I purchased this item apporximately 2 months ago and I Love it!! Can't imagine what I did without it!! So veristle and easy to use!! I use it all the time to punch holes, set eyelets and create wonderful tags! This reaches all over your 12 X12 pages with ease. The operation of the Big bite is smooth and creates clear, crisp, holes for adding eyelets or for adding an extra touch to any LO. I highly recommend this to any scraperholic!!!
