I've done it, and it definitely depends on what felt. Cheaper store bought stuff will. It also dulls your punch, so it will punch less well as you go along. Hand felted....depends on the density more or less.
ps. MomentInTheSun..hi from Burnaby!
I have a Martha Stewart heart punch that does (sometimes), but if you cut a lot of felt in shapes (as I do), invest in a die cutter. They are amazing! I have a Sizzix Big Kick and it's awesome - you can use Spellbinders, Sizzix, cuttlebug, etc dies.
Hope that helps!
I've a set of Fiskers punches and I use them to punch fleece without any problem at all. I would think that they would punch felt as well as long as its not too thick..
my bigkick (sizzix) cuts felt like a dream... paper punches, not so much. But it could depend on the brand.
My original sizzix will cut felt and all kinds of stuff but I haven't had any luck with paper punches at all. I rarely use my paper punches. Die cut machine for everything. You should be able to pick up an original sizzix real cheap.
Blueditty, I'm actually in N Burnaby :)
Wow! Thanks for the post momentinthesun! I was wondering the same thing. I use to work at a craft store, I think I remember the sizzix being out of my budget, so that'll be my new item to save for.. maybe they came down in price.
