Default Recommendation on a corner rounder

Anyone have any recommendations on a corner rounder? I have the Martha Stewart 1/2" punch, but just can't seem to get a good edge. Thanks!

I use the corner chomper by WE R Memory Keepers. You can round multiple sheets at once.

Ditto on the Corner Chomper --- has both 1/4 and 1/2" on the same punch.

Another Corner Chomper fan. It works so well and is so sturdy. Also love that you can do two different corner sizes.

I make lots of note card sets as gifts, and I can round the corners of the notes after they are folded, since it punches 2 layers of cardstock with ease.

Not a fan of the Corner Chomper. I liked the idea to have two sizes and to be able to go through 2 layers but I seem to have difficulty getting a nice even rounded corner. if that makes sense.....

This might be a stupid question, but have you emptied it lately? I have that problem when it gets full, because the corners inside it get it the way. It can sometimes be tricky to line it up, but it works well for me for the most part.

Bit of a change of subject....I'm looking for a 1/8" corner rounder and all I can find searching online are very expensive and generally for those who make/collect playing cards. Anyone know of a Craft product for this tiny corner cut? Thanks, sisters!

I have the same problem with the Corner Chomper; I keep mine clean/empty of paper so it's not that - I cannot for the life of me get a nice corner with these

I also have the Bind it all corner rounders and they were expensive, but I have better results with them.

I think that the Corner Chomper is the 'corner rounder of choice' for SCSers - I wish I had better results...

Corner Chomper has one that has 1/8" and 3/8" and one that has 1/4" and 1/2". I love mine but I do agree that occasionally it might not cut smoothly. Love that I can cut 4 sheets at once.

I have the Fiskars one that has 2 sizes, It's not that good. I have a couple of CM they work perfect. I also have the one that came with my Zutter bind it all. I love it truly. It's my fav. I use the CM all the time and get a perfect cut every time.

On my corner chomper only one of the sizes works ok, the other one doesn't line up and it cuts into the corner - then I have to trim it !!!!! Not a fan.

I also have a couple of SU ones, but I don't get consistent results with them. I also have an ancient Creative Memories one that I bought 2nd hand & it works perfectly every time.

I ordered the Corner Chomper and it should arrive tomorrow. I sure hope it works well because I was in Hobby Lobby yesterday and Paper Studio has a large and a small corner rounder for $6.99 each, on sale 50% off for $3.50. I've seen mixed reviews on the Corner Chomper both here and on Amazon.

I got a corner chomper when I killed off my generic punch (have no idea what brand - it is yellow)... I haven't had a chance to fuss with it to see if I can repair it but I do like my Corner chomper, spoiled myself and got a decorative rounder too.

I have the Corner Chomper and really like it. I've found that you cannot be "casual" about inserting the corner and chomping away. That will result in misaligment and a messy corner.

I insert the paper carefully and be sure it is squared up before I punch.

I think the same rule applies when using paper trimmers. I've seen lots of people complain about "crooked cuts" using a trimmer that I own and get very straight cuts with every time. I suspect "user error" in some of these cases.

Take your time, ladies. We didn't start this hobby to save time, lol.

You're reminding me of that envelope punch board youtube video review where you could see she didn't even attempt to line it up. LMBO.

I have tried my corner chomper every which way but loose LOL to no avail. And I'm talking with 1 piece of cardstock - sheesh!!! And I am not a speed crafter - I'm like the tortoise from the tortoise and the hare so I'm not going too fast. Maybe I have a bum tool. I just stick with my zutter corner rounders.

I returned two Corner Chompers and gave the third to a charity, recently. Their Customer Service is excellent , but slowly and carefully I tried with many different cardstocks and text papers, never once getting a clean round corner on either size. I suspect older Corner chompers may have been made by a different manufacturer, with better results.

My ten year old Creative Memories corner rounders work fine 99% of the time, but I was wanting different sizes.

Some people use their decorative scissors to cut 1/8th inch rounded corners. That takes practice and patience, but it is the least expensive way to go.

I have tried the corner chomper every which way, fast and slow - but no way will it cut properly. Some people are fortunate enough to have one that works while the rest of us have to consign them to the 'tools that never worked' pile'. I will never waste my money on another corner chomper!

Received my Corner Chomper today and I must say I'm underwhelmed. It doesn't cut any better than my Martha Stewart punch and seems way over-designed. The 1/2" side cuts more straight across than curved. The black plastic makes it difficult to see the cutting guides. I have to hold it directly under the light to see where to insert the paper. I didn't even try chip board because it doesn't seem to be cutting through on a single sheet of cardstock. I don't know where the trimmings are going because they're not showing up in the little trash compartment. Thinking about returning it to Amazon and taking the hit on paying the return postage. Amazon is really good about taking things back.

Try contacting the manufacturer if you believe it is defective. I got mine about a month ago and am pleased with it. I wonder if it is a bad batch.

For those having trouble with the Corner Chomper, have you tried contacting WRMK rather than giving up on them.
I have one and absolutely love it. Sadly, when it was on the floor I stood on it and broke one of the black "wings", but with a little care positioning the paper/card it still works perfectly. Certainly I'll replace it when I can afford it and there's nothing else I want more, but even broken it's still my go-to corner rounder. Standing on it is hardly something I can go back to the manufacturer about .

Please, please, please don't be offended by this question - but are you opening the wings before inserting the paper? On mine, when the black plastic pieces are opened, they are the cutting guides. I don't have to look for where to insert the paper, it just follows along those wings. Like Bugga said, you need to take a little time and make sure the cardstock is all the way in there, but it shouldn't require you to be right under a light.

I know you're not new to this stamping game, and that probably seems like a silly question, but I've had it happen where I had a tool that I didn't think worked right and found out that I wasn't using it quite right.

I also know how frustrating it is to have a tool that everyone is singing the praises of, and you've got one that doesn't work. With the Corner Chompers, it seems that people either love them (me) or hate them. There must be some defective ones out there - I'd definitely contact WRMK so that they're aware of the problem.

Another vote for the Corner Chomper, I've tried others and never got a good clean cut. One bit of info I did come across, as well as being very careful to line up properly in your punch, is to make sure the corner you are going to cut is an absolute 90 degree right angle, whatever brand of rounder you use.. If its even fractionally off being square, you will not get a nicely rounded corner. Seems to me that would explain why sometimes it leaves a bit of a step, or one side of the rounder is 'flat'?

Well, ladies, you have convinced me to (1) give my corner chomper another try and (2) contact WRMK if it does not give me a nice edge.

Thanks for all of the good advice on this thread Much appreciated!

Good points. You know, when I first got my Corner Rounder, I was opening the wings, but not far enough. There seems to be an extra little "click" when they are completely open. Makes a ton of difference.

And, along this same line, I had problems when I first got my CropaDile. I fiddled with it all one afternoon, got frustrated, and returned it. I came here and read again how much everyone loved theirs, and darned if I didn't go back to Michaels and buy it again. I watched some videos and got the hang of using it, and I've loved it ever since.

Well, lesson learned. When in doubt, read the instructions! Opening those wings made all the difference. Who knew? Now that I know what to do, I'll be making a lot of "curved" cards. Thanks for all the help, ladies!!!

Yea!! problem fixed. After this thread was started I looked and realized that I had 8 corner rounders!! Well, I gave one of the 3 CM to a friend who didn't have one. This summer, I think I'm going to thin out my supplies. Yikes. I'm glad you were able to get this worked out.

Oh, good good good! I know there are some defective chompers out there, but when you mentioned how difficult it was to see the cutting guides, I was hoping it was something like the wings.

Now I'm off to watch some videos of the Crop-O-Dile. I've had that thing for I don't know how long, but I just can't seem to set an eyelet with it without squishing it into obscurity. Didn't return the tool, because the paper punch part of it is awesome, but I think it's time to figure out how it works

I use a very slow motion when using my crop-o-dile to squish the eyelet. My first eyelet setter was a Silent Setter so I got used to the "give" of the metal bending back.

I wish my corner chomped worked better. I bought one, and the 1/4" side worked smoothly, the 1/2" gave a ragged cut. I contacted WRMK and after sending them a photo of the two cuts, they sent me a new one. On this one, the 1/2" slide worked well, the 1/4" side did not. So I now have two tools to do the job of one. It is annoying.

About two years later, I bought a new one, thinking maybe I had just been unlucky. Nope - one side worked well, the other did not. So I returned it and am sticking with my two. So sadly, I am 3 for 3 in defective product. I really wanted to like it and tried everything I have read here - opening the wings fully, inserting the paper carefully and at a slight downward angle, but on each one, on side was rough and "munched". So if you decide to buy one, make sure you can return it if it is not working properly - or better yet, test it out in the store before you pay.

I can't fault WRMK's customer service in sending me a new one, but the product does not seem to be made to consistently high standards.

I have two types of corner rounders - my corner chompers for bigger pieces and then the smaller yellow and green corner rounders (I believe they are made by EKSuccess and are the older style) for smaller pieces. Wouldn't part with either!

I had issues at first with my chompers, called the company and they talked me through what I was doing wrong, never had an issue since!

I really like all the choice in the corner chompers, I've got 3 of them.

Hobby Lobby has two sizes of corner rounders in the Paper Studio line. I believe I only paid $6.99 for the larger one.
Blessings.

I recently purchased Martha Stewart"s corner rounder (only two weeks ago), already it is showing signs that the blades are getting dull. Very disappointing. It wont make a clean cut on some pictures, maybe its the type of paper the picture is printed on

That's exactly why I bought the Corner Chomper. Very dissatisfied with the Martha Stewart brand.

If its even fractionally off being square, you will not get a nicely rounded corner. Seems to me that would explain why sometimes it leaves a bit of a step, or one side of the rounder is 'flat'?
I know that "unsquare" corners are at least 90% of my problem. I can't cut a perfect corner for love or money.
I don't own a corner chomper, so I can't address its functionality. Just as an observation about punches in general, each punch seems to have its own "cardstock thickness sweet spot". I rarely can get a punch to work properly on text weight paper, but if I punch through the paper with a piece of scrap cardstock it works much better. Other punches will choke on all but the thinnest of cardstock. Simple shapes like circles and ovals seem to be the most forgiving of all. Oh the problems we face for the love of our craft! LoL
