What Is a Lucky 8 Punch?
In January of 2012 there was a lot of buzz about the Lucky 8 border punches. This great new scrapbooking tool had made it easy to make both an outside (edge) cuts as well as an (inside) detail cut. Offering the most flexibility you can easily punch the edge, just the interior detail, or both at the same time. The Lucky 8 Punch is not a light weight or small tool. It measures 8 inches wide by 8 inches long by 4 tall, and weighs approximately 2 pounds. There are currently twelve Lucky 8 punches on the market you can easily cut unique designs.
While you don’t have to punch all eight times even just cutting the 4 outside cuts you have a decorative shaped paper, that will be sure to stand out in any scrapbook. These punches were not only designed to allow the user to cut decorative unique sheets of paper but to simplify your scrapbooking, by allowing you to create corners and borders instantly.
Can I Use This As a Border Punch?
