This punch is a very versatile tool and a must have for any scrapper. The uses for it are endless. You can create titles, borders, backgrounds and go back to basics and make punch art. Paper Shapers thumb punches are my favorite to use because they don't hurt my hand. I like that I can turn the punch upside down to see exactly where on the paper it'll punch. Even my 9 year old daughter can handle this punch without any help from me.
