This is a great paper punch especially if you need to make a lot of one particular item. I used it to make leaves for a little Easter house roof and I needed a lot of leaves. If I had used leaf dies, I would have been cutting all day. With a punch it only takes a few minutes.
The punch works beautifully and cuts even thick cardstock (110 lb cardstock).
It does sound loud when you use it, so make sure it won't startle the baby or your pet.
I needed a "carpet" of leaves to have under pumpkins and gourds on a card I was making. They had to be small. I wanted different leaves in a variety of fall colors, and this punch was perfect! Easy to use, and I didn't even pinch my hand with it.
