Default martha stewart punch

i bought the snowflake punch that will punch in the center of the page. it says on the package that you will need to use two hands, but holy moly, i break a sweat if i have to do more than a couple. does anyone else have it? it is so so difficult to punch.

I've heard if you punch it through wax paper a few times it will lubricate the punch and might loosen it for you!

I had the same problem with one of Martha's Punch All Over the Page punches. It wouldn't even punch through Martha's own cardstock! I returned it that time, but I have since bought it again -- at 50% off -- and have used wax paper and foil to loosen and sharpen it. It will work on thinner cardstock or on paper, but not much else, and yes, it does take a concerted effort to punch all the way through. Good luck!
