Craftroom Storage: Ink Pads – Hang Them Up!
Craftroom storage for your ink pads frustrating you? Come ‘hang with us!’
Hello There Crafty Peeps!
We hope this post finds you kicking off your week with a focus on creating.
I’ll be working on party decor for my mother-in-law’s 80th birthday.
I’ve got a picture in my head of how I want the room decor to look and I’ve been ‘collecting’ items to make it a reality.
I can’t wait to see if it comes together like the image I have in my head! Fingers crossed…
And now, on to today’s share – it’s a quick one, a simple and inexpensive solution for storing your ink pads.
I love having lots of ink pads available when I’m creating, but having so many on hand has resulted in my having them stashed in large containers, containers that (when stacked) can get quite heavy and aren’t as easy to access (in my space) as I’d like.
And, these large containers take up a lot of space on my work area when I bring them out of where they’re stored.
I’ve stored my Ranger Distress Ink Pads (along with other ink pads) in these 10″ x 14″ Snapware Snap N Stack rectangular containers for years and it’s been a great solution when I needed to take them with me to crafting events (where I did most of my crafting).
But now that I craft almost exclusively in my craft studio/office, I need a different solution – a solution that not only provides ample storage, but easy access and portability (should I need to take them along on a future crafting adventure).
And, a solution that doesn’t take up valuable real estate on my work surface.
Well folks, I’ve found a solution I absolutely adore!
Check out this Hanging Jewelry Organizer from Sheffield Home.
This version is called the ‘Amour,’ which is perfect considering it’ll be home to my beloved Ranger Distress Ink Pads!
It has 30 small pockets and three larger pockets on each side.
And you know what that means, right?
It’s perfect for holding all 60 colors of Distress Ink…and then some!
It’s also trimmed with black and white stripes and has a huge silver heart in the background – could it be any cuter?!
As you can see, I bought two of these…well actually, I bought four!!!
I am so in love with this craftroom storage solution, which is ideal for my limited closet storage space, that I had to make sure I had enough space for ALL of my ink pads to be stored in this fashion.
Now all four of these organizers will be hung in my craft studio/office closet and I’ll have super easy access to my inks without their storage container taking up space on my work area when I’m creating.
(In case you’re wondering, my closet is just to the left of my work table.)
And, the larger pockets in this organizer are perfect for my other Ranger ink pads, or even inking tools – see below.
Think you might want one of these hanging organizers?
I took a picture of the tag that came on these in case any of you want to try and find one (or more) for your ink pads – here’s the front of the tag:
And here’s the back of the tag (with the UPC, item number and price – these were purchased at Tuesday Morning):
So, what do you think?
Does a hanging organizer sound like a solution
that’d work for your ink pads?
Or, perhaps for another crafty supply?
