How to Correctly Use a Japanese Hole Punch
(for right-handed people)
1. Place a self-healing cutting mat beneath your stencil paper.
2. Rest both elbows on the table top.
3. Using both hands, hold the stylus with your thumb, index, and middle fingers.
4. Hold your left at the top of the stylus, while keeping your right hand down low close to the paper.
5. Using the index finger (and/or your middle finger) of your left hand, slowly rotate the stylus clockwise while pushing firmly through the paper. Take care to keep the stylus perpendicular to the paper at all times and press down just hard enough and long enough to cut through the paper. Pushing too hard will cause you to poke through your mat and working at an odd angle may cause the tip to snap.
