Punches can be so tricky sometimes! I make a LOT of handcrafted greeting cards, and use a LOT of punches of various types. I tend to reuse the ones that punch the easiest -- and this one is getting a lot of use.

This one works well, and is fairly easy to punch. I've used it with heavy specialty paper (glitter card stock, for example), and much lighter patterned paper, and it works equally well for both -- the heavier paper takes a bit more pressure, of course, but it's not impossible.

THe square it punches is almost exactly 2" x 2" measuring the widest part of the flourish.

The bottom of this punch is open, so you can clearly see what you're punching, especially if you're trying to center a stamped sentiment or image.

Bottom line: good quality, cleanly cuts a variety of papers with reasonable effort.

I wanted to get a Christmas Tree punch and ordered one from Joann Crafts. It did not work at all and was smaller than I thought it would be. I returned it because it was defective. Then I saw the EK punch and ordered it. What a difference. It cuts very smoothly and was the exact size I wanted. I have been cutting up cola cans and using them with alcohol inks. This punch cuts the thin aluminum so well. Now, the only punches I will buy are the EK. (I now have 3 and counting.( Their design is so much better to use than Martha Stewart or Fiskars.

Nice design. Cut out measures 2.25 X 1.5625. Easy to punch. Yellow lock located at the bottom of punch for easy storage and doesn't take too much room...whole punch measures 3 X 5 inches.

First time purchasing EK Tools Punches and I am very happy. They punch consistently and cleanly. Great for use on cardstock paper for making tags, etc. I'd purchase again.

Middle-sized punch (top punch when looking at package, and closest the side you put the paper in) doesn't punch all the way.... then, it is stuck in a way you then cannot pull the paper out without ripping it. I would have even overlooked this, thinking it was probably a fluke, but then I ordered it another one direct from EK website when I found out the replacement through Amazon had an unknown date -- and guess what? SAME problem, even same spot on the punch -- now stuck sending two back. So if you plan to use the middle-sized punch, watch out. The largest-sized punch (middle one when looking at the label) cuts clean -- that's the one I need the most of the three shapes. But if you buy a three-shape punch, all three should work! Besides that, since it doesn't cut, you then have to rip the paper out because it is then stuck in the punch! Disappointed.

I got this punch because I like to make my own cards. However, I agree with the other reviewers that the top and bottom shapes are too small to be really useful. However, the middle shape is perfect for my purposes and I like the fact that the punch is so compact and easy to store.

The two small areas between the wings, and the antennae do not punch through. This means that once I punch it, i cannot get it out without ripping them off along with at least one wing. I was really excited about this purchase, and now i'm incredibly disappointed. I have older paper punches from this company that work great, but not so much anymore.

LOVE LOVE LOVE!!! This is a perfect-sized punch for basically all of the paper crafting that I do. The punch consistently creates clean, perfect cutouts with every type and weight of paper and cardstock I've tried! The only thing I could ask for is for EK Success to offer another size so I can buy that one too and vary up my designs. DEFINITELY A GOOD BUY! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

Check out the photos (they look different because I took them in different lighting, which I think helps show the overall product better).

Yay! Hope you get one too!

Works great. Really heavy duty. Sometimes the excess paper can get a little stuck inside after you punch, but it just takes a second to wiggle it out. Still five stars because the actual punching works very well.
