Robin, How do I keep the pattern even when cutting with the Martha Stewart punches when punching completely around a 12x12 paper? I do real well up to a certain spot then it cuts into the the design again ruining it. Thanks for your help, Redbug

Be sure to use the dimensions provided in the instructions sheet included with the punch. Check out the video from Martha Stewart Crafts for more information. You also want to start with the corners and then do the sides. Hope this helps!
