One of the things I get asked about most is punch storage. Punches are a great addition to your card making supplies but they can be bulky and hard to store. My philosophy is if I can’t see them I won’t use them. So I have most of my punches hanging on my wall like this…
My husband built this handy punch holder using 3 towel bars from IKEA and a scrap piece of white board he had lying around. The towel bars are flat, not round so the punches fit over them better. You wouldn’t absolutely need the white board, but it protects the wall from the punches and requires fewer screws into the wall.
At first I wasn’t sure how I was going to store the new style of Stampin’ Up! punches, but if you leave them open they’ll hook over the bar just fine. I’ve arranged my punches by type – you’ll notice circles along the bottom row, ovals and squares in the middle row and fun shapes in the top row.
Are these all the punches I have? Of course not. I also have a few stray punches stored in a drawer. But I rarely remember to use them because I can’t see them.
How do you store your punches? If you’ve got a great punch storage idea, we’d love to hear it!
