I like this even better than the SU! border punch b/c of the holes. I can't believe how many other (more difficult) ways I was making scalloped punches before this! The only downside is that it takes a little pre-planning if you want to carry the border to meet at a corner. It's do-able, though, just make sure the hole at the end (at the corner) is at 1/2 inch from the other edge (around the corner), that way when you turn the corner and start punching the adjacent edge, the holes will line up. Practice on scraps, first. Also, there is no receptacle that collects the punched out holes, so neat freaks be forewarned, you'll get some confetti action afterwards.
I have been looking for this punch for some time now, but it was always sold out. I got lucky because a friend found it for me at a local Michael's. Apparently, it was the last one because they're always high in demand! This has to be my new favorite scalloped edge punch! It makes scalloped edge paper when you want to use it on a project. The scallops came out a little smaller than I thought they would, but even still it comes out really cute! You don't have to push down on the lever very hard, so it punches without that much resistance. If you're looking for a good priced punch definitely check this one out. I promise you'll use it way more than once!

I waited such a long time to get this threading water punch, definitely worth the wait! Now I can't put it down! absolutely
loving the scalloped edges and the small circles! I have used mine for card making as well as scrapbook pages, I even used this punch to do a pretty edge at the bottom of a letter I wrote my mom! She thought that to be so clever!
Also have threaded embroidery thread through the holes, and ribbon! Have also used with brads alternating in the holes, really cute! Love how I can make a plain border into a piece of art! I don't know who thought up this punch, but definitely one of the best!
Such an incredible purchase!! I'm so glad I finally bought this punch, it is such a versatile product! I love seeing all the ways everyone uses this punch... it seems like the perfect accent to just about every page. The scallops are so cute, but could very easily go well on a masculine page. I love how there are so many possibilities when it comes to putting things in the holes or weaving ribbon through them! I can't wait to see all the things I can come up with now that I have this wonderful punch!

I'm so happy that Fiskars came out with this punch. I love the scalloped edge look and the holes are such a great accent. The quality of the punch is wonderful. I used it on Christmas cards yesterday and I couldn't be more pleased with the outcome. This is a great punch. You have to do a little pre-planning if you want to use it to go all the way around your paper, but the look is so worth it. I'd love it if Fiskars would come out with a circle version of this design!

I have been so anxious to get my hands on one of these, but it took me awhile due to their extreme popularity. When I finally got one I was so excited, and have not been disappointed! I love how much this border adds to my layouts--it looks like you did something really fancy, but it is sooo easy! I am so glad that Fiskars came up with this handy new tool--I LOVE it! I am now thinking that I should try out some of the other border punches that Fiskars has to offer.
Every time I would try to find this border punch, it would be sold out . . . I finally found it at my LSS 3 months ago and I'm absolutely loving it! I use it on many of my layouts and cards and have threaded ribbon through the holes at times. It's so versatile and very easy to use . . . I've used other brands of border punches before and was unhappy with the results. I'd definitely recommend this border punch to everyone! It was definitely worth the wait!
This has got to be one of my best purchases it gives endless possibilities to border either photos' or random artistic effects on layouts. With the era of the 'bling', it also looks great with matching or alternating bling, in each hole.. It is possible to also double layer the border, so the 2nd layer shows through 1st row of holes and the 2nd row of holes sits nicely under the scallop edge. Easy to extend along 12 X 12 " edge.

This is by far the best...or one of the best...scrapbook purchases I've made. I use this on almost every page. haha. That might wear off after a while...but I love it. It can be funky or elegant. To do complete page borders you have to line it up and it takes some work, but its EASY and you cant even tell where you stop/start. Corners take a bit of work...but it looks soo good once you get it figured out! I LOVE THIS PUNCH!

When I saw layouts with this border, I always wondered how people did it and I figured I could never attempt to draw the scallops, cut them and then punch the little holes in as to where it looks perfect.... Weeeell, I finally discovered this punch and the secret is out of the bag! I look forward to use this punch over and over and it is so easy to line up the paper to create a perfect border! Thank you Fiskars!
