Punch Storage

Hi Crafters,
Christina from Creations with Christina is doing a link up series showing different parts of peoples craft rooms. This week she asked everyone to share how they store their punches. I just love looking at all the different and creative ways people store their stuff so I thought I would join in. I store all my punches in two clear three drawer towers. I am not 100% happy with this as I often forget about them and thus don't use them near enough but it keeps them from getting dusty at least lol. Below is a picture of the two towers and then a shot of each drawer so you can see how they are organized.
Thanks for looking! You should link up too I would love to see how you store your punches!

Still room to grow in the drawer below :)

I am not a fan of the Fiskars and Martha Stewart edge punches because I actually find them bulky and hard to store, 3 out of the 4 I only bought because they were on clearance for an excellent price. These four have their own drawer because of the space they need.

I find the EK Success ones much better because they are flat and can stack if you need them to. I am sticking with these from now on.

And then there are all the mini punches. Most are from dollar stores and Michael's. Before I owned my Cricut I was a bit obsessed with these...can you tell?! I liked them better then stickers because I could use them over and over again.

I just took this last picture because I loved all the colours mixed like this. Very creatively inspiring :)

There is alot of color in the mini punches you have. Most of the MS edge punches now fold up on both sides to take up somewhat less space. I've had fun using up paper scraps punching images & putting on the outside of my Rubbermaid plastic containers that hold the majority of my punches so I'll know what is inside each container.

I used to store mine as you do, until I ran out of "room to grow", lol.
Now I store them two ways. In a shoe holder hanging from the back of my door. And propped up on towel racks mounted on the wall.
