I didn't quite realize how far the punch obsession had gotten until I made this little project.
I've got a very teeny space, so it is necessary that everything be tucked as neatly and compactly as possible. Unfortunately, I'm one of those people who need to see what they have to use it. I'm not much for pre-planning, anyway...
I got an idea to do a little punch index when I saw Tim Holtz make one for his new sizzix dies. So for this, basically, I took some cardstock, cut it down to 2x3 and then used one punch (or set of punches) per card.
Add a hole to the upper corner and some binder rings and you are good to go. I've each manufacturer on it's own ring. So, one for Martha, one for the EK slimline and one for my Fiskars.
I like it a lot, and I think I might do something similar for my icon punches and my spray inks.
On the upside, now at least I know what I have.
And knowing is half the battle.
