Snowflake Punch & Emboss Set
Not Bad for the Price
They will punch out what is shown in silver on the buttons, so yes, if you want a medallion with a snowflake in it, you'll have to use a larger circle punch afterwards, but all three are very pretty patterns.
It's a little hard to get them to emboss but once I put them on a cement floor and stepped on the buttons, they turned out beautifully. It depends on the paper, too -- you may want to spritz it with water so the impression "takes" better.
One of the three I got has a minor defect -- a little spot where it doesn't quite cut through -- but nothing I can't fix with my X-acto knife.
Overall a very good buy, and I'm hoping to make some beautiful Christmas cards with them.

High price for what you get and must do to finish the flowers.
Picture in catalog and on line is a bit deceiving in that it appears that the punches will give you a whole flower when in fact, you only get the inside features of the flower and you must cut with a scissors around the outside to complete the flower! The picture shows the whole flower cut out, but the punches do not do that!
