I had been storing them in an acrylic box and they were all jumbled together. It would be wonderful to have each applicator with its own labeled wooden handle but requires more storage room and a substantial investment.
So this is what I came up with.
It started with a plastic palette for acrylic paints and a box of Scotch multipurpose fasteners. This comes in two large rolls and I cut a square to mount on the palette and placed the foam applicator over each square. There is adhesive on the back of the square, that made it super easy. This is a close up picture:
I typed the names of the Distress Inks printed and cut them out and laminated them. Adhered those to the palette using Glossy Accents. Now each foam applicator has its own special place. It was a happy coincidence that the palette size was just right for the number of inks I had. If and when I add to my collection I can just turn it over and add to the backside. The dimensions of the palette are 14.5" by 10", and it is lightweight so it will be easy to take wherever I need it. Now I'm trying to think of a way to add a nib for each color. Any ideas?
Now that things are back to normal I hope to get some crafting time in :) Thanks for stopping by!
