This punch should be in every scrappers supplies. It gives such a nice finish to corners. I use it sometimes to round outer corners of pages, but most commonly I use it to round one or two corners of layered accent papers. It makes all the difference between a nicely designed lo and a super looking lo. When I first got it I had a little trouble getting smooth cuts every time. I discovered that this is one punch which should always, always, always be used "upside down" so you can control your cut. Otherwise, you may end of with jagged edges. I strongly recommend it for all my friends, my friends to be, and my friends who I will never actually meet.

I have this medium corner rounder punch right by my drawing table so I can reach it anytime it's needed. It's part of a three-size corner punch group. The punches are strudy (too bad there isn't a picture of it here) and easy to use. Punching one piece of cardstock works best and "seating" the corner of the paper in the guides insures a good cut. I like that you can tell the corner sizes apart by the different colors of the punches. A must for versatile scrapbooking.

I use my EK Success corner rounder all the time. It's especially nice to use when I trim something with my straight edge trimmer and then the corners aren't perfectly even. I just use this corner rounder to cut off the corner tips and then feel better about the item I'm working on.
I'm very weird about alignment and things looking even. I can tell within seconds if something is off by even one millimeter. I'm just not satisfied until everything looks perfect.

I have bought 3 or more of these. My son keeps carrying them off. A basic corner punch is one of the best things to have in your supply kit. It's great to use on pictures to make them look more polished, On paper embellishments to make them really a part of the lo, not just laying there. All I can find in stores is the medium punch, I am going to buy a large one and maybe a small one from sb.com. It make everything unified, imo.

With this punch, even if you had nothing else other than paper, you can create really nice, clean, eye-pleasing layouts. I'm a beginner, and I think this is great for beginners to add to the first set of supplies they buy. It was the first new tool I used at my local scrapbook store, too, even before using glue. It's also relatively inexpensive.

When I was looking at buying a corner rounder punch, I was confused about the difference between the "small" and "big" ones. Now I know that refers to how sharp a corner your punch will give you and I think this "medium" punch is perfect for your regular corner rounding needs.

I thought I would use this little gem on a few photos but when I got it the possibilities were endless. I can clip photo corners I can edge my 12 X 12. Tags, ETc. I can give any of my cards and LOs a smoother feel. I love this little tool. It is a must have!!!!!
My first (and only for the moment) corner punch. I really like it and use it on almost every layout. Simple to use, and you can also remove a plastic piece to punch the edge of the paper (not only the corners) and create your own scalloped edge.
