What is the secret to the punch around the page punches? I have the butterfly punch around the page. I understand the concept of lining it up. Sometimes it will come out perfectly meeting the corners, and sometimes it doesn't. I'm sure it has to do with the size paper you use, but I can't figure out what sizes those are. It doesn't work with my 6" x 6" paper.

They are out of the butterfly punch here, so I linked to the daisy punch around the page. I would appreciate any suggestions as this is very frustrating.

If you google MS around the page instructions, you will find the instructions (if you don't have them).

Looking at them, it does not look like the punch fits 6 inches. They have 5 inches and 6.75 inches.

I think you have keep to the measurements that fit a whole edge punch and then those line up with a corner punch.

I have a couple but honestly though, I have only used one or the other, not around the page yet. Must try that out soon.

Yes, it only works with certain dimensions of paper. There's a how-to sheet here: http://images.marthastewart.com/images/channel/corpor at... (if that doesn't work, follow the link from here: http://www.marthastewart.com/264644/tips-for-our-p unch-... )

Jane and Aquabunny, thank you so much! I'm printing the instructions and keeping them with the punches. I imagine I got the instructions but just thought they were instructions for cards so didn't pay attention to them. I'm usually so good about reading instructions. I thought it worked with other sizes of paper, too. I'm glad this is figured out now.

Thank you Linda. That was a great video. It clearly explained that it only did certain paper sizes. When I've seen them shown on HSN they didn't explain this at all.

The paper has to be a certain size. Took me quite a while to figure that one out! It's amazing that they came with directions and I didn't bother to read them! LOL
