You'll certainly have fun creating your own Memorydex cards with the 2 Slot Hole Punch from the Wanderlust Collection by Heidi Swapp. This two-hole punch measures 4" x 6.25" x 2.25" and creates two perfectly spaced square Memorydex holes. One punch is included in the package.
I purchased this as well as one of the sets of dies that have the tabs included. Both have an advantage. The hand punch allows you to cut out your own paper with a paper cutter and then leave entirely rectangle or curve the corners with a corner punch. But the hand punch will not cut laminated paper very well.
The die set purchased separately will cut out heavyweight paper laminated on one side, with no problem. But you will get the tabs. If you want tabs, no problem. They also have a set that has rounded corners, which I did not purchase, because I can do that with my crop-a-dile.
The size of paper that I copied from the die set is - 4 inches wide by 3 and 3/4 inches high. If you cut paper that size, the holes with this punch will line up perfectly centered. The holes from both this punch and the die set are exactly the same. Something I had wondered about until I received both.
Love them both!
The Hedi Swapp wanderlust two hope punch is pretty good for the price. I'm not too sure how long it will last. The plastic is light weight, but the design optimises strength on the high stress areas while punching. I bought the punch for my wife who has recently discovered rolodex card crafting, and wanted to make some of her own out of scrap paper and card stock. I would recommend this for anyone who is getting into the memorydex craft as the old fashioned punches that do the same job are between 60 and 70 dollars where the Hedi Swapp was only twenty something dollars. A good value for a useful tool in this craft.
