Martha Stewart Crafts Circle Edge Punch: Doily Place Setting

IMG 9174
I was recently given the opportunity to review a brand new product from Martha Stewart Crafts.
You can find the starter kit here.
Are you ready to learn more?
I hope so, because this product is one of my new favorite crafting tools!

The product is a circle edge punch.
Basically it makes doilies or decorative rounded papers for your crafting and/or scrapbooking.
Shown above is the circle edge punch starter kit.
Let’s break it down…

The starter kit comes with 
1) a decorative edge punch, 
2) the punch comes with a plastic cap which contains the counter punch to slip into the base, 
and 3) the base which holds your paper and the punch.
To get started, you need to remove the counter punch from the plastic and insert it into the base.
The decorative edge punch sits on top of the counter punch and stays attached with heavy duty magnets.

The base allows you to cut the doilies in any size ranging from 6 to 12 inches.

To punch your paper, first you need to find the center and mark a small X in pencil.
I’m going to punch a 12″ doily so I need to set both of the number settings to 12.
Remove the round knob (its magnetic) and set your paper there.
Replace the round knob.
The center of the knob is see through and has cross hairs so you can line up the X you drew in the center of the paper.
Place the punch on the base and push down to push the punch through the paper.
Remove the punch, give the round knob a quick twist, and the paper will rotate just the right amount to make the next punch.
Replace the punch and continue on until you have worked your way all around the paper.

I made 12″ and 6″ doilies on double sided scrapbook paper.

By the way, all the scraps that you are punching out are collected inside the base to this project is also mess free!

I used my 12″ doily as a placemat and the 6″ doily as a decorative utensil holder.
Because of the double sided scrapbook paper, I can easily change the look of the place setting.
Wouldn’t this make a super fun addition to your holiday table!

I wrapped the utensil holder with some twine to hold it together.

You can see how I folded the doily by viewing it from the back here.

I’m a bit of a doily fanatic so this product is definitely right up my alley!
Its super easy to use and the end product is phenomenal.

I love the circle edge punch but I can say I think the price is just too steep even for Martha. I am going to wait this one out until there is a price drop. Love what you have done. Dianntha

I already bought mine through HSN and made sure I'm on the plan where they ship me new cartridges for it as they become available. It was shipped to me in less than a week! Can't wait to find some time to sit down and punch!
