Freezing punches.

So you have done it!  It…the enchanting word “it”.  You have managed to jam that cardstock into that punch and it won’t come out.  The springs are stuck and nothing is working.  You have dropped it gently on to the table, floor, or whatever other hard surface you have.  And those springs won’t budge!  I don’t want to call Joni to order a new one.  I want new product from the new catalog, not to waste money on something that is not working because I wasn’t careful.

So, for your last attempt before you call me, throw your punch (and whatever else is attached) into the freezer.  Yes, the freezer.  Give it a few minutes and see if that helps.  Often when metal gets cold it will contract.  This will give the springs enough space to release and you will get a do over.  You will get your happily ever after and get to order new toys instead of replacing your broken ones.

If you have to give this a try please comment and let me know if this works for you.

Happy Crafting!

With inky fingers,

Joni 🙂
