Product Review - Border Punches


There are so many crafting tools out there now that it can make your head spin! If you're anything like our Bread Basket designers everything new that comes out becomes a necessity.  So what do our designers NEED?  Border punches of course!  Our Daily Bread designs carries three of the big name brands for border punches - Martha Stewart, Fiskars and EK Success.

 

Some wonder how to get a perfectly even border and here's how:

 

Center your piece of cardstock on the border punch and push down on the lever.  Use the bottom edge of your palm to push down if using cardstock because it takes a little more muscle to punch out:


 

You'll notice a notch on punch.  That helps you see where to align your next series of punches to get an even border:


 

Place your first punch evenly over the printed area for perfect alignment.  Do this to one side first and then the other:


 

And there you have it, a perfectly even border on both ends:


 

It is the same procedure for all the border punches so it's easy peasy!

 

Still not sure if you NEED these handy tools?  We're sure these will change your mind!
