. You can keep on the top portion or cut it off for two affects with one punch. Its really cute and easy to use!
