corner rounder

Can anyone suggest a corner punch (that rounds the corners of pictures) that won't hurt my hand so much? I hate sharp corners and love the rounded look, but after awhile my hands ache. I tried a Fiskars one that closes like pliers, but it never cuts right. I have one that you mash with your thumb, and it works great, but it's hard. Even DH said it was hard and he is a big guy. he said I need to invest in a really good easy to use one. So I need suggestions from anyone that has a good easy to punch one.

I use the one from Creative Memories. My mom does too, and she has MS... so she has some hand stregth issues.

You could give that a try, and see if its better for you. I think its pretty easy, and my DDs have been using it fortheir pics since they were 4-5 yo!

I had their old one that you mashed iwth your thumb and I used it until it just wore out. I like the look of that one and I think I saw one similar to that in one of the craft store sales papers. I have a 40%off coupon so I'll have to look this weekend. thanks!

CM's corner rounder. I hold it in my hand and squeeze it between my thumb and fingers, rather than using it on the table and smashing with my thumb.

The newer CM corner rounder even collects your corners for you so you don't have little scraps all over the place. You can see what it looks like at www.creativememories.com

Another vote for the CM corner rounder. I would try out the one in the store before you buy it. I have one that looks like the CM corner rounder from Michael's that some one gave me when they gave up traditional and I can barely push it.

On a side note, my DH still says that he can hear the sound of the corner rounder in his sleep. Almost every traditional photo that I have scrapped is corner rounded!!!!

No matter which brand you get..don't use your thumb...I use the palm of my hand because of severe arthritis. I have both the CM and the look alike at store and can do both this way.
