I bought this on the special $8.99 offer and I love it! It's super easy to use. The scallops look great and cut smoothly without jagged edges on the paper. I took a chance and bought another border punch at the same time and I'm glad I did. I love both of them!
I really like my new Fiskars Scallop Border punch, and I would recommend it to a friend. However, I did think it was going to be a little bigger, but it still serves a purpose. I would have given this five stars, but it can be just a little hard to line up for a perfect border.
I am thrilled to have a complimentary punch to my Threading Water punch. I am in love with the Fiskars border punches and this makes it so very simple to create the borders I love on my cards. How wonderful that Fiskars has come out with a scallop punch with holes as well as without. Thanks Fiskars
I love this border punch! It's so easy to use, and it adds that extra little flair without overwhelming your project. I would recommend practicing on scrap paper until you get the hang of it though!
All in all this is the greatest punch I have (so far!).

Since scallops are so popular right now, I wanted a simple to operate tool for adding this trim to cards and albums. The Fiskars Border Punch is easy to use and makes perfect scallops every time. Great purchase--I'm sure it will be used frequently.
I found this punch recently and just used it on a card! I love that the scallops are the same size of the threading water punch, but without the holes. Very easy to use and to line up to continue punching an entire sheet of paper!

I wanted just a plain scalloped punch and looked and looked...and here it was all the time..a good old Fiskars scalloped border punch at good old SB.com!
I've already used it several time and just it a couple weeks ago.

Loved the 40% off offer. i was thinking of buying this style punch from SU but with the 40% off deal it was much cheaper to get the fiskars. I love it. Punches clean and lining up the paper is so simple.

I purchased the Scallop Sentiment Border Punch to use on my daughter wedding invitations. After using it a few times it was easy to learn where to set your paper for the next punch so the scallop pattern went across the whole piece of paper. This is a easy, fast and simple tool to use. I plan on purchasing the other border punch patterns also. Looking forward to using it for my cards and scrap booking.
I really like that Fiskars came out with a "plain Jane" scallop tool. It's great for making scallop borders on any piece of paper. My only wish is that it was easier to do corners!

I bought the Fiskars border punch because it was on sale and even with the shipping it was cheaper than the EK Success border punch sold by Stampin' Up. I should have spent the extra money. Yes, this punch does the job, but it's plastic punch handle is a bit awkward to use and the punch feels cheap. The EK Success punch is heavier and seemed to handle better. I don't know how this punch will handle a lot of use as it is a new purchase. If you have the extra funds, buy the EK Success punch. It may be a personal preference, but that punch seems to be sturdier. Time will tell. Who knows, maybe in a year I may change my opinion about this Fiskars punch.
I am just getting into border punches and this was my first one. I bought it because it was on sale and I kept seeing pages done with scalloped edges and wanted to enjoy the possiblity. It works well and is easy to use. I just wish I would have thought about it first and gotten one that is a little more decorative, I feel I would enjoy those more then this one. I have used this though and turned out GREAT! A good starting place to begin with border punches
I had been aching to try one of these new border punches from Fiskars since May Flaum is always raving about them so when scrapbook.com put this one on sale I jumped at it. It's a nice little punch and I really wish I could give it five stars but from time to time it does have some issues with lining up so you have to be extra attentive.
I purchased this border punch thinking that the scallops would be larger. It works wonderfully it's just that I wanted larger scallops. I would however recomment this punch or any other Fiskars punches. They are the best.
It jammed on one piece of paper the first time I used it and it's made of such crappy metal that I'd likely break it by forcing it back open. I prefer not to send it to Fiskars for warranty replacement as I would just get the same thing back. I will chalk the expense to experience and shop for a better trimmer.
I expect much better quality from the Fiskars brand.
Fiskars usually puts out quality products, and I have some of their old border punches that are great, but after using this punch I was ready to throw it out. I'll pay extra to buy "Marth Stewert" punches next time.
