I have the Retro punch in two other sizes, so when I ordered this one I expected it to be large. Well let me tell ya.....this thing is humongous!!! When I opened the box I was shocked at how BIG this punch was! It's bigger than my craft iron!!! Seriously I could use this as a door stopper!!! LOL
Now that I've used it, I'm really happy with it. The flowers are the perfect size for layering!! If you decide to order this, just be forewarned that this really is EXTRA LARGE!!! It is quickly becoming one of my favorite things!!
Sb.com is the only place I could find the extra large retro flower punch. I do have the other 3 smaller sizes and really wanted the extra large one. I just received it yesterday and have already used it on one of my pages. I just love it. It works so easy and cuts great thru patterned paper and card stock. I can turn it upside down to see the placement of the paper that I'm punching out.
For those without a cutting machine, punches are the next best thing! Cover one of these in stickles and layer behind a Prima and you have the prettiest blingy flowers ever! Cut out several and glue them together to add an inexpensive flower that contains depth. Paint them, stickle them, use patterned papers, the possibilities are endless!
I agree...this is HUMONGOUS...but the flower size is perfect. This is perfect if you love flowers on your layouts, would like to make your own flowers, like to coordinate your flowers with the papers you are using.... the flowers you make with punch are easy to curl to add dimension...You will use this a lot! and you will love it!
This punch is huge! Alot bigger than in looks in the picture. I have already gotten a ton of use out of it and I know will get a ton more. Well worth the money - then you can create a flower in any pattern or color you want instead of having to buy them all separately.
