The AdvantEdge™ Punch System features slide-and-lock technology that makes punching perfectly aligned borders easier than ever.
I like to keep my supplies at my fingertips and ready to use, but with all the crafting products I’ve accumulated, most get tucked into bins and drawers, and I often forget what I have.
It’s always my goal in the New Year to become more organized, and this year, I’m starting in the craft room. I’m going to wrangle those supplies and take an inventory of what I have with hopes of becoming a more efficient crafter.
To help with this task, I created this crafting organizer to keep track of all my craft punches, stamps, rolls of tapes, sheets of paper, etc.
It took hours to create, but if it helps keep me be organized and waste less, then I think it was worth the time investment.
To make yours, start by pulling out all of your punches and sort them by season or styles. Cut strips of card stock, and punch one of each shape from the strips, keeping related shapes together. Mount the strips on card stock sheets.
Do the same with your border punches and Fuse dies too.
Next, take your clear stamps, and scan and print an image of each set.
Cut a strip from each of your washi tape rolls and stick these samples to a card stock sheet.
Save the identifying strip from the bottom of the sheets of your papers and mount them on pages. Organize them by theme, manufacturer, or colors.
After you’ve created all your pages, slip them into plastic sleeves and put them in your three-ring binder. Use the punched shapes from the first steps of the project to decorate the cover.
Don’t stop with these steps! There are plenty of other items you can add to this reference book. You could make pages with samples of ink, paint, pen, or pencil colors. If you work with yarn, you could make a chart with snips from each skein.
It might take some time to get this started, but once you do, it’s easy to maintain. As your craft tool and supply collection grows, just add more pages to the binder. If you fill this binder, just move on to the next.
