Does it bother you when the beautiful shiny silver on the top side of punches get scratched up and blemished? This drives me crazy! I’ve been working on a simple way to protect them, and today I want to share it with you.
Protect Punches With Contact Paper
To protect your punches, simply punch through a piece of clear matte Contact Paper with your punch. Make sure the back side of the paper is visible through the punch, and if needed, you may need to layer it with some regular paper for it to punch properly.
Peel back part of the backing, and fold it flat.
Line up the punch over top of the silver area and press the sticky portion down. Pull the paper backing while smoothing the sticky portion onto the punch.

One more thing – for all those punches in your collection that are already scratched up, no fear. This will make them look almost new! Do you want to get your punches working like new too? If so, take a look at this post!
