We haven’t yet, but we’re going to.  I am a scrapbooker and I’ve used corner rounding tools since the dawn of man.  Theyre very easy to use.  My only advice is don’t skmip on the tool.  Get a good one (ie pay more money).  Your thumb will thank you.

I agree with the first poster.

We were going to round the invites- but we ran out of time, and frankly, out of motivation!

But I have spent countless hours rounding and it can lead to some sore thumbs. You don’t really need to worry about evenness depending on which rounder tool you use. I am not familiar with the one you pictured- But getting a good rounder is very helpful.

ditto what Grey56 said. i LOVE those little guys. They are a scrapbookers bff. And its worth it to spend a bit more to prevent blisters. Yep, blisters!

I got the fiskars corner rounder and it was great to use.  We used it for save the dates and it didn’t hurt after awhile like so many of the punches do.

I think I might — but I have used them for sure, and I absolutely agree with the other posters. Get a good one!

I believe the Fiskars corner rounder is the kind that you actually squeeze in your hand and depending on the amount of invites and thickness of the paper, could save your hands from becoming numb, painful mush =P.

I got the same fisker 1/4" rounder, thought it did a nice job.

I corner rounded our invitations and just used a cheap corner rounder I found at Michael’s or JoAnn’s.  The one I bought had a plastic ridge to line up the paper so it punched properly.  I think it added a nice finishing touch to the invitations and was easy to do while watching tv.

Yep, used that exact rounder for my DIY save-the-date postcards. Definitely finished the look. Debating on my inviations, though. They’re "playbill" style so likely will look better square. I think it depends on the style, but in general rounded corners look less DIY.

I have that rounder, too! It worked great on my wallet-sized engagement photos.<!–Session data–>

i love this corner rounder! http://store.scrapbook.com/pp-zu-2806.html  

it’s a little on the pricey side, but will save your hands cause it goes through thick cardstock, and even acrylic like butter!  it’s very heavy duty, and if you’re cutting through cardstock you can do several pages at a time.  i used to have the fiskar’s rounder and have broken several doing invitations and programs over the years.  hope this helps!

The printer I am planning on using offers corner rounding for a small fee.

However, as a scrapbooker, I would recommend investing in a good corner punch.  After punching 4/invite, your hand and fingers will get tired!

I love the look of the rounded corners, too.  Such a fresh look!

I got the Fiskars one and loved it!  It was so easy and they all came out evenly.
