Love this new punch from We R Memory Keepers. I was able to take some older pattern paper that I was tired of and transform it into something brand new again. I really like that you can do the outer cut, inner cut or both. I even used the "scrap" that is cut off the outside edge of the paper as a border for another page.
I've waited patiently for this product since I tried it at CHA!
And it is better than I remember. Easy to use. I teach K-4th and they are all able to use this punch. My adult craft club members are lining up to borrow this punch. We have been designing cards and scrapbook layouts non-stop.
I love being able to use this on a variety of papers. It's easy to push. I like the clear visible on and off levers. I love sharing my products with the gals at the local crops! Fun and innovative!

They are big so storage takes thinking... mine takes a good 'push down' on the handle to cut. If you have wrist problems, as I do, you will want to do what I did: I hung the handle off the edge of table so when I punched down I could keep my wrist from bending up...hanging hand off the end of handle to keep wrist straight.

this product is fabulous. The only thing I have to complain about is the paper sometimes get stuck. I used a fabric texture and it took me an hour to pull apart to get the paper out. Otherwise, it super
This is my 2nd Lucky 8 Punch. My recommendations...don't get discouraged, it does take practice. Place the punch on a hard sturdy surface, waist level or a little lower, press firmly & quickly...works best for me.
I would not recommend this punch. Not easy to understand the different steps to complete punching the page.
Not worth the price I paid for it. I wish I could return it but opened plastic wrapping.
