    The screw punch can be found at Michaels in the Martha Stewart section.

    I believe the tool that they are indicating is a punch that pokes out a single [filtered word] at a time, it sort of looks like an ice pick, with a large bulbous plastic end, and then a circular [filtered word] puncher at the other, and I do believe it has a spring mechanism in it. I saw them just this evening at Walmart....under 10 dollars I believe...I didn't buy it, because I was buying other craft items for myself and as gifts. Though the one thing I really wanted....the circle cutter, was sold out...boo hoo

    I have looked for hours to find the santa cookie cutters and now looking for the craft screw punch and find that even though there is a link to ms crafts it is not on it. I don't have the time for these fruitless searches. Either carry the item or tell where it can be purchased.

    Google Japanese [filtered word] punch. It is a bookbinding tool with interchangeable tips in a variety of sizes. Cost ranges from $24 to $35.

    I too tried to find the screw punch tool F04937 at Martha Stewart Crafts, but I told not found. Hmmmm

    Oops! Just re-read the instructions and see that the paper fits around a hurricane.

    I love this idea. I was actually trying to find something for my mantle and I think this would be great but I cannot find the screw punch tool on her website. Does anyone know where it can be found? Do you just light it with tea lights? Not sure about that with the paper.
