Hi, my name is Marlene and I am a border punch addict. I do use them a lot and have found the discipline not to buy anymore, at least for now. One of the problems I have had is knowing which ones I own. On three different occasions I have duplicated purchases. I set them aside for gifts for some of my scrapbook pals so the extras aren't taking up space, but still it was annoying.
To solve the problem, I cut 2 x 3 inch rectangles of scrap paper. I took each border punch and made one cut on the end of the cardstock. That left a tab on either side of the punch which keeps the pages from becoming tangled. The punch manufacturer was noted on the corner of each sheet, I don't save the packaging so have no idea of names. A 1/2 inch circle was punched in the top left, taking care to line up the punch for a uniform location. I bought a 2" ring at an office supply store then inserted it through the upper left holes to hold all of the samples together.
Now, I have an easily transported list of all the punches I have. The sample is also handy to measure the depth of the punch. When returning the punches to their respective storage places, I was able to sort them by like types so I not only know what punches I have, but where they are.
I apologize in advance for the poor quality photos.
