to try the new Fiskers border punches!!! I've picked 'em up and thought, "Na, I don't think I'd use it" I bought one today and I can't believe it took me so long to try it! They are so cool. I can't wait to get more of them. The next one I want is the one you can weave the ribbon through.

If anyone is thinking about it I would get it. And Target has them for half the price they were at M's.

I have loved the border punches since they first came out. I have all the originals and now I'm buying the latest ones too. They are so much fun to play with! Glad you've become a convert!!

Here are three of my favorites:

Have you seen the new Ek Success ones? They lay flatter than the Fiskars and they have the one that punches out the edge that looks like you tore it out of a notebook! I love ALL border punches: Fiskars , Ek Success , Martha Stewart...love em' all

IF you think those are cool, what until you try the Ek Success ones!!

They show pictures of the punches here. The clip closed and are super easy to store.

I have one that I hardly ever used,,,,,lol, until today I was working on my mini-bag-album that's not made of bags, and it came in PERFECTLY handy for some adorable edging for my pockets that I made,,,very victorian looking,,,I love it!! I think I'll be using it more for my LO's where there's a victorian feel! And maybe I'll buy some more for a different feel,,,,

They are awesome! Staples has them for 11.99 regular price which is way cheaper than Ms or LSS's (usually)

Ooooo....Fiskateers...I like that. I'm going to add that to my signature line.

Michelle, thats another one I want. I came home and put together a lo in no time flat with the one I have. I think it's called Sunburst.

I have the threading water, diamond and the Ek Success binding edge punch. I love them and use them all. The only new one I would consider would be a lacey one, maybe a martha stewart one.

I have about 3 of the border punches and I love them. I really like that "postage stamp" edgy one. Hopefully M's will have them so I can use my 40% coupon.

Congratulations! I love my Fiskars Border Punches. I just posted Fiskars Friday (a demonstration of Fiskars tools) on my blog and it is about some fun with your Border punch. Let me know if you like.

That's right I forgot they started today! I may have to head on over there while the kiddos are in school. Although I'm suppose to be working. I really shouldn't go until I hit my daily word count. But then if I do that I will miss out on the fun. Oh, what to do, what to do? LOL
