putting holes for window cranks in repro interior qtr panels - 12/06/18 05:04 PM

I have some new rear quarter interior panels. The holes for the window cranks are only partially cut in the cardboard backing. Last time I did this I used an Xacto knife but wasn't real happy with the result. I'm wondering about using a leather punch or some other kind of hole punch. Anyone have an easy and successful way to do this?
Thanks

I used a very sharp Xacto knife on the back side with cardboard and wood underneath the absorb the cuts. I used very small scissors to cut the material on the front side after I had a circle of slits from the knife. I thought it came out pretty well.
