I'm not sure I understand what you're looking for?
Do you mean doilys like on these projects?

I just buy doilies at the Dollar Store or Walmart; I've never used a punch to make them. I think Fiskars has punches where you can do the edges of round shapes similar to a doily, but I'm not sure.

Also Martha Stewart makes a doily circle punch. Not sure how big it is though.

Many people are using the MS corner punches around a circle. Here are instructions.

Thanks ladies.....Amy I'm looking for a punch...I'm not sure if they are called doily punches or circular punches I just don't like the ones I've looked at so far.

I had 2 cirular punches with decorative edges and they SUCKED. Couldn't get them to line up. Both broke. Just buy the doileys from the dollar store. Better value.

BTW - I have a semi-circular Fiskars punch and hate it.

I too just buy doilies at Michaels in the baking dept. They come in lots of sizes. I ink them and spray them to change the colors.
The cricut Mothers day cartridge has a doily design. I used it on this layout.
Some manufacturers make round lacey die cut papers. Check out the superstore under die cut papers.

There are also dies that look similar to doilies. Spellbinders' Medallions and some of the new dies are very nice.

What you're seeing might be medallion punching, you can google it and find videos.
