Seasonal Punch & Stitch Sheets
Patience is required!
Yes the plastic sheets are flimsy and yes they can crack (I¿¿¿ve actually only had one crack and I use these frequently), but if you buy the starter kit that goes with it, you'll be fine. The starter kit includes a piercer (you don't need a drill or hole punch the holes. If you don't buy the starter kit, you can just pierce them with a nail). I found the best thing to do was to punch the holes of the designs on the template I wanted to make (take your time so your holes are in the correct place) and then use the template to pierce the holes on the paper. It takes time, but your holes will be accurate. I¿¿¿ve made birthday cards, Valentine¿¿¿s and plan on using these templates for my Holiday Cards next winter.

What a shock!
Had no idea that these sheets wouldn't have the
holes punched in them. Since there are reviews
already about this item and problem maybe OTC
should put a comment in the discription section.
My plan is to use a drill and very small drill bit to
make the holes. It will take a lot of time but if it is
held flat it shouldn't crack. I'm keeping my fingers

I love these! They are great for stitching and to make patterns for brads or rinestone placement.

I love the idea of these templates but they do crack very easily due to the fact that the holes are not pre-punched. I think if the holes were punched they would be awesome but even so I am sure I will create beautiful pages.

holes come unpunched
disappointed... ad did not state that holes are unpunched... now I have to find a way to punch the holes before I can use this item (small hole punchers won't reach into the middle of the sheets)

Not quite what I thought
I should have read the other reviews before buying. I'm pretty sure I still would have bought them though. But I assumed the holes would be punched in already and they are flimsy as the other reviewers indicated. I do however, disagree with others who stated this item won't last but just a few times. Once the holes are punched in each time you use them you simply follow the holes. I don't see why they won't last from doing that.

Seasonal Punch & Stitch Sheets
Although I haven't used them yet-just got 'em yesterday, I look forward to using them. I think even after reading the other review about them cracking one could use a light box and just mark the dots then punch-this is how I am going to start out with them at least .

QUALITY IS LACKING
THIS IS A GOOD IDEA HOWEVER THE PUNCH SHEETS COME WITHOUT THE HOLES IN THEM AND THE PLASTIC IS SO FLIMSY THAT ONCE YOU PUNCH IT WITH THE TOOL MOST OF THE HOLES HAVE CRACKS SPLITTING UP FROM THEM. IT IS USABLE FOR NOW BUT I DON'T EXPECT THEM TO LAST TOO LONG.

I sell scrapbook pages on the internet and this is perfect for adding cute little embellishments to mats or journal blocks. Its the perfect size for cards too! Its a little thinner then the Bazzill Sheets but works just as well.
