If you're looking to use this punch to make a large 10-1/2" x 11" doily circle out of a 12x12" piece of paper, then this punch is great for that. However, if you make the same mistake I did, and assume that you can make the same beautiful doily design in the smaller sizes, think again. This punch only makes a nice big doily in ONE size ONLY. For the smaller sizes that are suggested on the packaging, they are ONLY for the outer solid shape. BUT you will not end up with a perfect scallop-shaped circle or whatever that outer, solid shape starts out as at the largest size. As you go smaller, the shape gets really wonky and not something I have any interest in using. :(. When I bought this punch, I was under the impression that I could punch out doilies in 5 or 6 different sizes. once I got it home, and started using it, however, I found out soon enough how limited this punch really is. I was very disappointed and I returned it to the store (TJ Maxx) immediately for a refund. Even at $15, I thought that was too much to pay for a huge, bulky, heavy, hard-to-store tool that turned out to not be as versatile as I thought it to be....and only useful for one good thing - making huge doilies in only one size. Well technically three things... making a huge doily in one size, making a solid punched shape in a large size - only ONE size that isn't wonky, and the option where you can punch the inside out but not the outside (large size). You are not going to get the same results as you go smaller though. I wouldn't pay $15, much less $35-$40 + shipping online. I own and use quite a few WRMK tools, and generally love their products. Just not this one. I researched this product online, read the reviews, watched the videos, etc. before I made the decision to purchase a couple of the Lucky 8 punches, and I honestly thought I knew what I was getting. But none of the videos show what the punched pieces look like as you go smaller. :(
