I just got back into Sbing and my favorite new tool is my border punches. I'm not new to them and used them some when I stopped Sbing several years ago, but now the selections are so much better. When I was last Sbing about the only company that made them was Fiskars. Now I'm addicted to the EK. Success large edge punches. I also love the we r memories 8 in one punch and my Martha Stewart all around the page punch. I'd love to buy some more of both of these but I have to wait for some more good sales. I'm making a wedding sb and find I'm using them on about every page. What about you?

I have a punch listing on Craig's list. I jumped on the punch band wagon awhile back. I realized that I don't use them to often. Punches Let me know if your interested in them.

Funny I should see this post now, as creating a straight edge border punch design is what swayed me to get Martha Stewart's new circular doily creator that debuted on HSN yesterday.

My fave border punches are "Threading Water" by EK Success and "Lace Doily" and "Floral Vine" by Martha.

I love threading water and the notebook edge one. I want to get a postage stamp edging one and a zigzag, too.

Maybe a doily type one for baby girl.

I just bought the Flourish Lace MS punch yesterday. I border punches. I am going to check out the borderabilities that Spellbinder makes. They look pretty cool and they are flat so storage isn't a problem.

My favorites are the plane old scallop edge and the notebook.

I have a drawer full and rarely think of using them. Why in the world did I buy one everyday last week with my Js coupon (used it at Ms)?

I have quite a few but tend to stick with the same ones more often than not. Fiskars Scalloped edge, Fiskars Upper Crest, EK Double Embossed Dotted Lace(which doesn't look at all like what it sounds like), and EK Bracket Edger. Those are all basically alike, the EK are just bigger.

Glad you brought this up. I think I'll challenge myself to use at least half of my border punch stash in my DD.

I still love my simple scallop edge as well as the binder edge probably two that are used the most.

I love this thread. I love border punches and wish there were more out there now.

My two favorites are both by EK Success - they are extra large scallops with embossing on them. LOVE them!

I can't possibly choose a favorite. I LOVE border punches and especially PATP punches.

Love them. My fav is probably the EK Success large scallop with the embossed dots that doesn't really emboss them (the one GG uses) followed by threading water, postage stamp edge and notebook edge.

I love EK success and MS deep edge punches. My favourite is always my latest acquisition, but I do keep using the old ones. I really enjoyed using the EK deep edge bat flourish this halloween, but for everyday stuff, I use the pretty MS ones more.

I use a scallop and notebook edge ones the most. I have several variations of scallops.

I just used my Martha Stewart jack-o-lantern one on a layout. I don't have many theme-y ones but I like that one and MS's Drippy Goo (I think it's called).

I have quite a few border punches but I use them a lot.
