Hole punches are great for inserting your printed documents into a binder neatly. Hole punches are not, unfortunately, so great when they accidentally cut off different words throughout your work. You can easily adjust your Word document’s margins to make room when using a hole punch or printing to pre-punched paper.

To leave room for a hole punch, you’ll need to adjust the layout of your document. It’s better to do so ahead of time so you can see how moving the margins affects the layout of your document.

To know how large to make the margins, consider the size of your hole punch or pre-punched paper. Most hole punches (whether you’re punching two holes at the top or three holes on the side of the page) punch about 0.5 inches from the edge of the paper. We recommend measuring your punch or paper to make sure and maybe even making the margins just a bit bigger. If your punch does measure out at 0.5 inches, for example, you might want to make your margins 0.75″ to be on the safe side.

Once you know how big to make your margins, head to the “Layout” tab in Word and click the “Margins” button.

You’ll only need to adjust margins on one side of the paper for a hole puncher, so go ahead and click the “Custom Margins” command on the drop-down menu.

You’ll want to change the margins on the side that you want to hole punch. If you’re adding hole punches to the top of your document, for example, you’ll add your measurement to the “Top” margin. If you’re putting them on the left, you’ll add it to the “Left” margin.

Here, we’re adding 0.75″ to Word’s default 1.0″ top margin to make room for a two hole punch at the top of the page.

If you’re printing a double-sided document that will go into a binder to form a book, you’ll want to adjust the “Gutter” margin instead of adjusting the left or right margins. A gutter margin setting adds extra space to inside margin of each page, so to the left margin on the fronts of pages (usually the odd-numbered pages) and the right margin on the backs of pages (usually the even-numbered pages).

When you’ve got your margins set, hit “OK” and your margins are saved. Now you’ll be able to punch holes to your heart’s delight!

Hole punches are great for inserting your printed documents into a folder in an orderly manner. Unfortunately, hole punchers aren’t that great when they accidentally cut out different words throughout their work. You can easily adjust your Word document margins to make room when using a hole punch or printing on prepunched paper.

To make room for a hole punch, you’ll need to adjust the layout of your document. It’s best to do this ahead of time so you can see how moving the margins affects the layout of your document.

To find out how big your margins should be, consider the size of your hole punch or pre-punched paper. Most hole punches (whether you’re drilling two holes on the top or three on the side of the page) punch about 0.5 inches from the edge of the paper. We recommend measuring your punch or paper to make sure and maybe even make the margins a bit bigger. If your punch is 0.5 inches, for example, you might want your margins to be 0.75″ to be safe.

Once you know the size of your margins, go to the “Layout” tab in Word and click the “Margins” button.

You’ll only need to adjust the margins on one side of the paper for a hole punch, so go ahead and click the “Custom Margins” command in the drop-down menu.

You’ll want to change the margins on the side you want to punch. If you are adding perforations to the top of your document, for example, it will add your measurement to the “Top” margin. Placing them to the left will add it to the “Left” margin.

Here, we’re adding 0.75″ to Word’s default top margin of 1.0″ to make room for a two-hole punch at the top of the page.

If you are printing a double-sided document that will be placed in a folder to form a book, you will want to adjust the “margin” margin instead of adjusting the left or right margins. A margin margin setting adds extra space to the inside margin of each page, that is, to the left margin on the front of pages (usually odd pages) and the right margin on the back of pages (usually even pages). .

When you have set your margins, press “OK” and your margins will be saved. Now you can make holes to your heart’s delight!

    I use two kinds of planners. My everyday planner is a large Kikki.K or a medium | A5 and my business planning planner is a large disc bound or A4, with Levenger gold metal discs. We’ll get to sizes and binding in an upcoming article, so stay tuned for that one.

    If you don’t have a specialty hole punch you can follow these simple steps with your two hole punch for the same result.

    Punching Holes for Ring Bound Planners

    Below are two methods I have used to punch holes in my planner inserts for my ring bound binders. The first method is how I began punching holes in my planner pages and the second method is how I punch my pages now.

    >> Create a planner unique to you and works the way you do … It’s the secret to organising your day with less overwhelm + more joy! | whitespacedesignstudio.com #flourishwithwhitespace #plannerprintables #fuselifeplanner #planning #productivity #plannerkit” width=”600″ height=”287″ srcset=”https://www.whitespacedesignstudio.com/wp-content/uploads/WSDS_article_1802_holePunch1-600×287.jpg 600w, https://www.whitespacedesignstudio.com/wp-content/uploads/WSDS_article_1802_holePunch1-768×368.jpg 768w, https://www.whitespacedesignstudio.com/wp-content/uploads/WSDS_article_1802_holePunch1-610×292.jpg 610w, https://www.whitespacedesignstudio.com/wp-content/uploads/WSDS_article_1802_holePunch1.jpg 800w” sizes=”(max-width: 600px) 100vw, 600px” />

    Method 1 : using a 2 or 1 hole punch
    1. Use an existing planner page with holes already punched to mark where your holes should go. Use a pencil and trace the outlines of the circles.
    2. Next I’d take the bottom off my hole punch that collects the confetti. Be sure to check that it is not holding any confetti first.
    3. Turn your hole punch over so you can see the bottom when the sharp circles poke through to cut your card + paper.
    4. Position your card or paper into position so you can see the circle you drew in the middle of the hole.
    5. Hold steady + punch. Repeat steps 4 + 5 for all your holes. Easy!
    Method 2 : using a 2 or 1 hole punch

    You can use this method if you can see through the base of your hole punch.

    1. Use an existing planner page with holes already punched to mark where your holes should go. Use a black pen to mark the centre with a dot.
    2. Turn your hole punch over so you can see where the sharp circles poke through to cut your card + paper.
    3. Position your card or paper into position so you can see the dot you drew in the middle of the hole.
    4. Hold steady + punch. Repeat steps 4 + 5 for all your holes. Easy!

    Punching Holes for Disc Bound Planners

    If you use a disc bound system for your planner you’ll need a specialty hole punch to make the unique holes that attach your paper to the discs. They really are worth the investment for a good one.

    I use the Levenger Circa Universal Desk Punch and it’s fabulous! Easy to use and even cuts through clear kitchen mats that I use as covers. I’ll talk more about binding + covering your planner in an upcoming article.

    #tip : I’ve read that pages punched with a Levenger punch turn easier with all kinds of discs than pages punched with a Staples Arc hole punch. The arc on the Levenger is just a tiny bit more spacious which is why the pages turn more freely.

    We R Memory Keepers have a very unique planner punch that fits all kinds of planner binder types and sizes. I’ve linked to it in the shopping guide below. You can use the accessory pack for special spiral punches and have the punch do the hard work for you.

    If you don’t want to purchase a specialty disc punch you can use a one or two hole punch just like you would for ring bound planners with an extra step at the end.

    1. Use an existing planner page with holes already punched to mark where your holes should go. Use a black pen to mark the center with a dot.
    2. Turn your hole punch over so you can see where the sharp circles poke through to cut your card + paper.
    3. Position your card or paper into position so you can see the dot you drew in the middle of the hole.
    4. Hold steady + punch. Repeat steps 4 + 5 for all your holes.
    5. Then to finish use your scissors to do two small cuts between the edge of your paper and the center of the hole about 1mm apart. This small gap will give your the room to attach your page to your disc rings.

    Punching Holes for Spiral Bound Planners

    We R Memory Keepers have a very unique planner punch that fits all kinds of planner binder types and sizes. I’ve linked to it in the shopping guide below. You can use the accessory pack for special spiral punches and have the punch do the hard work for you.

    I also found in my research that you can insert pages into your spiral bound planner by using a disc hole punch. Because of the unique way the holes are cut you can add the pages as long as they fit the width of your spiral coil. I haven’t tried this technique but thought I’d share it with you in case you wanted to try it.

    Hole Punch Shopping Guide

    We R Memory Keepers Planner Punch Board < adjustable holes >: this beauty is your one stop shop for all kinds of planner binder and systems. The punch board comes with planner chart on the base of the punch for punch positions for a wide range of planners such as such as Simple Stories Carpe Diem (ring version), Webster’s Pages Color Crush, Prima, Heidi Swapp, Filofax, Daytimer, Franklin Covey, A5, 7 ring, and others.

    There is also an accessories pack that punches holes for disc + spiral bound planners too!

    Why the punch list matters

    The punch list stage is essential on a construction job. It lets the GC and owner know that the subs finished their projects and expect their payments. These final payments typically include the amounts withheld in retainage throughout the project. The final payment can represent a contractor’s entire profit margin, if not more.

    That’s why it’s so important that the punch list stage goes as smoothly as possible. The fewer hangs up while finishing this list of “snags,” the sooner everyone can make their money and move onto the next project.

    Luckily, putting together a comprehensive punch list doesn’t have to be rocket science.

    Using a punch list

    The idea behind a punch list is very simple:

    1. The owner or owner’s representative (often an architect or designer) walks through a project as it nears completion.
    2. This person takes notes of all the issues, damage, mistakes, and other items that don’t meet the plans.
    3. The representative enters the issues into the punch list template by number, with a brief description and the location of the snag.
    4. This punch list then goes to the GC or project manager, and that person divvies the work up between the appropriate subcontractors.
    5. The subs then handle the tasks assigned to them, notifying the GC or project manager when they’re complete.

    After submitting a punch list

    Once punch work is done, you’ll likely submit the completed list with your final payment application. Keep a copy for your records, and it’s a good idea to take photos to document your completed work.

    Just because punch list items are complete doesn’t mean that payment is guaranteed. It’s important for subcontractors (and the general) to track the lien and notice deadlines in their project’s state.

    Every state has mechanics lien laws that protect a construction company’s right to payment. In some states, subs may be required to send a notice before they’re allowed to file a lien.

    How to Cut Printable Labels for Organizing Your Stuff

    • I usually use white printer paper or card stock to print the labels and then cut them with a small paper cutter that I bought at the craft store.

    How to Laminate Printable Labels for Organizing Your Stuff

    • I make all my labels wipeable by using self-sealing clear laminating sheets over them. I buy the sheets at Walmart and Staples.
    • You can add the lamination before or after cutting out the labels depending on the look you want.
    • Follow the directions on the self-sealing laminating sheet package.

    There are two ways to use self-seal laminating sheets when making labels.

    1. Cut out the labels. Lay the label face down on the shiny non-sticky side of the laminating sheet, place the sticky side over the back of the label. When cutting you will need to leave about 1/8″ – 1/4″ of lamination all around the label so the lamination can seal. This is the way I make most of my labels.

    2. Lay a cut out label or a sheet of labels face down on the sticky side of the laminating sheet and then cut out the label right along the shape of the label. This leaves the back with no lamination, but you don’t see it. There will be no lamination border around the labels this way, but the fronts will be shiny and protected.

    How to Attach Printable Labels for Organizing Your Stuff

    1. Using a hole punch, punch a hole on both ends of your label.
    2. Push a closed brass fastener into each hole.

    To Attach Labels on Boxes: Use an awl to make two holes on the center of the front of the box. These holes should be the same distance as the holes punched into the label. Use brass fasteners to attach the label to the box.

    How to Add Words To the the Free Printable Labels

    Using Photoshop or Photo-Editing App

    Once I have saved the .pdf file to my computer. I open Photoshop Elements and upload the file to add the wording to each label. I use various fonts that I have them on my computer for free.

    Using Microsoft Word or Word Processing Programs

    If you have Microsoft Word – You can choose any pretty font to add to your computer and type the words into a Word document in the font size needed to fit on the label. Print this out. Tape it to a window and center and hold your label over the word and trace the word onto your label. EZ peasy. 🙂

    Simply Write the Words on the Labels

    If you don’t have access to photo editing apps or a word process program, you can simply use a black marker to write the word you want on each label.

    Spiral binding, or coil binding, is a process that holds multiple page documents together with a piece of plastic woven through a series of closely punched holes. A coil binding machine is used both to punch the holes into the paper and to insert the plastic binding coil. These machines are relatively easy to use, as long as you have set them up properly for the size of the document you need to bind. Give the appearance of a professional upgrade to your school projects, family photo albums or reports and presentations with spiral binding.

    Purchase a coil binding machine. Select a machine appropriate for the volume of binding you will regularly be doing. Machines can hold between 25 pages and 125 pages at a time. If you are using the machine for home projects, you should only need a smaller machine. A small business who regularly binds reports and other documents may choose to invest in a larger machine.

    Leave the appropriate amount of margin space on your document’s pages prior to printing. Standard spiral coils require 1 to 1 1/2-inch margins with a 1/2-inch margin on the left hand side of the paper. If your print is too close to the edge of the paper, you risk having the holes and coils punching through your text.

    Gather your document pages together. Don’t forget to include a front and back cover. Double-check that all your pages are in the correct order and turned the right way.

    Punch holes in the paper using the coiling machine. If your machine has a capacity for 25 pages at a time, insert only 20 pages for punching at once. A general rule of thumb is to punch no more than 80% of the machine’s page capacity at a time. This will help your machine to last longer.

    Double-check again that all pages are in the right order and facing the right way after you have punched your holes. Also make certain all pages are in alignment with one another before moving on to inserting the coil binding.

    Spin the coil binding through the punched holes in your document. You may need to manually feed the coil through the first three to four holes. The machine’s electric coil inserter should then be able to takeover and complete the binding.

    Crimp both ends of the coil binding with a pair of coil crimping pliers. In most cases, these pliers can be purchased from the same company where you purchased the spiral binding machine. Crimping removes any excess binding from your document and helps keep the binding from working loose.

    For a single binding project, you can also print your document and take it to any major office supply store to be spiral bound. Call the store in advance to get specific requirements for your page margins.

    Spiral binding coils come in a variety of colors.

    In the construction industry, a punch list refers to a list of repairs and incomplete work items remaining at the end of a project that must be finished before a contractor can receive payment. The plans and specifications outlined in the original contract provide a guide for checking the quality and completeness of a building project.

    Included on this page, you’ll find a variety of helpful punch list templates, like a project management punch list template, a construction punch list template, a simple punch list template, and many more – all free for download.

    Inspection Tips for Owners

    If you end up with zero items on your punch list, you have reason to celebrate – and your contractor will too, given the cost savings involved. However, you still have to go through an inspection process to determine that no repairs are necessary. Here are a few tips to keep in mind while doing a final walk through of the property:

    • Use Blue Tape: Mark punch list areas with blue tape so they stand out and contractors have an easy visual reference. Carry a roll of it with you as you do your walkthrough, and mark each item that you add to the punch list.
    • Bring a Friend: Having a second person with you will reduce the chances that you overlook something or forget to check an area.
    • Take Your Time: Don’t rush the process, and be sure to inspect all installations as well as details (like the quality of the paint job).
    • Bring Plans and Specifications: If you’re unsure about whether some work matches the contract agreement, keep the documents on hand as a reference.
    • Take Notes: Write down the issues you see and any information that will be helpful for (the contractor or for yourself) to ensure that the issue is resolved.

    Punch List: From Hole Punches to the Digital Age

    While there are no concrete sources online for the origin of the phrase, the most likely hypothesis is that contractors and architects used to punch holes on a list to denote completed items. This created a “punch” list that was used during inspection and for documentation. A punch list may also be referred to as a snag list, which makes sense since unfinished or incorrect items are obstacles to completing a project, or “snags” in the process. In construction, “snagging” is a term used for identifying all the errors and omissions that you need to add to the snag list and correct. In some cases, you may also see punch list written as one word: punchlist.

    Punch lists may have traditionally been physical documents with a list of items that you could punch or check off by hand, but digital punch lists are becoming increasingly common. A digital punch list may be included as part of construction management software or used as a mobile app. You can choose from web-based options and tools, and the templates provided below.

    Back to school time means it’s time to start thinking about packing school lunches.

    Last year we taught our kids how to pack their own school lunches and it worked really well. This year I wanted to get them excited about school lunches again so came up with these cute printable lunch box tags for their lunchboxes.

    I’m excited to partner with Horizon Organic to share these free printable lunch box tags with you!

    Free Printable Lunch Box Tags

    • PRINTABLE SCHOOL LUNCH BOX TAGS
    • scissors
    • laminator
    • hole punch
    • ribbon or string

    Download the free printable lunch box tags and save to your computer. Have your kids choose their favorite tag and add their name to it using a word processing program. (See instructions below.)

    Print the tags out at home or an office supply store. Laminate them for durability and cut out–if you choose to go to an office supply store they can print and laminate for you. Use the hole punch to create a hole in the corner of the tag and tie it to the lunch box with ribbon or string.

    The lunch box tags not only jazz up your child’s lunch box–they also help it find it’s owner in case it gets misplaced. These same tags can also be used on backpacks or as luggage tags too!

    How to Add a Name to the Lunch Box Tags

    1. Open and download lunch box tag printable as a Word document.
    2. Open it and add a text box to the top of the tag you want to make.
    3. Make sure to check “no fill” and “no outline”.
    4. Type your child’s name in whatever font and color you like.
    5. Save and print.

    Getting kids excited about back to school is a great way to make the transition easier for them. Letting them personalize their lunch box with a new tag and choose some favorite foods and snacks will give kids something to look forward to at lunchtime. My kids love how Horizon’s snacks taste so we are already stocking up at our house for easy lunch packing.

    To make lunchtime even more special I like to add in a little note or drawing or even a silly joke for the kids to find–it’s a great way to let them know you are thinking about them during the day.

    Hi!
    I love your lunchbox tags. The green camo downloads as a green with black chevron.
    Is there a way to send the green camo to me?

    Thank you in advance

    Hi Nan! That is the weirdest thing. When I try and open it it is showing the green chevron now too. I have no idea how that could even happen. I’m guessing the camo graphic is no longer in Mircosoft Word and it automatically converts it to the chevron. I’m so sorry about that. I cannot fix it for you.

    Have you ever been around a person who can quote Scripture at the drop of a hat, who is able to apply the wisdom of the Bible in any given circumstance and respond to the questions and conversation going on around them? It’s a pretty amazing thing to witness, if you haven’t. There is an authority and believability to a person’s words when they are able to quote verses from memory – you just automatically think, “Wow, they really know what they are talking about!”

    That’s why we’ve put together this quick post on how to create your own Scripture memorization cards. These cards are great for helping you memorize the Bible passages you want to remember, as well as a tool for helping you realign and inspire yourself at any moment, by helping you concentrate on Scripture.

    The other great thing about these cards is they are so portable that you can have them with you anytime.

    And because these cards are so nice and attractive, you’ll actually want to use them when you’re out and about. You can just pull these out when you’re stuck in a long line at the deli, or sitting in the car waiting for your kid’s practice to finish, or just waiting during your flight layover.

    A professor of ours in seminary used to say, “You cannot use what you cannot remember.” So true, right? How many times have you read something, and then only minutes later, cannot accurately convey what you read to someone else?

    The ability to use information when we need it is one of the most important skills a person can possess, and that’s why Scripture memorization is so important.

    We need to be able to depend on God’s wisdom at all times.

    Scripture is something that I use everyday of my life, and in fact, is one of the cornerstones of my faith. God revealed Himself to us through Scripture, and if we acknowledge that God is the most important thing in our lives, then we can certainly see the value of memorizing Scripture and adding important verses from it to the tip of our tongue.

    The problem is that memorization isn’t always easy, right? Especially if you’re busy and don’t have a lot of time to focus. I’m betting you would love to be able to quote your favorite verses from memory; you’d love to be able to access the Scripture that most inspires you anytime, without even having to reach for a Bible – but what’s the best way to internalize those favorite messages in a way that fits your life?

    That’s why we’ve come up with this tutorial/guide for making Scripture memorization cards that you’re going to love carrying with you everywhere!

    These cards are a creative, fun and beautiful way to memorize Scripture. And, you can literally take any Scripture you want and put on these cards for memorization.

    These cards are really quite simple to make – you don’t have to have great crafting abilities! This project is for any skill level!

    Materials:

    -Cardstock paper, scrapbook paper or even pictures. Anything will do for the background! I used something similar to this.

    -Vellum paper, this is what you will use to print the Scripture.

    -Vellum glue, this dries clear and you will not see any glue through the transparent vellum paper.

    -Scissors or paper cutter

    -Laminating machine. If you don’t have one, you can get one here or you can go to a teacher or office supply store and for a small fee have them laminate your cards.

    Here’s a pic of what I used for this project!

    How to make your own Scripture Memorization Cards

    Step 1

    Pick some of your favorite Scripture. If you are struggling to find some good Scripture to memorize just google “top Scripture” and you can some beloved verses to inspire you.

    Step 2

    Take the Scripture you chose and type it out in a word processor, like Word or Pages. Make sure you leave enough space in your document to nicely cut your words out. I put two Scripture verses on each page, that way I was left with tons of room to cut out with plenty of space left over.

    Step 3

    Print out your Scripture. I used vellum paper to print mine, which is a nice translucent paper. I wanted to make sure my background paper would still be seen. However, you could use whatever paper you fancy.

    Step 4

    Cut out your Scripture.

    Step 5

    Pick the background paper you would like to use for each of your verses.

    Step 6

    Take your background paper and your Scripture and adhere glue to the back of the Scripture printout. Center the Scripture and place it on your background paper. Note – if you are using vellum paper, make sure you use vellum glue. Vellum glue dries transparent and will not leave glue marks.

    Step 7

    In order to create durability, run each Scripture card through a laminating machine. I got my laminator on Amazon and it is nice to have around the house for random projects.

    Keep in mind, laminating is optional, but it will keep your cards in tip top shape so you can carry them in your bag, in the car or even on your keys.

    Step 8

    Take a hole punch and punch a hole in the top left hand corner of each card.

    Step 9

    Thread a key ring through all the cards and viola, you have a set of your very own beautiful Scripture memorization cards!

    That’s it. Super simple, completely customizable in every way, and something that you’ll want to use everyday. Don’t forget, these cards would make a great gift too, so if you have someone in mind, be in prayer for the perfect verses to use for this project.

    For those of you who may think this is out of your crafting capabilities, you can purchase Scripture coloring postcards. Color those and laminate and you can replicate this process!

    I got these cards on Amazon, you can find them here.

    Have a great time making these cards, and we really hope they help you in your quest to memorize the profound beauty and wisdom God has given us in Scripture.

    *My cards measure 4inch by 4inch. But you can make them to whatever size you would like!
