The hole punch protection method

Here is an easy way to spackle or paint small areas with very little clean up, while protecting surrounding areas.

All you need is painters/masking tape and a hole punch.

Just rip a small piece of tape, punch the hole and place the tape over the area that needs to be touched up.
