I was told by a sales clerk at one of the sbs that I frequent it would only take two weeks after being ordered for this punch to arrive. The two weeks came and went. I decided to ask about the punch only to be told it had not been ordered and was not scheduled to be ordered.
That was that. I decided to order from the superstore at Scrapbook.com.
After much anticipation and way less than two weeks my package arrived at my doorstep. I opened my package, saw my punch, held it to my chest and squealed with delight.
I recently decided to take the plunge and buy my first Martha Stewart punch. I've liked them from a distance for ages but due to their cost I've always been put off. I bought this and couldn't be more delighted! The butterflies are absolutely beautiful-so detailed! Although I must say the punch is very heavy and a little stiff, it's worth the elbow work because I've now been able to colour co-ordinate the most gorgeous butterflies for my layouts! Couldn't be happier with this product, totally recommended!

This is my first Martha Stewart product. I was very hesitant to get it as it was more than I wanted to pay for the punch. However, needless to say I got this product and LOVE it! Not sure my scrapbooking supplies would be complete without it. I look forward to try more Martha Stewart products!

This butterfly punch is awesome!!! It is large and has great detail in it! They also have a smaller one to match(of which I own as well!!) If u dont want the detail u can simply use it as a stencil for a solid butterfly!!! Its a great punch ...u have to add this to ur punch collection!

I ordered this punch because I have seen it on so many projects and LOVE it! It is so nice and punches cleanly the small details. A little hard to punch at first so if you have any issues with strength in your hands, might not be the best punch for you.
Other than that...it's GREAT!

A punched butterfly is approximately 1 3/4" wide at the top and 1 1/2" inches tall. The detail of the punch is awesome and as mentioned previously, you can always use the negative left behind as is or as a template for cutting a plain butterfly.

This is definitely a must have! I have been using it on all my cards and have had so many compliments on it. The details are adorable on plain or patterned paper! It is cute as is OR add stickles, gems, or even doodle on it.

I LOVE this punch! It's easy and creates the perfect size butterfly for my pages. I either "smooch" them or "stickle" them and even "bling" them! They add a lot to my pages!

Now I can make my own butterflies with paper I choose to go with my layouts. Love this punch. The butterfly is just the right size and very delicate looking.
I love this punch & have already used it many times. I saw this in many of the projects & knew it was something that would complement my work.

I find this punch to be a bit harder to push down compared to the other MS punches I have, but the shape always comes out clean, waiting almost 3 years to get this aaas worth it.

This punch is very detailed and punches cleanly each time. The first few punches were difficult to get through my paper but after that, no problems. Definitely recommended!
I saw this used on a Tinkerbell/Fairies LO and loved it. I got it 40% off at my local craft store. The design is very cool. I am thinking of getting the heart like it.

I was hesitant for a while to invest in this puncher until I realized it was cheaper to buy it and make my own butterflies (in whatever shade my LO cried for) than keep on buying butterfly stickers. I'm so happy with my purchase! Easy to use, easy to customize with pearls or glitters, and adds a touch of softness and 3D to any LO if you only stick the body of the butterfly to the page and let the wings unglued!
This is a great punch! I can punch through three sheets of regular paper at once to get more shapes in a shorter amount of time. It also did great punching through thicker glittered paper. Nice crisp butterfly shape with lots of detail!
