SQOTD 11/8/19

Post by Tracy F » Fri Nov 08, 2019 7:57 am

I went to use a punch the other day and it seemed kinda dull.That got me to wondering if there is any way to sharpen a punch. I know they used to sell sharpening kits but I had heard they didn't work. Does anyone know what does work?

No, I've never done that before. None of my punches have ever felt dull to me.

Yes! Use foil paper. Fold a sheet of foil paper once or twice, depending how thick it is, and then cut it with the punch 3 or 4 times. It also works with your paper trimmer.

Scrapbooking....is there really anything else?

I rescue paper trapped in the craft store... I’m not a hoarder I’m a hero.

Yep, Lolis is right! I've used aluminum foil on my punches before and it does seem to help.

I have heard about the foil, but haven't tried it yet. I need to with my project life card punches
