Tips & Tricks

Wednesday, February 24th, 2010

I’ve been working on a fun DIY series to share with all of you but I’m still in the process of editing all the photos and setting up the files for downloading. In the mean time I thought I’d share this quick tip that I just learned from my sister Allison. This trick totally came in handy for my latest project so here’s a sneak peak for what’s in store.

Rather than spending tons of money to replace all those craft punches that have begun to dull you can repair them yourself! All you need is a little tin foil! Just punch the foil a few times and TA-DA your punch is sharpened and restored! I was a skeptic at first but after testing it out on all of my punches myself I can tell you that it actually works! Added bonus, I also discovered a new way to make shimmery homemade confetti!

*Update: Reader Kylie was kind enought to add that if you punch through some wax paper afterwards, the wax will lubricate your punch too. Thanks Kylie!
