I have a couple of questions about punches. I bought one that is not a "punch around the page" one. Is it difficult to use this type to go around a corner? Any techniques I need to know? Also I really want the new french scroll one but Ms and AC Moore near me do not carry it. Does sb.com have Marth Stewart stuff on sale ever? The lady at Ms was totally unhelpful as to when they might get it.
I would be happy to get it at Ms with a coupon but the woman couldn't tell me how often they get the new ones added to their stock, or when they would get this particular one. And of course I am having a hard time waiting I want it now!
I had a few for months and couldn't get them to work right. THEN I found out the corner punch has "wings" that fan out. You need to make sure the paper fits in flush against both corners. Then make sure your designs match up. There are different parts of the design to match. After the 4 corners are done, the first punch with the border gets lines up with the pattern RIGHT next to where the punch is. After that, the design NEXT to that is used as a guide. If the paper is an odd size, sometimes the corner and border don't match up well.
Okay, so just read my instructions! I probably made it even MORE confusing!! Maybe check out YouTube for some demos!
