Circle Edge Punch Instructions
TIP: Use scrap paper to practice punching before starting your project.
Step 1 Remove clear cover from punch cartridge.
Step 2 Insert bottom metal plate from cartridge into sliding tray on base by pulling the release tab back and placing flat side up. Be sure that the smooth, flat side is facing up to ensure proper punch function. NOTE: Finished circle may be slightly smaller than selected size.
Step 3 Choose a circle size between 6" and 12" in 1" increments. Select circle size by sliding the measurement switch on the curved front of the base to desired diameter. Then move the sliding tray so the arrow marks align with the same number selected on the front of the base.
Step 4 Locate the center of your paper and lightly mark it with a pencil.
Step 5 Remove the rotating knob from the base by turning slightly and pulling up. Place your paper on the punch base over the circle where the knob was removed. Try to center this as best as possible. Align the grid on the bottom of the knob with the center of your paper. Replace knob on base so that all the magnets connect. You should feel the magnets lock the paper in place. If mark on paper does not align with grid, adjust the paper by pulling the edge until center mark is aligning. TIP: Use paper larger than your desired diameter. If your paper is the same size as the circle you are punching, align the center of the edge of your paper with the notch on the top of the metal punch plate.
Step 6 Place punch cartridge on top of your paper over the metal plate in the sliding tray. All magnets will connect.
Step 7 Press the punch cartridge down evenly with both hands.
Step 8 Remove the punch cartridge. Press down and turn the knob in either direction until it clicks in place. Paper will rotate to next area to be punched. TIP: If you are unsure if your paper is in the correct position, re-align the circle by turning the knob back to the previously punched position and rotate again.
Step 9 Repeat Steps 7 and 8 until circle is complete.
Step 10 Separate the knob from the base by turning slightly and pulling up. Remove finished circle.
