This fiskars punch is so easy to use that it makes it fun to use it all the time. You can hold it the punching side up, making it easy for you to position it exactly where you want it thus getting good cuts from patterned papers. Also, the handled punch makes it easy for me rather than the press down. Of courese the heart shape itself is kind of whimsical and cool. I have not had any problems with paper getting stuck or anything. It has been breeze to use.
