Punches are fun tools to use, but they can be a real pain to store. If you've got your punches dumped into a bin or tote, there's a good chance you're not using them because they're a pain to get to.
Remembering what you have can also be a challenge when your punches are piled up in a box or bin. Consider getting your punches organized and cagaloged. Once the catalog is complete, you're sure to use these expensive tools much more often.
Read my next post for tips and tricks on how to create a punch catalog.
Before you create a catalog you'll need to choose storage tools. Here are a few of the storage tools we offer and my recommendations for who should use them.
These handy little bags come in 3 depths - 1", 1.5" and 2".
Ideal for crafters who need to move their punches around - either off a shelf to a workspace or off the shelf to a crop tote.
One big benefit - these bags can be labeled down the side and then arranged on a shelf like a library.
These are ideal for people who craft at home and have space available on a work space or shelf. The big benefit to these - visibility and accessibility, which means you'll use them more.
If space is at a premium in your craft room, over-the-door storage might be a perfect solution. Please keep in mind, punches are quite heavy, so be sure the hinges on your door can handle the weight of a couple of punch panels.
Pocket panels are nice because they can easily be moved around. You can even store these panels in your closet on a hanger!
Don't have a lot of punches? Try storing them in something that is easy to carry to your work space but equally easy to put back on the shelf. Our Ditto Bag is a good example. This bag folds in half for carrying put opens on your desktop for easy access to everything.
