Empty Punch Box Ideas!

Share |
Over the past few years, Stampin' Up! has come out with a couple of great Punch Box kits (which included a neat punch, exclusive stamps and ink spots), and I've always LOVED using the cool turquoise tins afterwards for storing some of my stamping supplies in.

I have one that hold JUST my Embossing Powders, another that holds perfectly all 4 boxes of Stampin' Spots, plus my other spare was used to house a Stamping Kit-On-The-Go, with some SNAIL adhesive, Paper Snips, a bone folders and other must-haves that I need when taking a project to stamp with me.

These tins are also fun to alter and customize as well... I've added Rub-on's, ribbons, DSP, chipboard -- you name it!

Now that Stampin' Up! is offering these for sale on their own, I thought I'd share some other great ideas on how to use them (now only $4.75 CDN each, while supplies last!):

Stamping Storage ideas:

Card kits
Card and recipe swaps
Ribbon or ribbon scraps
Paper scraps
Ink refills
Ink cartridges
Punches
SNAIL adhesive and refills
Scissors, paper snips, and Craft & Rubber scissors
Two heat tools
Glitters
Beads
Buttons
Eyelets
Marker case, such as for journal pens, blender pens, aqua pens, etc.
Project holder: when you have everything cut out for a project, you have all the pieces in the box so that you can take it with you to assemble

Nonstamping ideas/uses:
Jewelry box
Pencils, pens, and crayons
Candy
First aid box
Lunch box: you can use our Crop-A-Dile to punch holes to attach a handle
Small sewing items
Recipes
Hair clips, ponytail holders, etc.
Box to hold nails and screws
Small tool box
Pedicure kit
Small toys
Sentimental keepsakes
Gift box: line it with tissue paper and fill it with homemade cookies for a friend!

I'm even having a special Tempting Turquoise class on Wednesday August 27 using them... so stay tuned :)

Happy stamping,
