Craft Tips – How to Sharpen Your Scrapbook Craft Punches


Posted by Merryn | Posted in Craft Tips and Tricks | Posted on 24-02-2010 | 22,481 views


* Take a piece of aluminum foil and punch your craft punch through it several times in order to sharpen the edges. Then try the punch on a thicker paper like cardstock to see if it cuts more easily.

* If that doesn’t do the trick you can gently sand the edges of your punch with fine sand paper on each side to make them sharper.

* Punch your craft punch through a piece of wax paper several times to lubricate the punch and clean off any adhesive residue.
