I can say that EK Success leads the way in edge punches. Aside from their own line, they also make punches for Martha Stewart and Stampin' Up. For a certain period of time, EK Success released matching corner punches with some of their edge punches, like Martha Stewart. But even though the design is the same, it's not as user friendly as the Martha Stewart Around the Corner line. There are no instructions anywhere that tells of the paper measurements for the edge punch and corner punch to work together. A perfect example is the Round Binding Edge Edger Punch. I was lucky to find the matching corner punch for this particular design, but then I learned that the paper measurements is not the same as the Martha Stewart's, which is 3.25, 5, 6.75, 8.5, and so on.
So I decided to find the measurements for this particular punch set myself. And I'm sharing it right now, so whoever has these two punches will hopefully enjoy them more.
For the Round Binding Edge Edger Punch and matching Corner Punch, you need to cut squares and/or rectangles with these measurements:
- 3 9/16
- 3 15/16
- 5 11/16
That's as far as I went. I don't need to make bigger sizes for cards anyway.
While I was in the process of figuring these measurements out, I ended up with a bunch of rectangles cut with the round Binding Edge punch. I used them to make this card:
tools: EK Success, Stampin' Up, Spellbinders
embellishments: buttons, bauble
adhesive: Scotch, Glue Dots, mounting tape
