We R Memory Keepers Tab Punch Board Review is what we have for you today. I was super excited to get this new tool and used a coupon! YAY ME! In the video, I literally just opened this 1o minutes ago so I am going to show you how it works and what I have found in my short time using it!
Here it is! The We R Memory Keeps Tab Punch Board. I was so excited about the THOUGHT of it but to own it… well, I am pretty darned excited about that too!
This is a tab done in light weight card stock.
This is a tab made with a recycled clear packaging piece from a die I purchased.
Here I have made a tab with the We R Memory Keepers Tab Punch Board using a recycled cereal box which is similar to chip board.
One of the awesome things I love about this tab punch is that you can put a tab on a page up to 12″ and isn’t Isn’t that great for scrapbooks? I am really excited to use it for my scrapbooks. How cool would it be to use it for a 2017 scrapbook and tab it for each person’s year? I love it!
For this piece of card stock, I am going to place the tab in the middle of the paper. I have lined up the left side of my paper to the line that is approximately the size of the width of my paper which is 8.5″.
This is what it looks like once the right size has been punched out using the We R Memory Keepers Tab Punch Board .
Now I want to punch the other side of the tab. I will flip my paper over and line up the tab side I have already punched up to the size tab I want for my paper. The choices are small, medium and large.
I lined it up to the small tab and was curious to see the result.
For some reason when I punch the second side of the tab, I have to use both hands. I am not sure why but this is consistent with all of the tabs I have created so far. This would include the chip board, clear packaging and the card stock.
This is what the tab looks like once it has been punched and it looks so clean.
Now on the other side of the punch board we have the trimmer! It’s a one stop shop! This is the blade and although it really is self explanatory, it took me a few minutes to figure out how to use the trimmer side. As you can see above, there is a blade side and a guide side. Yep! You guessed it! The round part goes in the guide because it is a guide! I know… I know…
One of the awesome things about this blade on the We R Memory Keepers Tab Punch Board is that it has a holder so it not only doesn’t get lost but the bottom part is solid so your blade isn’t exposed for potential injury!
To trim off the excess sides, you want to be sure the bottom of the tab is lined up to the cut line shown above.
To cut your sides, make sure your paper is butted up all the way to the top as shown. Slide your trimmer blade and trim off the excess piece and as you can see here I am trimming the left side piece.
This is a close up of is what it looks like once it was trimmed.
Using the same method, line up the right side and trim the excess paper.
Here is a close up shot of the finished tab on light weight card stock and I love the way it looks.
Here is a sample of the tab I made on the side of the cereal box.
Since we are creating a side tab and not a tab in the middle of your material, we have to do a few things differently. The above guide will need to be placed in the holes shown under the punch button.
For the corner rounder, you will place the guide in the far left hole. This allows the punch to round the corner of your paper and not create a tab.
Make sure your material is touching the top guide and the left side of the punch.
Once lined up, push the punch button on your We R Memory Keepers Tab Punch Board.
This is what it looks like once the corner has been rounded.
Now we are going to create a tab. Remove the guide from the right holes and replace it in the left holes as shown. Push on the We R Memory Keepers Tab Punch Board punch and remove the guide as done previously. Flip your paper over and line up the tab to the size tab you would like for your material and punch
This is what it will look line once you have punched your tab on your cereal box chip board.
Line up your tab to the line and butt it up against the edge. Using the trimmer blade, slide it across to trim off the excess chip board from your tab.
This is what your tab looks like using the cereal box chip board.
If you chose not to have the rounded corner, this is what it would look like.
This is the clear packaging tab I created with the We R Memory Keepers Tab Punch Board but trimmer on the tab punch doesn’t work very well at all with this.
Here, we are doing the same as we did with the chip board but we are using the packaging material.
This is what the corner looks like once it has been punched.
This is what the clear packaging looks like once the tab has been punched. This looks much better than it did when I did it the first time.
Here is a close up and there is an extra punched area when I did the small tab punch the first time.
Here I tried to show how the trimmer side of the We R Memory Keepers Tab Punch Board works. It did not do very well so I would suggest you use your normal trimmer and it worked fine.
After you use the punch board, the extra punched pieces fall out of the bottom. It makes it super simple to clean up your mess and easy to find!
