I know people have shown these before, but I have to show you again, in case you missed it! :) I just got these rods at Ikea, and they are perfect for punches. They have longer ones, also, but these short ones fit my space better. And the best part? I think they were $1.99 or something like that. (each) Ahhh! :) Anyway, just had to share. :) I put a few diff. sizes there so you can see they work great with all the SU punches.

I love this idea - did you have trouble finding struts in the wall the correct distance apart? I would worry that the weight of the punches would pull the unit out of the wall (we rent, so this is a concern for me). I love the look and the ease though - very nice!!

Me again. :) K, to answer your questions, my hubby mounted these for me and he just used heavy-duty drywall screws, so no worries about finding struts. They are very sturdy this way. :)
For those that don't know about Ikea, it is a home furnishings-type store. We just barely got one here in Utah, so it is a fun new novelty for us here. :) I'm glad that Wal-Mart carries something like this, too, though! I didn't know that!
Oh, and if you do want to find these at Ikea, I found them in the kitchen dept. At our store they actually had a display set up sort of in an entry, but I'm sure they aren't too hard to find amongst the kitchen doo-dads. :)
Oh, hey, I just found it online if anyone is interested in taking a peek. http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/50072645
They also have these fun baskets and things, and I got a couple of these also. http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/10072647
I hope that helps! Sorry, I'm long-winded. :) Happy stamping! :)
