Default Matching SU Punches with Stamp Sets

How do you keep track of which stamp sets go with which punch? I'm on an organizing kick. I just tucked little pieces of washi tape in the SU Sizzix envelopes of all the dies with the names of the matching stamp sets. But I'm trying to think what I want to do with the punches. I've got ones dating back to 2005. I'm thinking of sticking a small white address label on them with the name of the matching stamp sets? Anyone have any suggestions of what you do? I'd love to think in 5 years I'll remember the name of the sets that match the owl punch for example, but I know I won't! I am right now googling which tag and label sets go with which sets. And years ago, I thought I'd remember what those go to off hand!

I have always printed the name of the punch with my label maker and put in on the bottom of the punch. The stamp sets that have a coordinating punch, I use a small sticky note and write the name of the punch and place it on the stamp set. (The majority of my stamp sets are in clear plastic bags!)HTH

I just recently began writing the stamp set names onto the sleeves of their coordinating dies and the die names onto the stamp cases in permanent marker to make things easier for myself. I also write the embossing folder names in large print on the paper that has the image of it (I keep them in the cello sleeve they come in) because I often can't read the micro-font of the manufacturer! Prior to that, I was holding myself hostage to the idea that I didn't want to deface the original packaging, thinking if/when I may want to sell anything it would be more appealing "clean" lol! With my eyesight not quite as fine as in the past, I came to the realization that, hey, this is my stuff and I need to do what works for me! And while I have been writing the punch name onto the matching stamp case, I've been pondering how to label the punch itself- there's only so much real estate available on the body of even the largest of punches. I hadn't thought about, but like Connie's method of using a label maker to add on the punch name. I'l be interested to see other responses to the OP, as I, too, thought as a new demo that I'd be able to rely solely on memory for such info. Now I just chuckle when I realize my folly!

I use the punch with usually green cardstock and then place the punchies in the container with the stamps . I store my stamps in a cupboard behind my work space and my punches are all in bottom two drawers of my desk. This helps me remember when I pull out a stamp set that I have a matching punch.

My stamps are in the plastic containers with a removable paper description. I slide it out and, at the bottom, write "coordinates with...". The dies are on magnetic sheets in pages in plastic boxes (forget the exact name!) and have a list of contents: die name and under that the stamp set name (why can't they be the same!) Of course, I am behind on getting this done for all the pieces.

I write on the stamp set sleeve, has coordinating punch and then punch out the shape and place it in the stamp case as a reminder of what the punch shape looks like.

Couldn't you just punch the shape and attach/adhere/store it with the stamp set? That sounds the easiest to me. Add the name and where you store the punch if needed.

ETA: didn't read the whole thread first. Great minds think alike!
