I like the design of these Sizzix punches: they're smaller than other "large" punches but sturdy and easy to use. I've punched through some very thick cardstock with this one and have had no difficulties with it.
As for the packaging, I don't know what they were thinking when they went for the super-thick plastic and a clam-shell pack that can't be opened without heavy duty scissors. Anyway, if you buy one of these punches, just mind you don't cut yourself on the sharp edges of the plastic while you're trying to wrest the punch from from the packaging.

This paper punch "Juniper" helped me to complete my Christmas cards and they turned out just beautiful if I have to say myself.
The quality of the punch 5 stars and I will be able to use this for many years to come.
While I have the Sizzix-Tim Holtz Thinlits for greenery branches and sprigs. once cut in the Big Shot they are difficult to remove from the die and I have tried to use the die brush and wax paper, but still the cuts were difficult to remove and would rip or tear. But this punch is perfect. The cut just pops out. And it is quicker than running the dies through the Big Shot and fussing with the dies to dislodge the cut. Hoping there will be more sprigs and branches punches to come.
