First of all, I was so pleased that my Daisy Punch arrived in only a couple of days! I was eager to try it, so I used it to make a friend's birthday card. The punch worked very well for me. I used some narrow ribbon to weave over and under the vertical 'bars' in the border, and it looked really nice. I offered to share my new punch with my card-making friends.
I, also, purchased the Noteworthy border punch to use on cards. I made a sample bunch, and it worked fine. I will use this punch for card for my niece and a teacher friend who love music.
I just received this today! I'm super excited! I tested it on some scraps I had and they were totally awesome - meaning it was easy to use and to change the punch, not to mention that the borders are totally cute! I love how they store as well, since you can stack the punches on top of each other!
I ordered the started set as well as several of the other border punches & LOVE them. I have a number of the old Fiskars border punches and they take up SO much space to store. I was pleasantly suprised to find that the punches have little groves so that they are stackable. What a great idea!!!
I love this border punch system! The cartridges stack to store easily and I only had to buy one handle part. The design that comes with the starter set is so fun to weave ribbon through for a special look.
I purchased this because it was compact and offered great pattern options. I have only tested it. My initial impression is that it cuts fine but I will have to pay close attention to ensure the cuts line up. I do wish the with of the cut were larger. Any ribbon that is weaved would have to be less than a 1/4 of an inch wide.
I like this new border punch - the removable cartridges are a terrific idea and they are easy to use. The Daisy Chain cartridge is my new all time favourite! Looks wonderful with woven ribbon or paper tape!
