Looking After Your Punches

Scrapbooking punches can get a fair bit of wear and tear. Your blade naturally becomes blunt after a time and it’s a real faff when the punch hasn’t cut through the paper or card 100%. There are steps you can take though to keep your scrapbook punches sharp and reliable - even the ones you use all the time.

Step 1
Clean the punch with a damp cloth. Watch those sharp edges, mind you.

Step 2
She falls in love with you. Sorry. Wrong steps. Take a piece of aluminum foil and punch your craft punch through it several times in order to sharpen the edges.

Step 3
Then try the punch on a thicker paper like cardstock to see if it cuts more easily. If this doesn’t work you can gently sand the edges of your punch with fine sand paper on each side to make them sharper.

Step 4
Punch your craft punch through a piece of wax paper several times to lubricate the punch and clean off any adhesive residue.

To do this you'll need:
Scrapbook paper
Craft punches
Aluminum foil
Wax paper
Fine sandpaper
Damp cloth

Punches create lovely motifs for you to embellish your layouts and scrapbooking borders

with. Keeping them nice and sharp will keep things fun and 'faff-free'.
