Paper Punch Storage
This is what I started with. I purchased 2 of these off of Craigs List last week for $1.00 for both. What a deal, couldn't pass it up. So I had my wonderful Handy Husband cut the separators out and drill 4 holes on each side so I can insert 3/8 size dowels. I would probably use a thicker dowel for the larger punches.This is the end result. What do you think?
I had to cover it with paper and I also used a Martha Stewart punch to dress it up. Not sure if I like the way it looks decorated wise, but the functionality of it is great. The good thing is I can change the look when I get a better idea of what I want it to look like. Most of these punches I purchase at http://www.buy4less.com/.
The second one I am going to use to store my Stampin Up ink pads and have my husband drill some more holes so I can either store more punches that I plan on buying or to store ribbon. Not sure yet. I will post that when when I get it done.
Merry Christmas to you all, stay safe and enjoy your time with family and friends.
