I was excited about this punch because it looked very useful for a variety of LO's and cards and such. I like the half circle punch out in each scallop shape and think that this could be used nicely with colors showing through them. I have also used it to create a paper "ribbon" strip that has the scallops punched along each edge. I have no problems lining this one up with the front grid, and it punches through very nicely.

Oh, I have got to tell you this is such a versatile and easy to use punch, I almost always reach for this punch for all of my vintage projects, absolutely love the pretty borders when punched with this, and this is such an easy punch, punches through cardstock as well as thinner papers like smooth butter, and is very easy to line up!!!!!! One of my favorite punches of all time!!!
One of my most used punches! Love the quality of fiskar punches have never had a problem with any of mine and would highly recommend to someone who is looking to invest in a punch that is versatile enough to use on many layouts and cards, good investment will definately get your moneys worth with this one.
I had to get this punch when I saw it introduced via photos from CHA. I used my Fiskars threading water punch all the time and I think this new punch has replaced it in my heart. I only used it on a small part of one of my layouts but I LOVE it. I cannot wait to use it for a whole border!!

I am really loving the Fiskars border punches and plan to collect them all if I have enough$$ lol.
I like this apron lace one it adds a different kind of look. You can keep on the top portion or cut it off for two affects with one punch. Its really cute and easy to use!

I have been wanting this punch since I first began seeing it on the layouts in the gallery and was excited when it was in stock when I placed my order. I have used it on both sides of a strip of card stock and then put ribbon down the center between the scallops.

Whoever designed the shape for this border punch is definitely a genius! I've been using it all the time on both masculine and feminine layouts.
It gives a new twist to the usual scallop and leaves a wonderful finished look to any layout or card.

This is my go-to border punch. It's so versatile because it's pretty without being too feminine, so it can be easily used on masculine cards and pages. It's very easy to line up to create an even look. Can't live without it!

I used this in a layout the day I got it. Love it..goes with so many styles and I can't wait to use it for cardmaking. It's easy to use and punched through perfectly....now to just learn how to make a corner.

I absolutely LOVE this border punch. It adds such a pretty touch to my layouts and it's user-friendly. I keep reaching for it again and again every time I'm doing a layout. For me, it's a must-have tool.

I saw some layouts that specified they'd used this punch and I loved the way the lace looked. As soon as scrapbook.com had this in stock, I had to have it. I'm glad I bought it - it is wonderful!
I am a border punch fanatic and this one has quickly become a favorite of mine! Love the design - makes punching evenly very easy. Cuts through cardstock with ease! Awesome product!

I bought it in the US because i couldn't get it in the Netherlands anymore!
I just love it. I't great to use on a page but even greater to use in a minialbum...

I love to play around with border punches. This is my favorite. It seems to give just the right touch to my pages. It's not to frilly for pages about my boys.

Obviously a very pretty design...
I've found this punch to work better at punching through heavier weight cardstock than other brands. The only thing I don't like is that no matter how many times I've used this I still haven't figured out the trick to how many spaces to move the paper over to make the next punch - other designs are a lot easier to figure out.
I'm a big fan of border punches, but this is only my second Fiskars punch. I like the design a lot - it's gently feminine, not too intricate. The only reason I give it 4 stars instead of 5 is that it takes up more room than my EK Success punches, and space is at a premium for me.

The apron lace punch is a fun scallop design. It's easy to use and adds a pretty touch to any page. Because of the design, it's good for masculine or feminine pages. My only wish is that it was easier to punch around corners!

I love the way this border punch makes pages and cards more elegant, and a little "girly." Gave it 3 stars because it IS a little hard to make sure you line it up correctly. The trick is to punch using the "wrong" (back) side as a guide, and not the front grid. Otherwise, you may accidentally re-punch a loop, which will ruin the whole paper!

I love the design, however; it does not punch very easily. I have to have my husband do it. Even when I put my weight into it, it doesn't punch all the way through. I'm disappointed that it's so hard to use.
