These paper punches made by plaid are quite nice. They are good for making your own confetti or my son just loves to play with them and punch things out here and there. These of course are christmas designs and when punched out make a nice shape that you are able to see what it is clearly, without having to really look hard and decipher what it is.
The one thing that sometimes happens is that they get stuck or just aren't quite sharp enough and the nice folks at plaid have always suggested freezing it (yes, I know, wierd) and then punching with waxed paper for the sticking issue or tin foil for the cutting issue. Periodically I'll do this and it does help alot. It is pretty easy to grasp and use although now some are made where they have extender handles.
Overall, and for the price, these are great simple little punches. My son and I enjoy being crafty together so we use these together, thus giving us quality family time together.
